Cancellations must be received in writting 21 working days prior to the start date of your course. We are able to accept an initial email but we will require confirmation by letter. Fees excluding deposits (or full payment for  2,5 and 10 day courses) are refundable if written cancellation is received at least 21 working days prior to your course start date. Failure to send a written cancellation before the balance has been paid will result in the balance becoming due.
