Training Events/Conferences Terms and Conditions
D&T Association Annual Conference/Paid for Training Events
Substitutions welcome at any time prior to the training session. The school or booker must ensure the D&T Association is aware of the changes. In the case of a non member replacing a member delegate, the D&T Association will invoice for the balance of the delegate rate. It is important to inform us as some venues require information regarding the delegates attending such as proof of identity or DBS certification.
All cancellations must be made in writing.
The Design and Technology Association reserve the right to alter or cancel the programme and/or venue/ course without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. We also reserve the right in our absolute discretion and without further liability to cancel the programme in which instance course fees will be refunded.
Please notify the Association/Course presenter if you are unable to attend as this may enable someone else to attend in your place.
The course presenters reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee for non-attendance, or if there is a cancellation less than ten working days before the start of the course. The fee will be varying according to the resources provided on the course, but can be confirmed when booking onto a course.
If a delegate has booked paid for a course but decides, (within the cancellation policy), to move to a different course, this must be within the term originally booked or the term following the original booking date
