Purchases & Refunds

We currently use PayPal our payment service. You can use your PayPal account or if you don't have a PayPal account you can use a Debit or Credit card via PayPal without a PayPal account.
Once you have access to a course, we generally do not approve a refund. However, if the instructor decides to withdraw a course from the platform, we will issue a full refund if you were unable to finish the course. If you have enrolled in a course with a time limit, and you are unable to complete the course in time, you need to provide evidence for the reason you were unable to complete the course, for example a sick note from your doctor. You will receive a refund or an offer to reenroll if you were sick and unable to complete the course on time. For other valid reasons, please contact us in writing via the contact page and ask for a refund.
If you have a coupon or discount code, you can enter this at the check out to receive your discount. If the code no longer works, it may have expired.

If you believe you hold the credentials required for the course, you can send an email via the website and request access. You may be asked for evidence of your credentials.

If you haven't received any login details, after 30 minutes, check you spam or junk mail folder. If you followed both steps and you still haven't received your login details, please contact us by sending an email via the contact page on this website.
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

Events and Live Courses

If you have registered for a paid live event and you missed it, you will have to contact the organiser of the event. Generally speaking there are no refunds on live events, but if you were unable to attend the organiser might give you a voucher for the next event. This depends on the organiser and the type of event. If you can no longer see the event organiser listed, please contact us via the form below and let us know what event you registered for. We will try to get you in touch with the event organiser.
For your convenience, the date and time of live events are listed in your browsers time zone. This means you do not have to recalculate the date and time of the event to your own date and time (unless you have altered your computer settings). The date and time displayed in the Event Calendar is the correct date and time for your time zone.
