For public and in-house training, fees or a purchase order are due 21 days in advance of course commencement to secure your booking. Where more than one course is booked, full payment for all courses is payable 21 working days in advance of the commencement of the first course. Where payment is not received by course start date then we have the right to refuse the delegate(s) entry to the course. In these circumstances, the invoice in question will remain payable in full. Payment can be made by PayPal, credit card, debit card, direct funds transfer or cheque (please allow time for clearance 21 days prior to course commencement).

Transfers to alternate dates with notice in writing of no less than 21 days will be accommodated where possible at no charge. Booking changes and substitutions can be accommodated with less than 21 days notice and will incur a 10% administration fee. Cancellations with less than 21 days notice will be at full cost. No transfers or refunds are permitted within 14 days of course commencement date; however the provision of a substitute attendee is permitted and is subject to a 10% administration fee. Cancellations, refunds, transfers and alternate date changes are not available on special offers and discounted courses.
