Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have registered for a class, but now I am unable to attend on that date? If you have already registered for a Parenting class, please call the Workforce Training Office PRIOR to the date of the class to reschedule. If you reschedule in advance, all paid monies will be transferred to the new date.

I was scheduled to attend a class this past weekend. I didn’t make it and did not call before the class to reschedule. What do I do next? No-Call, No-Shows can reschedule for another Class, however, you will be required to pay again.

I went to the Parenting class on Saturday but I did not receive a certificate. Why? In order to receive a certificate upon the completion of the class you have to provide our office with completed registration and payment at least three (3) business days prior to the class. If you did not receive your certificate, but did attend the class, please call the Workforce Training Office at 1-865-354-3000 extension 4136 to determine what you need to provide in order to get your certificates.

Can I take the Online Parenting class? Online parenting classes are not currently available.

Can I take my kids with me to the class? No. Children of any age are not allowed in the class.

Do my spouse and I have to take the class at the same time? No. Parents can choose to attend the same class, however, most parents feel a little more at ease attending a different class than their spouse. In the event that an order of protection has been issued, RSCC will not allow those individuals to attend the same class.

Do I need to take anything to class with me? The only requirements at the time of class are: a photo ID and a pen or pencil. You will be required to sign in and stay for the entire four-hour class in order to receive your certificates.

I live outside the county or state where the divorce is filed, must I take the class there? You can attend any parenting seminar offered in any county served by Roane State Community College. The course is the same. (Currently we are approved for classes in Roane, Anderson and Loudon Counties.) 

Can my significant other attend the class? Yes! In fact, significant others, grandparents and step-parents are encouraged to attend because they may directly or indirectly affect decisions involving the child. For this reason they need to be reminded to keep the child’s best interest in mind.

I don’t want to take the class. This is a waste of time. The judge is the only person who can excuse you from this class because it is court mandated.

How long is the program? The state has mandated a 4-hour class.

What about arriving late or leaving early? You must attend all 4 hours. If you arrive late to class or leave early, you will not receive a certificate of completion and will have to repeat the class at a later date. You will also be charged for the new class. (Plan on arriving 15 minutes early to make sure you have plenty of time to locate the classroom.)

How do I register? Call 865-354-3000 ext. 4136, 865-481-2031 or any Roane State Community College campus for information. Registration can be taken by phone, in person or online.

What about refunds? There are no refunds for this seminar.
