You may purchase most courses and products online through the shopping cart, or use our printable order form. Workforce Training Solutions courses are not available for purchase online. Please contact a training consultant (800) 944-8503 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
If you do not have an item number or would like to browse our courses and products , add the item you would like to purchase to your shopping cart as you browse. Once you have completed your shopping, you may purchase your items online by credit card.
Currently, we accept credit cards to purchase courses and products. You can use American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa.
Here are a few tips for ensuring your purchases are processed correctly. First, make sure that you enter all of the billing information correctly, including the phone number (with area code), zip code and country. If you leave any of these items blank, your transaction may not be approved. Also remember that when you enter the credit card information, the account number and name/address must be the ones associated with your card. For example, if you are using a corporate card that is billed to your company but you enter your personal address as the billing address, the transaction will not be approved because the addresses do not match.

Yes, we practice safe and secure e-commerce. When credit card information is requested, we utilize a credit card authorization company for secure SSL encryption. This ensures that your credit card number is never sent over the Internet unencrypted. Once it is encrypted, no one except the credit card authorization company can decrypt it. Your credit card number is never displayed on our site. Also, your personal data (such as your address, e-mail and billing information) are stored in a server safe within the Fred Pryor Seminars & CareerTrack database. Only those with proper authorization can view this data.
a. What is SSL encryption?
To protect our members, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the credit card information you send when you place your order. The information is encrypted on your computer, sent through the Internet as scrambled code, and decoded on a secure server. Fred Pryor Seminars and CareerTrack will not store your credit card information. It cannot be read in transit. SSL is the recognized industry standard worldwide for such sensitive transactions, making it safe for you to shop with a credit card on the Internet. Even banks transfer money and complete credit card transactions using this secure method.
b. Why isn't my browser indicating "locked"?
SSL encryption ensures that transaction information is sent securely but has a significant performance tradeoff in the browser environment. You may have noticed that our web site employs frames for easier navigation and more efficient page updates. With this in mind, we selectively place SSL encryption only on those forms and frames that need to be encrypted (i.e., when the credit card information is requested). Since things like our navigation buttons and menus do not need to be slowed down by SSL, we do not employ it there.
Unfortunately (but for obvious reasons) browsers won't show the safe "key" or "lock" unless each and every frame on the page is SSL encrypted. Thus, if only one frame is encrypted, the browser correctly reports that not everything you are looking at is "safe." However, the absence of the "lock" or "key" does not mean that the information you are looking at is not encrypted.
You can verify that a frame is SSL encrypted by right-clicking within the frame and looking at the frame info or properties (i.e., found in the "View" menu in Netscape and the "File" menu in Internet Explorer). Doing this when the credit card information is requested will indeed show that this information is being sent encrypted and any security concerns you may have should be relieved.
You will receive your product within 10 business days from the time of your purchase.
