The course fee must be paid in full prior to the start of the course (please bring confirmation of payment with you on the first day!). Full payment gives you the right to take part in the above course, and your registration shall be considered binding. The selected course dates are subject to available space, and you will receive our confirmation within two working days.
If you withdraw from a course you have registered for prior to its start, we keep 30% of the course fee as a cancellation charge. In the event that you paid a discounted course fee (due to a special offer, package deal, etc.) and cancel your registration for one of the courses, the discount will be rescinded for all courses. To calculate the amount of the course fee that may potentially be refunded to you when you cancel on time, we will offset the amount you paid with the full regular price of each course and all applicable cancellation costs. Not showing up for a course without cancelling ahead of time, or withdrawing from a course that is in progress, does not entitle you to a refund, nor does it relieve you of your obligation to pay the full course fee. In the event that a course must be re-scheduled due to technical reasons, or due to a lack of sufficient participants, your registration will apply for the re-scheduled course. If you cannot attend on the re-scheduled dates, you may opt to do the course when it is next offered.
100% attendance is mandatory to receive your course confirmation!
By registering for a course, you confirm that you understand the course requirements and agree to abide by them.
