What are the terms of use?

Don’t think of us as tedious or overly formal, but we will require our attendees to sign and agree to our Terms of Use upon registering and joining our program. It states that you cannot share, alter, translate, upload, or copy our materials, systems, or methods.   We want everyone to 'play well' so we do have some rules in place. 

We are happy and eager to share our knowledge, but please respect our wishes and refer others to our training program if they want to learn more. We have a referral program in place that we can tell you about and when you refer you'll get lots more than just good karma!  

We also insist that you agree to follow the trademark rules set out by the LEGO® Systems Group.  

And as you know, this is facilitator training only, not train the trainer.  Please read the full agreement below to understand the Terms of Use.
