Terms and Conditions

Prices

All prices exclude VAT at 20%. The course price includes materials and exams, but does not include any travel, accommodation or living expenses. Quotations are valid for 7 days from the date they are sent to you.

Payments

Course fees, including VAT, are payable 15 working days before the course start date. Payments can be made via bank transfer, credit card, cheque or PayPal.

If payment has not been received for a candidate then unfortunately that candidate will not be able to attend the training. We can take payment as late as the day of the course, but in that instance it must be via credit card.

Cancellations or deferrals

If a candidate cancels a course with at least 4 weeks notice then they can have a full refund. If the cancellation is within 4 weeks then a partial refund can be had based upon the following scale:

  • 4 weeks or more - full refund
  • 3 to 4 weeks notice - 75% refund
  • 2 to 3 weeks notice - 50% refund
  • 0 to 2 weeks notice - 25% refund

Instead of a refund, a candidate has the option to defer their course to a later date. The maximum deferral period from the original course date is 2 calendar months, i.e. the course must be taken within 2 months of the original booking date.

Non Attendance

Non-attendance of the candidate of any course for any reason is deemed to be a cancellation with no notice.
