Is this a live event? Do I need to be present a specific time?

No. Since we have students from all over the world, it makes it impossible to schedule live courses. These lessons have been pre-recorded so that you can watch anytime and anywhere as long as you have high-speed Internet connection on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

You can watch the videos in parts if you can't watch the entire video all at once. You can forward and rewind the video lessons from your instructor as often as you wish during your enrollment in the course. This is an added bonus, because everyone knows that there is no rewinding instructors information when taking a physical workshop. We made it easy for anyone in the world to learn from the very best.

Do I need a fast Internet connection?

Yes – it will help alleviate frustration.  All Painthog courses stream in HD. A minimum download speed of 5.0 Mbps is recommended to stream video lessons and attend these courses.

You may check with your Internet provider (ISP) or click here to visit and test your download speed before enrolling in a course.. If your system downloads at less than 5.0 Mbps you will experience streaming video issues and this makes watching unenjoyable. 

For our international and frequent traveling students we recommend checking this handy link for internet speeds across the world to see if you'll have good connection. 

Lastly, if you can watch this video without interruption then your Internet is most likely fast enough for our courses.

Can I get a refund if I can't complete course or workshop?

No refunds are available. We offer credit to take another course when your time allows. 

Do these courses need to be viewed on desktop computer only?

No. As long as you have high-speed Internet connection our courses can be viewed on a desktop, laptop or mobile device.

How do I ask questions?
