Student Health Agreement:

Our programs are designed to be as inclusive as possible. However, if you have concerns with your physical or mental health, cognitive processing, vision, hearing, or hand dexterity PLEASE contact us at 585-349-7110 or email info@rocafc.com before signing up! Blacksmithing, welding and glass classes are physically demanding and involve intense heat from the forge, furnace, kiln, or torch. We want to ensure a satisfactory and SAFE experience for you, and all students and faculty. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


Class Refund Policy:

Please note, it is your responsibility as a customer/student to record the date and time of the class you purchase. Arc + Flame Center will not be responsible if the student does not show up to the class you purchased. If a student needs to cancel a class, please note that all cash refunds will be subjected to a $20 processing fee. Cash refunds are only available with at least 14 days notice from class date.

Class Cancellation Policy Options:

  • At least 14 days notice= Option of cash refund (with a $20 processing fee) or class credit
  • Between 13 days and 48 hours notice= Class credit
  • Less than 48 hours notice= No refund and no class credit

If Arc + Flame Center cancels a class, the student will have the option of receiving class credit or a cash refund. There will not be a processing fee for cash refunds if Arc + Flame Center cancels the class for any reason (ie: weather related, low enrollment, facility related).

If you have further questions, please email our Operations Manager at experience@rocafc.com or call 585-349-7110.
