A date transfer request of the course made by the client:
An additional £100 fee is payable if date is changed less than 7 days prior to the course. This charge is to protect our instructors from sudden loss of income due to late cancellation.
Blended learning - When you have been issued a username and password for online blended courses, you become liable for the cost of that part, regardless of when you cancel. The cost for Blended Courses is set at £30pp.
Candidate substitution – It is acceptable to substitute suitable candidates for booked courses, if required, but only prior to training date.
Cancellation by FlexiMed Training: This is very unlikely, however we reserve the right to cancel at any time, if this were to occur you would receive the full booking fee within 28 days. If a course has to be cancelled at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances, we will make every attempt to contact you at the address, telephone, fax, email given to us at reservation/booking.
Contact time: Late arrivals or absences during the course or from any session will probably mean that you will not receive the qualification certificate for which you have joined the course. Qualifications have a mandatory contact time requirement. In all such cases the full course fee remains payable.
Certificates: The cost of the certificate is included in the fees. Typically they are received 7-10 days following the course.
For in-house bookings they will be delivered to the lead booking contact unless informed otherwise.
We are happy to re-issue lost certificates at a charge of £10 per certificate.
Responsibilities: We ask that you/your course participants are aware of the following:
First Aid training is an active practical subject and can be physically demanding. Participants are normally expected to be physically fit enough to kneel, twist, and bend over simulated casualties, to sit on the floor, to perform simulated CPR, roll, be rolled and help roll simulated casualties.
Please bring any medical problems to our attention when booking the course. We will make all reasonable adjustments to account for this during our courses. We will not exclude anyone from our training but reserve the right to ensure all reasonable adjustments are in place to meet our statutory obligations. If you do not disclose information about yourself or your group at the time of booking, we reserve the right to cancel a course or your booking.
You should wear comfortable clothing, no shorts or low cut tops. You should also avoid wearing lipstick, lip-gloss or lip balms, as this hinders cleaning of the manikins.
