Please note that when you make a booking either online or over the phone it means you have asked us to reserve a place on one or more set course dates. We have agreed to hold this for you for a fair and reasonable amount of time to allow you to process a payment either by debit/credit card or bank transfer.
Full payment must be made on receipt of invoice and prior to the course date if not already paid at the time of booking. Should you require your invoice to be paid by bank transfer, full payment to reach us within 48 hours of the date shown on your pro forma invoice to secure your place on your preferred course date(s). Under no circumstances will training be delivered unless payment is made prior to the date of the course.
When booking online payment can be made by debit/credit card or Paypal and bank details are also listed, should you wish to pay by bank transfer. When booking over the phone payment can be taken by debit/credit card.
Q: Why do we require full payment in advance?
A: This is a common question. The simplest explanation is to liken it to booking a place on a flight: there are only a limited number of places available. Once we allocate that spot, we cannot take another booking for that place. So in same way as an airline requires payment to confirm you will be on a particular flight, we too need to know well in advance to ensure that we know exactly how many places are available left to fill and to avoid overbooking. Our courses frequently book up a month or more in advance.
Q: What should I do before I make payment?
A: You need to check the invoice for the course title(s), location and date(s) to make sure these are what you requested. Any discrepancies, please call the office right away. Errors are rare, but we are human after all!
Q: What happens after I make payment?
A: We suggest that you drop a quick email to email@example.com to advise your payment has been sent. Please always reference your invoice number to help us locate your payment and deal with your enquiry ASAP.
Once your payment is received at our end we will issue you with a VAT invoice and full joining instructions. This will tell you what time your course starts & finishes, what to wear and bring with you as well as advice on local accommodation and directions.
Entry for Assessments & Issue of Certificates
Candidates will only be entered for assessments once we have received full payment for the course, if the deadline for entry is missed due to late payment we take no responsibility for later assessment entrance.
We do not issue any certificates ourselves that are externally certified. We submit your results to the certifying body for certification and have no influence over how quickly certificates are issued. Some certificates are taking longer to arrive than normal due the massive increase in demand. Once certificates are released to us we send them directly to the address of the person or company that booked & paid for the course. Some certifying bodies, such as BPEC, send certificates directly to the delegate and are not sent to us at GRE Training Ltd.
If you lose your certificate, replacement certificates can usually be arranged, but please be aware the administration charges will need to be paid. These vary depending on the certifying body but are typically £50 – £75 + VAT.
Terms & Conditions of Booking
Effective for all transactions from 12th Nov. 2012 onwards. (A current copy of terms and conditions is issued with your invoice.)
Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 do not apply as this is a business to business transaction. (i.e. You are not a consumer, you are purchasing a service for the benefit and use of a business). However, we take a common sense approach and has applied similar cancellation terms and a “cooling off” period once a booking has been made.
CANCELLATION REQUESTS CAN ONLY BE ACKNOWLEDGED AS RECEIVED WHEN MADE IN WRITING TO firstname.lastname@example.org and to the Chesterfield address below.
“Cooling off period”
From the time your booking is received (e.g. by phone or email) you have 48 hours in which if you need to cancel your booking you will receive a full “no quibble” refund. Outside of this time, your cancellation will be treated as laid out below.
Please remember, there are only a finite number of spaces available on each course; once a place has been booked we cannot offer that space to another candidate. We plan and allocate our trainer resources based on bookings made. Cancellations happen sometimes and it is our duty as a responsible training provider to make you aware that we reserve the right to charge if you cancel a booking.
A booking is considered as each place on a course that has been booked. (Group bookings/day rate bookings are considered to have 10 places.)
All charges based on dates shown on original invoice.
Example shown here is based on booking made at midday on 1st of the month.
– Less than 48 hours since booking = £0 (if written/email cancellation request received before midday on 3rd of the month)
– 48 hours or more days since booking = 100% charge (i.e. if written/email cancellation request received after midday on 3rd of the month)
– Suitable substitute candidate notified to us at any time. = £0
– Up to 14 days before course start date: Request to move booking onto an alternative date = £0 (if paid in full, deposits will be retained by us otherwise. First time requests only, subsequent requests will incur full cancellation fee.)
GRE Training Ltd reserves the right to cancel any course or venue. In this case an alternative date and/or course will be offered. If you have any questions that have not been addressed, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look for to seeing you and/or your candidates on the course.
