If you have additional questions, please get in touch with us by emailing

1. What is the refund policy for the ONTRAPORT Certification Course? 

Your registration fee for the ONTRAPORT Certification Course is not refundable, but  it is transferable. Please get in touch with us by two weeks before the course start date to transfer your registration to a later course or another person within your organization.

2. What is the difference between the ONTRAPORT Certification Course and ONTRAPORT Bootcamp?

ONTRAPORT Bootcamp includes three full days of software training and basic strategy training for growing your business. On the afternoon of the third day, Bootcamp attendees work in-person with our Customer Success team to build funnels in their account and get any remaining questions answered in-depth. 

The ONTRAPORT Certification Course begins with the same three days of software and basic strategy training. On the afternoon of the third day, the Certification Course splits off to delve into more advanced strategy training. On the final day, attendees sit for the ONTRAPORT Certification Exam. If they pass the exam, they are recognized as an ONTRAPORT Certified Consultant and receive the benefits and privileges that go along with their new status. 

3. I can’t make it this time. How often is the ONTRAPORT Certification Course held?

If you can’t make it to the next course, don’t worry — the course is held once per quarter. Check out the ONTRAPORT Certification Program home page to see all the upcoming course dates that have been announced. 

4. I want to have someone from my marketing team or my virtual assistant become an ONTRAPORT expert — does it make sense to send someone other than myself to the course?

There is no better way to train your team on the strategy and software than to send them to get Certified. We highly recommend this training for anyone who works in your ONTRAPORT account. Plus, since they will take the exam at the end, they’ll be able to prove that they successfully mastered all the skills taught throughout the week.

5. Do you offer discounts for groups?

Yes. If you’d like to bring more than one person to the ONTRAPORT Certification Course, please let us know how many people are in your group and we can discuss pricing. 

6. Is there an online version of the ONTRAPORT Certification Course? 

No — we believe that the in-person nature of the teaching at the ONTRAPORT Certification Course results in deeper learning and better results for our participants. If you are interested in online training, we have other courses available at ONTRAPORT Education, including ONTRAPORT Academy, a free course for all users to boost their software skills.

7. I want to get my entire team certified. Will you travel to us?

Please get in touch with us to discuss details about the number of people who will participate in the course, the dates you’re interested in getting certified and your location.

There will be an onsite Happy Hour to get to know the ONTRAPORT Team on the first evening directly after the course (for Santa Barbara courses).

You will be invited to these as as soon as they are planned.

Each day, the final session ends at 6 P.M. There will be several optional evening activities to attend during the week.

12. Are there any basic qualifications necessary to take the ONTRAPORT Certification Course?

After passing the ONTRAPORT Certification Exam, your Certification is valid for one year. To be recertified, you will need to pass the recertification exam. The cost for recertification is $500.

16. What happens if I don’t pass the ONTRAPORT Certification exam?

If you do not pass the exam at the end of the week after taking the course, we will contact you promptly to review the questions you missed and advise on areas you may need to review. Once you are ready, you may re-take the exam once at no cost. The re-take does not need to be administered in person. If you do not pass the re-take, you will be required to attend the ONTRAPORT Certification Course in person again before the next attempt.
