Please note online and flexible learning courses commence on the same day the enrolment form is successfully completed and returned to head office, hence legal rights to cancel within a fourteen working-day period out laid in the distance selling act are void. Full Time courses commence on set days and times and course refunds are only applicable within the first seven days of the successful return of the enrolment form. If you attend a Full Time Course within those seven days, the course refund will be void in coherence to distance selling law.

The cancellation fee for flexible learning and Full Time students is £350 to cover additional tutor costs irrespective if they have had a face to face meeting or not. Cancellations will not be accepted if there are outstanding charges due or monthly payment plan monies owed. Cancellations MUST be put into writing and addressed to the accounts department.

4.5) Bookings for the combination packages for example, level 2 gym instructing and level 3 personal training course will be treated as a single course.

If a student has purchased a package consisting of multiple courses e.g. level 2 gym instructing and level 3 personal training, they will still have to adhere to the 24-month time frame each time a new level commences to get all those qualifications ascertained.
