Online Purchases - Courses
When you place make a booking online with us, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your booking and containing the details of your booking. Your booking represents an offer to us to attend a course which is accepted by us when we send confirmation to you that we've allocated a space to you. That acceptance will be complete at the time we send said to you. Any courses on the same booking which we have not confirmed at that time do not form part of that contract.
Bookings must be paid for using an approved method offered online, which you are directed to complete once you place an order on the site. If you do not complete the payment process, we will normally contact you to advise you and make arrangements for payment to be made.
We reserve the right to withdraw a course without notice or explanation, and the right to cancel an booking which has already been placed. In these cases, we will offer you a full refund or an alternative date. If an alternative date does not suit you, you are entitled to a full refund or credit towards an alternative course.
You can cancel any booking which has not yet run, in which case a partial refund will be made to you. A cancellation under these terms must be made in writing to the address at the foot of this page, or by completing the Cancellation Form. Where forty five (45) clear days or more notice has been provided, you will be provided with a full refund for the course less a £25 administration charge. Where thirty (30) clear days or more notice has been provided, you will be provided with a refund of half the amount paid for the course. Where less than thirty (30) clear days notice has been provided, sadly we will be unable to provide you with a refund for your course. It is not possible to transfer the funds paid to another course that we offer, including an alternative date for the same course.
