In consideration of the agreements made herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, each party shall agree as follows:
For the purposes of these terms:
Headings, Number and Gender. The headings of sections and paragraphs are inserted for convenience only and shall not be deemed to constitute part of this agreement or to affect the construction thereof. The use in this agreement of singular, plural, masculine, feminine and neuter pronouns shall include the others as the context may require.
‘ We’ and ‘us’ means the training provider of the training/services given to you.
‘You’ means the student receiving the services.
‘Course’ means an attendance or home study portions of a course or any part of a course designed and developed by us including all revisions and updates to such course as we may make from time to time.
‘Course Materials’ means the physical materials relating to any one course, together with all revisions and updates made by us from time to time, which may be in any format and which are required by the student to complete the course. The words are used for overview purposes therefore you will only receive course material relevant to your course and not all course materials listed.
2. Responsibility for Course Materials
We affirm that the course materials will meet a satisfactory level of quality however; we do not affirm that they will be error free and we have the right to substitute reading material/books/manuals provided.
You will be responsible for inspecting the course materials as soon as is reasonably possible following issue or delivery. Furthermore, you will be responsible for informing us about any oversights as soon as possible.
If you lose or damage your course materials and need replacement these will attract nominal charge.
3. Absence from a course
If you are intending to take leave from your attendance course for a known period of time you must notify us as soon as is possible. If you fail to notify us, continuation of your course will be at our discretion. All attendance courses are built upon the previous sessions work, so all work must be covered. Depending on the course – you maybe required to either have additional work set on top of the usual course homework, and/or if required , to repeat the missed section of the course on a later course date. However we will work with you to resolve the issue in the best practice.
Absence due to occasional illness will not carry any additional charges but missed hours will need to be clawed back.
4. Cancellation and Refunds
According to the Distance Selling Regulations 2000, you have a cooling off period of ten working days. This period allows you an unconditional right to cancel.
You will be required to make such a request in writing to us and at your cost return any received materials in an unused condition. We are allowed to make deductions for damaged or used materials. If DVD’s and CD’s have been sent they will not be accepted as a return and a universal dvd/cd cost will be deducted from the refund.
Cancellation by telephone is not accepted – other than to notify us that official cancellation documentation is being compiled/sent. Cancellation must be received by us in the form of email AND in writing by post . We suggest you send written confirmation regarding cancellation by recorded delivery for your own record.
It is now our policy that documents or materials are only dispatched after the ten day cooling off period has elapsed. Home Study/Course Materials that need to be posted will be dispatched within five working days of the final invoice being paid. This still gives you ample time to complete the relevant amount of pre attendance study, tasking and written assignments that maybe pertinent to your course.
After the 10 day cooling off period you have no automatic right to a refund. If you decide you do not wish to attend the course after the 10 day cooling off period we will allow you to transfer to another course or consider allowing you to transfer the course to a third party less the cancellation/administration charge. (see section 5).
Should you decide you no longer wish to attend a course (for whatever reason), after the 10 day cooling off period you will are not entitled to a refund of the deposit or fees already paid.
5. Transferring a Course
We retain the sole discretion concerning whether a course may be transferred from you to a third party. Any such request must be made to us in writing. We will treat all justifiable requests as compassionately as possible but we cannot guarantee this due to allocated place numbers.
If we agree to allow you to transfer to another course, the total fees paid will be offset against the cost of the new course. However we will require that should the new course be more expensive, the person you are transferring the course to, will need to confirm in writing that they are aware of, and accept the course price increase. There will be a standard £100 administration charge on all courses transfers. It the person you were hoping to transfer the course to declines to accept the course price increase (if applicable) then your booking will revert back to cancellation procedures as stated in section 4.
6. Practical Training
The topics covered during the practical training will be as close to as possible as those stated on the website, however if we are obliged to make any minor changes to your practical training we reserve the right to do so.The topics on the website are examples of topics covered in certain courses, they may or may not be relevant to your particular course. Topics may also be covered in general terms rather than having sessions dedicated to them, this is because further reading/home work/tasking and CPD expects you to enhance your learning after time in the classroom and/or certification.
Course daily start and end times can vary according to course,module and progress, with this in mind daily start and end times may be shortened or lengthened according to training delivery need.
