Booking fees and Payment

A non refundable 50% booking fee is required for each training course; the amounts are detailed with each course.  All courses are subject to price increases, please check prior to booking.  This booking fee secures your place and booking, your booking will not be taken or confirmed without a booking fee. The booking fee and remaining payment can be made by prior bank transfer, cash or card payment. This booking fee is non-refundable but can be transferred with notice to the same course only from an event held in Warwick.  You can default on this three times before the booking fee is lost and you will be required to pay the full training cost. This transfer must be booked within 6 months of the original date and will not be redeemable after this period. This payment will also be subject to any price increases in this time and the additional amount will be payable. If you have paid for your course in full in advance, this is also non refundable and should you decide not to continue with your course at any date a refund will not be granted. The remaining balance will be due two weeks prior to commencement of the course and four weeks prior to commencement for courses hosted at other venues. If you book your place after this time frame, full payment will be due at the time of booking, which will be non refundable but as above, is transferrable with a minimum of 72 hours notice in Warwick only.

Please ensure prompt payment of the remaining balance to avoid late payment fees being charged. If cancellation is made, we reserve the right to charge the course booking fee in full. In the event of a cancellation of the course by the academy due to unforeseen emergency circumstances, your place will be automatically transferred to the next available or suitable date for yourself. Please note, all courses will run regardless of the amount of students booked and will not be cancelled if the class hasn’t a minimum amount of students booked.  All course pricing is subject to change, please check prior to booking.
