We amend these Terms from time to time. Every time you wish to book a course, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms which will apply at that time.
If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by phone, text, e-mail or by pre-paid post to the address you provide to us when booking.

3. COURSE CONTENT
We will endeavour to cover all the content outlined in the course information with reasonable skill and care and in accordance with practices consistent with the professional standards in the industry, but we accept no liability for failure to cover all or any part of that content, and reserve the right to vary the course content at any time.
Nothing contained in the course information or in our advertising material relating to the course shall constitute a representation, condition or warranty by us that you will achieve any objectives stated or otherwise achieve a particular level of knowledge or competence.
You acknowledge that opinions expressed by our course providers are those of the individual providers and not necessarily ours.
4. CANCELLATIONS AND AMENDMENTS
We reserve the right to cancel a course in the event that the relevant individual trainer is unavailable due to illness or any other unforeseen circumstances, if there are insufficient bookings, or for any other reason which is beyond our reasonable control. In this situation every effort will be made to reschedule the course and if this cannot be done, we will refund the course fees in full. No payments will be made for your travel, accommodation, or administrative costs incurred as a result of any cancellation or rescheduling.
You may cancel your booking on a minimum of 28 days’ notice before the course date by emailing us within 24 hours of placing your booking, providing details of your course booking and notifying us of your cancellation. After this point, and unless notice is given within 24 hours of you placing your booking, if you cancel or are unable to attend a course for any reason (including travel disruption, illness, or any other reasons outside of your control), no refunds will be issued.
You may amend your booking to a different course date on a minimum of 28 days’ notice by emailing us. If less than 28 days’ notice is provided there is a £75 charge to change your course date (unless, at our sole discretion, you provide a valid medical note or other evidence of good reason for your inability to attend). You may only change your course date once, after which if you are unable to attend your booking will be cancelled and no refund will be provided.
If you fail to attend a course without any notice you will not be able to transfer to an alternative course and no refund will be given.
To appoint an alternative attendee, please email us with details of your course booking and the alternative attendee and the reason you cannot attend. Transfers of bookings to alternative attendees are only permitted at our sole discretion.
