Registration

Registration for the Sauna Masterclasses and other events of the International Bath Academy takes place only through the www.bath.academy registration system. Registration for the event is either "open" or "closed". Open registration is open to anyone, while closed registration is open to a narrower range of students who have completed or at least passed a certain number of courses in sauna education. The requirements may be different in each case and are described for each event separately.

Registration guide

Step 1. You read the description of the event and make sure that you are eligible and able to attend. If the registration is open, you will find the registration form at the bottom of the same page, if it is closed, you will find a link to your personal sauna activity area where you will find a list of all the events you are invited to register for. You fill in the form if required and click "register".

Use of gift vouchers. If you have a personalised gift voucher or discount/promotion code, please enter it during registration. Check that you have entered the code correctly and when you receive confirmation of the code - register.

Step 2. After entering the discount code, you will see the amount of the registration advance reduced. After clicking "register" you will be redirected to the PAYSERA online payment system. On the system page, you can choose how you want to pay the advance payment: by bank transfer, etc. Make a transfer. In case of a bank transfer, our system will receive a response from PAYSERA within a few minutes (usually seconds) about the payment made and will reserve your place in the seminar. In cases where only a voucher or points were sufficient for registration, the registration will be done immediately and without a cash transfer.
You will receive an email notification of successful registration.

Step 3. 24 hours before the day of the seminar www.bath.academy distance learning system will send you a reminder email.

Manual registration
