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. COVID-19

If you need to self-isolate due to COVID-19, you must notify us as soon as you know you will be self-isolating for part or all of the course. If notified prior to the course start, we will provide a transfer to another scheduled course. Where there is no other scheduled course available, we will either put you on a waitlist for the new schedule or refund you the price paid for the course.

If you attend training without completing the pre-course COVID-19 online course safety training or without completing the online COVID-19 declaration including contact details, you will not be admitted to the course. In these circumstances, a refund will not be provided.

If you attend the course with symptoms of COVID-19, you will not be admitted to the course and no refund will be provided.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms during the course, you will be asked to leave the course to self-isolate and notify track and trace. You will be offered a transfer to the next available course to complete your training. If you do not arrange a transfer when you are well, no refund will be provided.

We hold the right to ask for evidence of positive COVID-19 test where transfer/cancellation is requested. Where a second request to transfer is requested due to COVID-19, evidence of a positive test will be required.

If our trainer develops symptoms of COVID-19, we will make every effort to find a replacement trainer to deliver the training. Where we cannot find a replacement trainer, we will postpone the training providing as much notice as possible. We will offer transfers for all candidates to a rescheduled date or future course.

Where you or we have to cancel due to COVID-19, we will not be responsible for any additional costs incurred due to the cancellation.

S8. 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.

S9. Non-attendance

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.

S10. 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.

S11. 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.

S12. 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.

S13. Certification

Certificates will be issued on successful completion of all learning hours and assessments, where all payments for the course have been settled.
