Process your Payment

You will receive a 'Course Booking & Invoice' email after you have placed your booking which will include the payment details for your training.

Booking Confirmed

Upon receipt of your payment, your booking will be confirmed.


We will send you a pre-training email and the link to join the training the day before your training date.
When you receive a course confirmation from us this means we exclusively reserve a place for you in our class which has limited space. If a trainee cannot attend on their booked day, we will do our best to slot you into another class but we cannot guarantee a space as our classes do get booked out in advance. Requesting a new training date or postponement is not deemed to be a new booking. It is simply a postponement and done in good faith. Any cancellations/refund requests relating to this will be based on the original booking date, and apply as per our terms and conditions.
