Fee Guidance

All of our course fees are inclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate and are published on our website/brochures.  Unless otherwise stated, all course fees include course materials, tuition and refreshments as stated within the course details.

Special Requirements

As a fully inclusive organisation, we ensure that learners who are wheelchair users or learners with a disability are given additional support as appropriate for the course. Our team will make every effort to accommodate special requirements that we have been notified of during the booking process.

Vouchers

All vouchers expire 12 months from their date of issue, unless otherwise stipulated on the voucher, are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Vouchers can only be used once and for the full value for the specific course stated upon issue. There is a limit of one voucher per booking or purchase and redeemed for the same currency as stated on that voucher.

Vouchers cannot be reused, even if you cancel your booking or payment or used in combination with any other promotions/offers or exchanged for cash.

We have the right to amend the voucher terms and conditions and/or discontinue a voucher at any time without affecting your statutory rights as well as being able to refuse a voucher in payment or part payment of any item where we reasonably suspect that the voucher may have been stolen, tampered with, duplicated or obtained in an illegal way.

If a learner/client is given a “free space” on a training course as part of an offer or package (i.e., Buy One Get One Free) and fails to pay the agreed amount by the due date, the “free space” will no longer be valid.

We reserve the right to cancel any “free spaces” if payment and payment cleared funds are not received by the agreed due date.  We also reserve the right to change the time period given. If this period is shorter than that previously stated, we will inform you giving reasonable and sufficient notice for an earlier payment to be made.

Delivery of Your Products

We will despatch your products in a timely manner as indicated within our quotation and as reasonably practicable following our confirmation of your order and receipt of cleared funds.  The products will be sent to the address you provided when placing your order, together with the contact name and telephone number you provided during the purchasing process.

Each delivery consignment will contain a delivery note detailing:

  • order date
  • order reference number
  • the type and quantity of products
  • any storage instructions (if applicable)

All delivery dates are approximate, and time of delivery is not of the essence. However, we will endeavour to notify you of the exact shipping details in advance once your delivery has been collected from our premises.

Once the products are despatched, we are no longer responsible for any issues with delivery couriers/companies or for any additional shipping charges or taxes.

We are allowed to increase the price, by giving you written notice of an increase up to two days before we despatch the products to take into account any of the following:

  • factors beyond our control (examples include tax changes, foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in the costs of labour, manufacturing, and/or materials etc);
  • changes in delivery dates, or quantities, types, or specifications of Products that you have asked for;
  • delay caused by you, and/or you supplying us with inadequate or inaccurate instructions.

If we fail to deliver the products, our liability will be limited to your costs of obtaining replacements of similar type and quality at the cheapest available price, less the price of the products.

We will not be liable for non-delivery if you give us inadequate delivery or other supply instructions.

We are allowed to deliver the products in instalments. If we do this, each instalment will make up a separate contract with its own invoice and payment arrangements. If an instalment is delayed, you may not cancel other instalments because of the delay.

Product Warranty

It is important to us that you are satisfied with the quality of the products that we have provided to you, therefore where the products are found to be defective, we will endeavour to replace defective products free of charge within the manufacturer’s warranty period if acceptable from the date of delivery, subject to the following conditions;

  • you notify us in writing immediately upon the defect becoming apparent;
  • the defect being due to faulty design, materials or workmanship;
  • given us a reasonable opportunity of examining the products, and
  • any products to be repaired or replaced to be returned to us at your expense.

Products that are manufactured and supplied to us by a third party, any warranty granted to us in respect of the products will be passed onto you and that you will not have any other remedy against us.

We are entitled, in our absolute discretion, to refund the price of the defective products in the event that the relevant invoice has already been paid to us in cleared funds.

Additionally, the manufacturer’s warranty does not apply if:

  • you continue to use the products after you have given us written notice of a defect;
  • the defect has arisen because you have failed to follow any written or oral instructions on the use, storage, installation, or maintenance of the product/s;
  • the defect arises because we followed your instructions, specifications, drawing or design;
  • you altered or repaired the products without previously obtaining our written consent;
  • the defect is a result of fair wear and tear, negligence, abnormal storage or working conditions, or wilful damage;
  • changes have been made to the products to comply with applicable regulations

For the purpose of any claim by you, the time of delivery is not an essence. All times / dates quoted are approximate and may vary. We will not accept any claim for any loss or damage, or any consequential loss or damage arising from delayed dispatch or delivery.

All warranties are non-transferable; the warranty is only available to you as the original purchaser of the unit from us.

Please note that Sections 13-15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are excluded to the extent that the law permits.

In respect of international orders of products or product services (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes any order to be delivered outside the United Kingdom), we will assist with warranty claims. However, it is important that you acknowledge that the warranty may be locked in to the particular region in which you are located, and you may be required to work with a local repair centre in order to remedy the defect in the products.

Ownership, Risk and Delivery of Products

We draw to your attention that the risk in the products passes with delivery which means that we are responsible for any damage to the product before they are collected by you or we hand the products to an independent carrier.  For the avoidance of doubt, the risk passes to you, at the point of handover to you or an independent carrier.  This means if the products are damaged or lost on the journey, you will need to claim the loss back from the carrier whilst paying us in accordance with our agreed terms.

We therefore recommend that you have insurance for these products from the time that they are despatched to you.

Until such time as you own the products you will keep them separate from any other products you may own or have in your possession so that they can be readily identified as belonging to us. You will also ensure that they are properly stored, protected and insured (ensuring that our interest in the products is noted on the policy).  If you receive any insurance money for the products, you must hold it for us separately and not mix it with any other money.

Additionally, you should not remove or obscure any identifying mark or packaging and provide us with any information about the products that we ask for until such time as you are the legal owner.

Retention of Title of Products

We draw to your attention that we will remain the legal owner of the products until we are in receipt of cleared funds in our bank account, even if we have agreed a credit period as per our quotation and invoice.  It is therefore important that you pay for them on or before the due date.

Should we not receive payment on or before the due date, or if we believe that you are in financial difficulties including any insolvency proceedings commenced against you, we have the right to:

  • collect our products from your premises.
  • enter your premises to take back the products.
  • take back and resell the products

Please note that you will not be the owner of the products until you have paid ‘all monies’ owed to us. This means that if we have sold the products in batches/instalments/deliveries, each batch/instalment/delivery will belong to us until you have paid for the recent batch/instalment/delivery and that all the products previously delivered. If you fail to pay us, we will take back enough of our products from any of the previous batches/instalments/deliveries to pay the amount outstanding.

  • you only affix or connect other items to the equipment where such affixation does not exceed the design limitations of the equipment and is not likely to damage it in any way;

  • all equipment which uses consumables such as batteries, fuel cells or storage cards of whatever nature must only be used with official consumables (that is, those produced or recommended by the manufacturer) or such other products as provided by, or authorised by, us;
  • all electrical equipment must only be used with the voltage specific to that piece of Equipment;

For the avoidance of doubt, whilst the equipment is on hire to you, in no circumstances are you to take the equipment to a country advised by the UK Government Foreign Office as being not suitable for any travel or any non-essential travel (as published on the UK Government Foreign Travel advice website.)

Maintenance and Repair of Equipment

You will, at your own expense, keep the equipment in good repair, appearance and condition, normal and reasonable wear excepted.  You will maintain the hired equipment to the standards specified by the relevant manufacturers and will supply all parts that are necessary to keep the equipment in good repair, appearance and condition, normal wear and tear excepted.

Only official parts (that is, those produced or recommended by the manufacturer of that particular piece of equipment) are to be used for maintenance and repair work. All equipment will be fully inspected, cleaned and (where necessary) maintained prior to each equipment hire agreement.

You should not attempt to make any repairs to the equipment without obtaining our prior written consent. When you contact us regarding a potential repair, we have option of replacing the equipment, repairing the equipment in house or granting you permission to make the necessary repairs. The cost of such replacement or repairs is the responsibility of either you or us, depending on the reasons for the replacement or repairs following our investigations and determined by us.

If parts require replacement during the hire contract, we have the option of supplying such parts to you or supplying replacement equipment or a suitable substitute (that is, equipment capable of performing the same tasks as that which it replaces). These parts and/or substitutes provided will be replaced free of charge by us, provided that the replacement is necessitated by nothing more than normal wear and tear.

Any additional damage may result in you being charged for the cost of replacement parts, associated labour, and/or the cost of providing substitute equipment.

If the equipment is not in good repair, appearance and condition when it is returned to us, we will make such repairs or arrange for repairs to be made as necessary to put the equipment in a state of good repair, appearance and condition, normal and reasonable wear and tear excepted.  We will make these repairs within a reasonable time of receiving the equipment and will provide you with written notice and invoice for such repairs.  Upon receipt of our invoices covering the repairs, you are to immediately reimburse us for the actual expense of the repairs.

Collection, Hire & Return

You are able to collect the equipment from the agreed collection point, which is usually our Head Office, provided that we are in receipt of cleared funds together with your fulfilment of any insurance requirements as set out within these Terms and Conditions.   Alternatively, if the equipment is to be delivered to you, we will arrange for an insured courier to collect the equipment on the day prior to hire commencement date.  Normally the equipment should be with you by 10:30 hours on the following working day for addresses within the UK mainland, whilst other areas may take additional time.  The courier service timing and costs will be advised to you during the hire quotation process.

All delivery dates are approximate, and time of delivery is not of the essence. However, we will endeavour to notify you of the exact shipping details in advance once your delivery has been collected from our Company’s premises.

We will endeavour to ensure that the equipment is ready for collection, or despatch at the start of the hire term.  In the event that we are unable to provide the equipment at the hire commencement date, we will deliver the equipment to you at the earliest possible date at our expense.  The total hire fees payable by you will be adjusted accordingly to reflect the non-availability of the equipment.  Please note that we will not be liable for non-delivery or collection if you give us inadequate or inaccurate instructions.

Once the equipment is despatched, we are no longer responsible for any issues with delivery couriers/companies or for any additional shipping charges or taxes.

At the end of the hire, on the agreed date you are responsible to return the equipment to us at the agreed premises, or have arranged collection by our courier on the last day of your hire period.

If for any reason you are late in returning the equipment to us, we will charge you for each additional day’s hire at the normal daily rate for that equipment and the hire period will be extended until the equipment is returned.

Loss or Damage to the Equipment

You are responsible for the safekeeping of the equipment throughout the hire period and are be liable to us for all loss of or damage to the equipment how so ever caused.

You must notify the company of any loss or damage to any equipment on hire immediately of such loss or damage being sustained.

If any equipment is not returned for any reason, or is damaged on return, for the avoidance of doubt the equipment will be charged for at the replacement value along with a surcharge of an additional days hire to cover admin costs and the time this equipment is not available for rehire. If equipment has to be sent for repair the item, or items, will be shipped to the manufacturer for repair and remain on hire until the equipment can be returned repaired.
