How to Apply

 

To apply to attend a course, send us an e-mail or use the contact form. Please be sure to specify the course, dates and locations that you desire, as well as appropriate contact details.

We will reply to inform you about the availability of spaces, other information as relevant, including payment details.

To reserve a place, payment of a non-refundable deposit is required. This guarantees you a provisional place, that will be confirmed when final payment is made according to the general Terms and Conditions.

Payment can be made either by bank transfer or using the PayPal button on this website. VAT will be added as required. Invoices will be sent for all payments received.

Day-to-Day Course Logistics

 

Your computer. You must bring your own computer, with power cables, adaptors, and relevant software loaded (Excel 2016 or later version is required for all courses). Please also bring any required charging cables, international power adaptors, pens, paper etc. If a course requires additional software to be installed, this will be indicated in the course documentation (or e-mails) that you will receive prior to the course. Please also bring your course confirmation e-mail or documentation, as well as proof of identification.

Course Timing and Breaks. Unless stated to the contrary in e-mail documentation that you are sent, the course times are 9.15 to 16.45 each day. There is a 15-minute break in the morning and afternoon (approximately 10.45 to 11.00 am and 15.00 to 15.15), and a one-hour lunch break (approximately 12.30 to 13.30).

Finding the Specific Course Location. The course address within a city may vary from course to course. It will be shared about 10 days ahead of the course to participants with a validated place (subject to our having received final payment of course fees)

Your Arrival Time. You should arrive at the course premises 15-20 minutes before the course start time in order to sign-in, find the training room, and set up your computer and workspace, and so on.

Dress Code. The dress code is business casual.

Course Materials. Course Materials will include files that will need to be downloaded prior to the course and will be sent by e-mail shortly beforehand. Such materials are copyright and protected by intellectual property rights; as such they are to be used only for the purposes of the course, and by the participant only (including after the course). However, they are not allowed to be copied nor shared in any format.

Pre-reading, Study or Preparation of Content. In general, course modules are self-contained, so no pre-reading is required. However, it is necessary for you to satisfy the prerequisites for each. There are no prerequisites for Module A. The other modules (i.e. B, C and D) require a solid knowledge of the content of Module A.

Refreshments. Standard refreshments (tea, coffee, water) will be available regularly. Meals are not provided unless otherwise explicitly stated in writing.

Overnight Accommodation, Travel etc. You are responsible for reserving and paying for any required overnight accommodation, as well as for all necessary travel arrangements.

Cancellations

 

Participant-Driven Changes: Cancellation, Changes to Dates and Courses, and Transfer to Others.

You can cancel your place up to 12 working days before the course start date (by confirmed e-mail receipt). We will provide a refund of any amounts paid, except for the minimum deposit (refunds will be net of bank charges or other transaction fees).

You can transfer your reservation to a different course (including location and date changes), providing that this is done at least 60 days prior to the earliest affected course. Changes are not possible if the time-window to the first affected course is less than 60 days.

A validated course place may be transferred to another nominated party, provided notification has been received and conformed by e-mail at least 24 hours prior to the course start.

Changes or Cancellations by Course Organiser. We reserve the right to cancel a course at any time, including for exceptional reasons, such as the ill health of an instructor, or other reasonable reasons beyond our control. In such cases, participants with a validated place will have an option either to obtain a refund of the amounts paid, or to use the amount paid as payment towards any another course. We reserve the right to change the specific location of the course (e.g. the business centre or hotel, but not the city itself) at any time.

Terms and Conditions

 

  1. Provisional Reservation and Deposit Payment. A place can be provisionally reserved on a course only by contacting us. The provisional reservation is valid only once a deposit payment has been made. The minimum deposit is 10% of the course fee plus applicable VAT and is non-refundable (unless the course is cancelled for exceptional reasons by the organiser). Full payment can also be made at this point, if desired for administrative reasons (in this case, refunds are possible as per below).
  2. Validation of a Confirmed Place and Final Payment. A potential participant has a validated course place only once final payment has been received and confirmed by e-mail. The final payment (net of any deposit paid) is due at least 12 working days before the course start date. Failure to make the final payment in a full and timely manner will result in the course reservation being forfeited, and the deposit lost. (The potential late payment of one or more participants may lead to the course being cancelled or moved to a smaller facility).
  3. Invoicing, VAT and Payment Mechanisms. Payment can be made either by bank transfer or using the PayPal button on this website. VAT will be added as required. Invoices will be sent for all payments received.
  4. Location and Specific Location.

The specific location will be in a business centre, meeting room, or dedicated training centre at that location. The planned specific location and course times will be shared with participants who have a validated place.
  5. Meeting Room and Refreshments. The course organiser will be responsible for organising the provision of the meeting facilities (room, tables, projector) and of standard refreshments (tea, coffee, water). Meals are not provided unless otherwise explicitly stated in writing.

  10. Cancellation.

In this case, a refund of the amounts paid above the minimum deposit will be provided (net of bank charges or other transaction fees),
  11. Course or Date Transfer.
