Terms and Conditions of Course Bookings
Payment of a deposit will secure your place on a course. Once your deposit is received you will be sent full details of the location, times and other information you will need regarding the course. Full payment is then due one month before the workshop begins.
If you are unable to attend a course you have booked onto, the deposit, or full fee if you have paid it, is refundable until 30 days prior to the workshop, minus an admin charge of £50. Thereafter, up until the day before the workshop, a £100 admin fee will apply. If you do not make it to the course or leave during it, any refunds are at the discretion of the Upledger Institute UK. All cancellation notices must be received in writing or email. Cancellation policies vary for advanced classes (and typically are non-refunable unless we are able to resell your place), as well as any that are privately sponsored. Please call for specific queries.
Alternatively, the deposit or full payment can be transferred to another course subject to availability. In most instances these will not be subject to an admin fee the first time, unless very late notice, further transfers may incur an admin fee as above. For advanced classes an admin fee will still be charged due to the work involved in filling the place.
Should we have to cancel a course you will receive a refund or credit note (whichever you prefer) for the full amount of fees paid. In the unlikely event of this occuring we are sorry, but we are not liable for any expenses incurred in preparing to attend the course. However, as much notice and consideration as possible will be given.
Within the booking process it is stated that it is expected that you are a qualified healthcare practitioer and that any doubts about this should be raised with the office before booking. If this has not been done then the Upledger Institute UK is not liable for any misunderstandings or expenses that have occured.
Should the price of courses change you will be given plenty of advanced warning to secure a course at the previously agreed price.
Additional Terms and Conditions for the Core Pack or staged payments
If you change your mind at any point in the programme you will be liable only for the Core Pack deposit and the cost of any classes you have taken up until that point. If you have not fully paid for a class you will be additionally liable for that remaining balance at the courses usual cost. We will refund you any extra payments you have made less a £50 admin fee.
You are not committed to particular course dates and if you reserve a place on one you are free to change it within one month of its start date with no extra charge. Depending on circumstances there may be a small administrative fee if you need to change last minute.
There is no a time limit for completing these four courses, and we guarantee no price increases for 3 years. if there are courses remaining after that length of time and if prices of general courses have increased there may be a small addiional increase to cover that change. We will give you advanced warning of this however.
NB: To qualify as a CranioSacral Therapist you will also have to do the Advanced course after the first four courses and become a member of the CSS.
Staged Payments: this works in the same way as usual payments. If you want to transfer to a different course you can do so at no extra cost, unless it is within 30 days of the courses start date in whcih case there may be a small fee depending on how late it is; if you wish to be refunded for a course you are unable to attend we will refund all the paymetns you have made to that point less a £50 admin fee.
