Registering with PTA or Cost Center Number

You should receive enrollment confirmation via email soon after you enroll. If you do not receive confirmation prior to class, submit a Help ticket.

Course Drop Policy

There are no drop fees for ITS fee-based classes. However, if you do not attempt to drop and do not attend the class, you will be charged the entire course fee.

To drop a class using the online registration program (STARS), log into Axess, click the "Training (STARS)" tab, go to the “My Learning” link, and find the class you wish to drop.
Please note: You can only drop online through STARS up until 11:59pm the previous day.

Classes with insufficient enrollment may be cancelled by the training provider. Should this occur, you will be notified and the fee will be refunded.
