MBREA seeks to provide our students a positive and effective learning experience. Doing so requires asking you to respect and follow these guidelines:
  • State education regulations require us to monitor the amount of time you spend in the classroom. Absences that extend beyond scheduled breaks and lunch may result in our inability to provide you with credit for the class.
  • Please do not leave the classroom while the class is in session to make or receive telephone calls.
  • Use of laptops during class is prohibited, except when used as part of the classroom instruction and their use is permitted by the instructor.
  • Most locations have WIFI available however, there should be no internet use during class instruction time. Laptops are to be stored under the table while the class is in session.
  • Please turn your cell phones off. If you are expecting an urgent call, please discuss this with the instructor before the class begins.
  • During class, please do not accept or make telephone calls or receive or send text messages, emails or engage in other communications with business associates and others.
  • Please do not have ongoing conversations with those near you or engage in other behavior that distracts from the class.
  • Reading non-course/seminar materials, such as newspapers and books must be put away during class, unless they are being used in the class instruction.
  • In the case of extraordinary circumstances or events not covered under these policies, the decision of the instructor and/or the MBREA will apply.
The instructor or the MBREA reserves the right to ask students to refrain from behavior that is detrimental to the learning experience. Students who choose not to acquiesce to requests to modify behavior will be asked to leave the class and will not receive credit or a refund.
