Booking for scheduled courses are made subject to the following terms and conditions.
S1. Course Booking
You can place a booking through the on-line booking form, phone or e-mail subject to all information required being provided. All places will be provisional until payment is received.
S2. Provisional Bookings
A provisional booking will be taken while awaiting payment for the place on the course. A provisional booking will be held for a maximum of 14 calendar days, but does not guarantee a place on a course. Bookings with full payment will have priority over provisional bookings.
S3. Payment Terms
Our standard payment terms require full payment for a place to be confirmed onto a scheduled course, unless otherwise agreed.
S4. Payment Method
Companies will be invoiced for their place with 14 calendar days to pay and therefore confirm the place, but are subject to point S2.
Individuals can be invoiced with 14 calendar days to pay or pay by credit card through iZettle.
The payment method must be defined at time of booking.
In circumstances where you may not be able to make a course you can transfer your place to another course within 6 months subject to the following charges.
- First transfer made more than 4 weeks from course, no charge.
- First transfer made less than 4 weeks from the course will incur a 20% charge.
- Any additional transfers, 40% course fee.
If circumstances mean you cannot attend the course or transfer your course to another date, you can cancel your place with the following charges.

- Less than four weeks’ notice prior to the course will incur full course fee
- Places previously transferred, no matter the notice period will incur full fee
The cancellation of a place on a course should be notified as soon as possible and must be confirmed in writing by e-mail.
S7. Distance selling regulations
When placing a booking as a consumer, you have 14 working days from the day you place the booking to review your booking and change your mind. You need to notify Dewi Development as soon as possible and confirm your change of mind by e-mail.
When a course is within 14 working days of your booking, your time to change your mind ends at 17:00 the day before the course.
If you book a course on behalf of your business, you will be treated as a non-consumer and statutory consumer protection will not apply to this agreement.
If you do not attend the course and you have not previously informed us in writing by post or e-mail that you will not be attending, the full fee will still be liable and non-refundable.
S9. Late attendance / Missed Sessions
Accredited courses have minimum learning time which all students must achieve to meet the qualification requirements. If you do not attend all sessions, you will not be able to achieve the accredited course and the full fee will still be liable and there will be no refunds.
If you arrive late for a session or miss a session, we reserve the right not to accept you onto the remainder of the course, where we deem it not possible to make up the content or the learning hours. If we refuse you onto the remainder of the course, the full fee will still be liable and will be non-refundable.
S10. Unable to complete assessments
Accredited courses have set criteria that must be achieved by students in order to pass the course. Some courses have practical activities that must be achieved and require a certain level of physical fitness. If you are unable to carry out the assessment, we will not be able to award you an accredited certificate. In these circumstances the full fee will still be due and non-refundable.
S11. Learning support needs
Where there are learning support needs or physical adaptions, we should be notified in advance of the course and we will take reasonably practical actions to support you through the course. Where we are not notified until the start of the course, we will have limited resource available to make adaptions.
If you have concerns as to how learning support needs will affect your attendance on a course, these should be discussed with us prior to or on booking. Once you arrive at the course, we cannot refund you for your place if you decide the course is not suitable and you have not previously discussed your concerns with us.
We will support candidates with learning support needs or physical adaptions to achieve assessments, through additional aids or finding methods that suit you. However, we cannot change the requirements of the assessment.
For further information on reasonable adjustments for assessments, please see the FAA Reasonable Adjustment policy we adhere to.
Certificates will be issued on successful completion of all learning hours and assessments, where all payments for the course have been settled.
If a candidate completes the learning hours for the course, but does not complete all assessments, a certificate of attendance can be issued by Dewi Development on request. This is not an accredited certificate of competence.
S13. Unforeseen circumstances
On occasions, unforeseen circumstances occur and we will do everything possible to rectify them, however it may lead to us cancelling the course. In these circumstances we will give you as much notice as possible and will offer you a free transfer to another course or a full refund. We will not be liable for any other costs incurred by yourselves if we cancel the course.

We hold the right to change our prices at any time.
We hold the right to change our services by providing 30 days’ notice to customers with bookings in writing by e-mail.
