Obtaining a seat

Unless otherwise stated on the training outline, course bookings operate on a first come, first serve basis. An acknowledgement email will be sent to you after we receive your application. All official correspondence concerning a course booking should be made in writing and sent by email, in order to ensure a clear record of the booking status.

Holding a seat

Training places are only fully confirmed upon receipt of the full course fee by Key Aid Consulting.

If two weeks before the course is due to start, payment has not been received and the course is oversubscribed, Key Aid Consulting reserves the right to cancel the participant’s place in this course.

Payment

Payment is due no later than 2 weeks before the start of the course.

If payment has not been received at the start of the course, Key Aid Consulting reserves the right to refuse access to the course.

The invoice is issued in Euros and payment should be sent so that the exact amount in Euros is received by Key Aid. The bank charges incurred by the transfer are to be covered by the participant.

Cancelling your booking

For bookings cancelled two or more weeks before a course, administrative charges will apply. Applicants will be entitled to a refund of 70% of the course fees paid, or if places are available will be offered a transfer of 90% of the course fees paid onto the next instance of the course.

For bookings cancelled one to ten working days* before a course begins, 25% of the course fee will be refunded (*during normal French working days, Monday – Friday and working hours 9am-5pm).

For bookings cancelled less than 24 hours (working days only) before a course, or after a course has started, no refund will be provided.

If the applicant chooses to transfer to another course and then cancels their booking a second time, neither a further transfer nor a refund will be offered.

Alternatively, participation can be transferred to another candidate from the same organization up until a week before the start of the course.

The refund must be claimed within two months from the cancelled course start date.

Please note that we are only able to cover our local bank charges and not the recipient’s bank charges when we make refunds. If refund is to be made by transfer agent (e.g. Western Union), the transfer fees are to be covered by the participant.

All refund will take place in euros, it is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure they provide bank details for an account that will accept euros.

Refunds may take up to 30 days.

No refund will be made for non-attendance on a course. Non-attendance includes: failure to cancel your place; cancelling your place after the close of normal office hours on the last working day before the course; failure to attend the course, and; informing us of cancellation following the start of the course.
