For this reason, we require the applicant's Resume to be uploaded within the form, as well as Documentation of Proof that certifies credentials.

'Schedule and Bookings' Page
Users (Teacher/Faculty) that are approved to teach lessons on the ArtistaCloud platform will be given an email link to setup their account with Setmore, ArtistaCloud's third party scheduling and payment processing platform.
Users must create a login account on Setmore, in a timely manner in order to set or update working hours, as well as manage and keep track of booked lessons.
Faculty members have the responsibility to make updates to their working schedule as often as necessary so as to maintain accuracy of booking availabilities that are to be selected by the students upon booking.
All availabilities listed by the faculty member will appear on the client-side booking area and the client (student) will be given all rights to reserve open time slots.
In cases of emergency that cause faculty to be unavailabile during an 'Early Initial Booking' (First Time Customer/Student That Books A Lesson Close To 48 Hours Prior To The Booked Lesson Time), faculty may arrange a different available time by notifying and making arrangements with Administration. Administration will then try to make new arrangements with the student for a newly agreed time between the teacher and student.
Faculty are highly encouraged to log in to Setmore at any time to manage their working schedules. Faculty should consistently maintain an accurate availability schedule so as to avoid booking conflicts, especially in cases of 'Early Initial Bookings'.
Full Cancellations and Rescheduling details can be viewed in the section below.
Booking a Lesson
The Student will choose from the list of available Lesson times on a Faculty Member's schedule through the third party platform, Setmore. If a Student wants to request other availability, they may contact the Administration. The Administration will contact the Teacher and the Teacher may accept or deny the Student’s availability request at the Teacher’s discretion.
A Student may schedule a Lesson up to 48 hours prior to the faculty's next available lesson time slot.
Lessons booked on ArtistaCloud are expected to occur under the conditions of date, time, and duration with selected faculty member and is expected to be honored by both parties. In the event that one party is unable to honor the original conditions, a rescheduling or cancellation of the lesson can occur. See the next section for specific details.
Faculty are expected to maintain highly consistent attendance for lessons booked with them. Any cancellations or rescheduling must be made with at least 24 hours notice to the administration at email@example.com, so that all parties involved in the lesson can be contacted with proper given time.
Cancellation and Rescheduling
In any cancellation case, rescheduling is the preferred route if the faculty member is unable to give the lesson at the original booking time. Faculty member must contact administration with 24 hours notice.
Any cancellation, regardless of whether or not 24 hours notice is provided, is not recommended. Cancellations made by faculty members will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
In cases of emergencies, faculty is responsible to notify the administration and explain their reasoning. Failure to notify and explain reasoning within 24 hours of the lesson time can result in limited account access, limited platform rights, or complete termination of membership.
Cancellations or rescheduling made past the 24 hour notice will usually result in such penalties, but are forgiven under extreme circumstances such as emergencies. ArtistaCloud will allow 3 such cases per faculty member.
In cases of emergency that cause faculty to be unavailabile during an 'Early Initial Booking' (First Time Customer/Student That Books A Lesson Close To 48 Hours Prior To The Booked Lesson Time), faculty may arrange a different available time by notifying and making arrangements with Administration. Administration will then try to make new arrangements with the student for a newly agreed time between the teacher and student. It is highly recommended that faculty consistently maintain an accurate schedule of availability on Setmore so as to avoid booking conflicts, especially in cases of 'Early Initial Bookings'. Rescheduling caused from 'Early Initial Booking' situations are treated more leniently.
