All cancellations must be received in writing (email is acceptable) twenty-eight (28) calendar days before the start of the course and will be subject to an administration fee of ten percent (10%). Cancellations made after this date will be charged the full Training registration fee. Registrants who do not attend on the day(s) of the Training will be considered ‘no shows’ and will be charged the full Training registration fee. We regret that registrations cannot be transferred to another Training.
Please note, due to circumstances beyond our control, speakers, venue, content and timings may vary. We reserve the right to cancel or re-schedule a Training if necessary. Furthermore, we reserve the right to elect to hold any Training that was intended to be held via webcast or other online content delivery system instead, such as Zoom, Webex, etc. In the case of cancellation of a Training, a full refund of the fees for the cancelled Training will be made within ninety (90) days. In the event of a re-schedule, Training fees will be transferred to the new date.
