Cancelling a course

If you are unable to attend a course, you must cancel the booking online at least 24 hours before the course takes place.

You do this from 'cancel a booking' in My Profile and Bookings. It is not possible to cancel a course by email.

If you do not cancel the course online, you may be charged a cancellation fee. 

If you have a problem on the day and are unable to attend please call 020 7527 3116 and leave a voicemail message.

It is your responsibility to follow up any courses you have booked to avoid disappointment or incurring charges.

If we need to cancel or change courses we will contact you by email, or if time does not allow this, by phone. If we have to cancel a course you will be placed on the waiting list for the next course.

Course Certificates

After you have completed your training and the course register has been marked, you can download any applicable certificate from 'Events Attended' in My Profile and Bookings.

If the course has an online evaluation, you must complete this before the certificate becomes available.

If the course doesn't appear in your event history, the register may not yet be marked. Please allow up to 10 working days for course registers to be marked.
