How does payment work ?
To book in to any of our training groups, a €100 pre-payment is required to secure your place. When payment is received this solidifies your booking. This is strictly a non-refundable payment. If you cancel your training this is not refunded. There are no large deposits required. The €100 payment covers module 1. On the day of module 1 we ask for a €50 deposit for module 2. One the day of module 2, we ask for a €50 deposit for module 3. After module 3 we do not ask for any further deposits and it becomes a pay as you go system. On arrival on Saturday mornings to our location you pay the full €175 for the training weekend and the same applies to each months training. We do not ask for large deposits as this system can deter individuals who may not have large sums of money at their disposal.

What if i cant make it to a training weekend?
If a student can not make it to one of the scheduled training weekends due to certain events, illness, circumstances out of their control, we have a number of systems in place to get the student back up to speed with the rest of the group. You have the choice to do that particular missed module online through our online training system. This is through a recorded video presentation and associated manual. This can be done before you get to the next module of training. Alternatively you can join your teacher on a one to one basis to complete the module. This is usually done on the friday before your scheduled weekend and typically takes one day. So, dont worry about a missed module, we will get you right up to speed. It is important to understand that this should only be used as an alternative in unusual circumstances where the student can not physically attend a training module.
