Changes to Bookings – more than 8 working days from the start of your course
Outside of 8 working days from the start of Your course date We are very flexible. You may contact Us at any time to request a change of course date, change the name of the attendee or even choose to change Your course type. We will be pleased to change Your booking, subject to availability and there is no charge for this.

You may also request a refund of any monies paid, up to 8 working days of the start of the course You have booked. Please note our administration and handling charge of £15 for processing customer refunds.
A ‘late booking’ is an Order that is made less than 3 full working days before the due start date of a course. If You place an Order within this time frame, You do so on the understanding that should You wish to cancel the Order, change the Order, postpone the Order, or You do not attend the course for whatever reason You will still be liable for the full cost of Your booking.
All payments for training course Orders should be received by Us in full 30 days before the course start date unless You have an signed contract and We have agreed otherwise in writing or the Order has been placed within 30 days of the course start date, whereby payment will be due immediately at the time of the Order. Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

All amounts payable by You under the Contract are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable from time to time (VAT).
If, for whatever reason, your payment is not received by Us by the due date, the Order still stands, and payment remains outstanding. Please do not assume that if You have not paid, and subsequently do not attend the course then nothing is owed by You. This is not the case. Once You have made an Order against which We have acknowledged in writing and raised an invoice, then payment is still due in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
