No course and no refund

I finally decided that I wanted to get my Thai teacher's license after teaching here for quite a few years. To this end I enrolled in the next "culture course " in Bangkok, paid 5,000 baht and steeled my resolve to get it over with. But not to be. I received an e-mail from the course provider informing me that the course had been postponed indefinitely due to a meeting of the Teachers's Council which was looking at changes to the whole program. I will be informed if and when there is to be a course and what the new requirements will be (No mention of a refund of my 5,000 baht however). Ah well, at least The Ministry of Education gave me another two-year waiver on the basis of my having good intentions as to progressing down the ever lengthening path to registration.
