Terms and Conditions

Booking courses

To book on a course you must first read these terms and conditions then complete the registration form, relevant to the course you wish to attend. On the form is a check box which says you agree to the terms and conditions. Having checked that box and clicked the button ‘register for course’, you are bound by these terms and conditions.

Having completed the form, you will then be taken to PayPal to make the payment. You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay for the course. All course payments must be made and cleared in advance if you wish to attend the course.

Once the payment has been completed you will be sent a confirmation email which confirms your place on the course, the time of the course and location of the venue.

 

If we cancel the Training Course, or change course content

We reserve the right to cancel a Training Course at any time, without incurring any additional liability to the Tutor or any delegate. In such circumstances, we will offer alternative dates, or a credit note.

 

Cancellation of booking

You have 14 days in which to cancel your place and a full refund will be given. Cancellation of the course must be sent by email before the relevant time limits to obtain a refund or transfer. In the event that you need to cancel or change the dates, the following charges will apply:

Cancellation after 14 days you get a 50% refund on the course fee.
If you cancel within 7 days of the course start date no refund will be given, but you can transfer to another course free of charge.
If you pay for the course within 7 days and you wish to cancel you will not receive a refund but you can transfer to another course free of charge.
You can transfer your place on the course to a substitute delegate free of charge.

The refund will be made through the original mode of payment only, less any banking charges incurred in processing the refund.

 

Course equipment and material

On the day, please bring with you a laptop or note book that can connect to the internet and be able to input a 2.0 USB flash drive (memory stick). You should also bring charging cables appropriate for your device: the laptops and note books will be used all day and failure to provide these may result in you not being able to start or complete the course. Should your device fail due to the lack of power due to not having the correct charging cables you will not be entitled to a refund.

Access details to the course website will be sent out a few days before the course starts. This information should be brought with you on the day of the course. The course materials will be given out on a 2.0 USB flash drive (memory stick) at the beginning of the day and you are free to take these away with you.

Following the course you will have 12 months access to your website area free of charge. Should you build a website in this area and wish to continue with hosting and have email added so this becomes your website for business, hobby or pastime, it can be upgraded and you will need to speak to the course Tutor about the options.

 

Attendance of the course

Delegates who attend the course must have a working knowledge of computers. This includes how to find files on their laptop or notebook and have a good understanding of word-processing (cutting and pasting text in documents). If you are unable to do this on the day of the course, you will not be able to complete the course and you will not be eligible to a refund.

Delegates are expected to arrive 20 minutes before the start of the course to register, set up their laptops or notebooks, get access codes to the WiFi and connect their devices to the WiFi. If your device does not connect to the WiFi you will not be able to complete the course.

Delegates will not be entitled to a refund if you fail to turn up on the day or leave before the end of the course.

If you turn up more than 30 minutes after the courses start time you will not get the benefit, as the course builds in steps and once started we will not be able to go over course material again as the course will not finish on time.
