Enrollee Requirements
JCI educational programs are open to employees of health care organizations that are seeking or considering seeking JCI accreditation. JCI reserves the right to remove participants who do not meet these criteria at any time.

Refunds and Exchanges
JCI regrets that we cannot accommodate refund requests. JCI is happy to transfer registrations to other members of an organization. Unused registrations cannot be applied to other JCI programs or services.

Joint Commission International reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a program due to an insufficient number of registrants or other unforeseen circumstances. If a program must be cancelled, the registration fee will be refunded in full to each registrant. You may verify current program status on our website or by calling JCI Customer Service at +1.770.238.0454.  Neither Joint Commission International nor The Joint Commission is responsible for a registrant's travel expenses in the event a program is cancelled. Participants are encouraged to purchase refundable tickets in case a program is cancelled or rescheduled. Participants should also be aware that most airline tickets, including nonrefundable or discounted tickets, can be reissued within one year from the date the original ticket was issued.

Option 1: Register via Wire Transfer
To register using a wire transfer, please contact JCI’s registration team at

Wire transfer registration closes three weeks before the start of the program. Wire transfers often involve processing by several intermediary banks, which can take as long as two weeks. Since JCI must receive course fees prior to enrolling participants, the wire transfer option closes three weeks prior to the start of the program.

The submission of wire transfer forms and/or payment does not guarantee your registration. Due to the high volume of interested participants and our limited enrollment capacity, enrollment can only be accepted and confirmed after JCI has received all forms and payments. Forms and payments submitted after our capacity has been reached will not be honored. Please do not make travel or hotel arrangements until your enrollment has been confirmed.

Proforma invoice is not a confirmation of enrollment. Participants listed on the proforma invoice are not registered. Many organizations require a proforma invoice before they will process payment. JCI practicum participants are only registered once JCI has received payment, assuming space is still available.

JCI cannot register participants without payment. JCI will not be able to reserve seats prior to receiving payment. Your place in the practicum is only assured after JCI receives your enrollment fee, assuming space is still available.

Option 2: Register via Credit Card
Registering via credit card is an easy way to enroll in the JCI Practicum. To register via credit card, please use JCI's online registration system.
