Scheduled courses charged at a per person rate:
Attendance at training courses at a per person rate is subject to payment of the course fee beforehand. In the event of cancellation by delegates more than 14 days before the course date the fee will be refunded minus a cancellation charge of £10 per person. Any application for a refund must be made in writing or via e-mail. No refund will be due in the event of cancellation by delegates within 14 days of the date of the course, except at the discretion of Carolyn Barton.
For established companies, credit may be available by arrangement for a period of 30 days after the course, at the discretion of Carolyn Barton. Where credit has been arranged, in the event of cancellation by delegates notified in writing or by e-mail more than 14 days before the course a cancellation charge of £10 per person will apply. Any cancellation or non-attendance within 14 days of the date of the course will incur the full fee.
In the unlikely event of cancellation by Carolyn Barton any fees already paid will be refunded in full. Carolyn Barton will not be liable for any costs incurred by delegates. Every effort will be made to provide a course on an alternative date.
Places at courses are not transferable and may not be sold to anyone.
It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure that the course content is appropriate for their needs by referring to the content as described on this web site.
Private courses charged at a group rate:
Any agreement to provide training does not allow the client to be recognised as an accredited trainer. All accreditation remains solely with Carolyn Barton.
Advertising the course(s) is only allowed in consultation with and with the agreement of Carolyn Barton, to ensure that any advertisement accurately reflects the course(s) being offered.
The client is responsible for providing a suitable course venue and equipment as specified at the time of booking.
For companies paying the group rate, the normal maximum is 10 persons per group; more than 10 persons may be accepted by prior arrangement, but a surcharge may be made.
Payment for training courses is due within 30 days after the course and shall include reimbursement of receipted travel and subsistence costs. In accordance with legislation, late payments may incur statutory interest plus a debt recovery fee at the rates current at the time when the payment was due.
The course may be cancelled by the client upon notification to Carolyn Barton by telephone, in writing or by e-mail. The course shall not be deemed to be cancelled until receipt of such notification by Carolyn Barton. If the course is cancelled by the client more than 3 days prior to the start of the course there will be no liability to pay any course fees but any expenses (or commitment thereto) incurred by Carolyn Barton prior to cancellation shall be paid by the client. In the event of cancellation by the client 3 days or less prior to the start of the course the client will be liable to pay the full fee together with any expenses (or commitment thereto) incurred by Carolyn Barton prior to cancellation; transfer to another date is possible subject to availability but any costs incurred therein shall be paid by the client.
In the event of unforeseen circumstances (e.g. delayed or cancelled flights) preventing the course from running, any expenses (or commitment thereto) incurred by Carolyn Barton shall be paid by the client.
In the unlikely event of cancellation by Carolyn Barton refunds will be limited to course fees already paid. Carolyn Barton will not be liable for any costs incurred by delegates or clients. Every effort will be made to provide a course on a suitable alternative date.
Places at courses are not to be sold by the client to anyone for profit; the client may only recover a share of the costs from course delegates.
It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that the course content is appropriate for their needs by referring to the content as described on this web site. Any requests for variations from the standard content should be made in writing to Carolyn Barton prior to booking.
