It is possible to cancel (only in writing and with submission of bank details) free of charge up to 7 days before the start of the event, but after this the full course fee will be due for payment, and you will have no claim to reimbursement. Likewise, if you fail to turn up or if you cancel on the day of the event, the full participation fee will be due for payment. In the event of illness or an accident the course fee will be refunded, provided that a medical certificate is presented. If participants drop out of the course then there will be no reimbursement of the course fees.
