Terms, Conditions and Refunds.
Payments must be received 7 days prior to the course. Once ISTQ Ltd has received the booking you are liable for payment. ISTQ Ltd reserves the right to cancel the course, for example, due to under subscription. In such circumstances a full refund of course fees will be made or a transfer to another suitable course will be offered to the delegate. No responsibility is accepted for incidental or consequential loss resulting from such a cancellation.
• Transfer to a subsequent date when the same course is running, subject to availability of places, will incur a standard fee of £15.
Changes will become effective on the date of receipt of written confirmation. Occasionally, due to circumstances beyond our control, alterations to timing and content of courses may become necessary. We therefore reserve the right to modify the course information, tutor or venue.
