Frequently Asked Questions

We are pleased to share some common questions our clients ask us. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking please contact us.

What’s the difference between registering my interest and registering for a course offering?

When you register your interest, you are added to our private database, which will help us determine the demand for particular content and where we should be running the course.

How do I register my interest?

Go to the course you wish to register interest in and click the ‘Register your interest’ button. You will be asked for some details so we can learn more about your professional development needs, understand you preferences and stay in touch.

How do I register for a course?

Go to the course you wish to register for, click the ‘Register’ button and fill out your details. If you are a first time user you will be required to create an account to continue with your registration. Please note that all registrations are subject to our Terms and Conditions.

What do I do once I have registered?

As soon as you have registered you will automatically be sent a confirmation email confirming your attendance. If you do not receive a confirmation within 24 hours of registering please contact us. If you elected to receive an invoice before making payment one will be sent to you immediately after you register. You have seven business days to pay your invoice. All invoices must be paid in full before training starts.

How can I pay for a course?

We prefer payment upon registration (MasterCard or Visa), however, we accept electronic funds transfer via invoice as well. You will receive a confirmation email as soon as you have registered, confirming your attendance. Please contact us if you have not received a confirmation email within 24 hours of registering. Please note that all registrations must be finalised with payment prior to the training to secure your seat.

Do you provide lunch and refreshments at your training courses?

Yes, refreshments and lunch will be provided for all classroom courses.

What should I do if I have special dietary requirements?

Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements when you register. We will cater to any requirements if you indicate these on your registration form.

Do I get a certificate at the end of the course?

All our classroom and online course participants receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.
