TERMS & CONDITIONS
The deposit is non-refundable. We will send you a receipt and invoice you 6 weeks prior to the course, for the balance. This is payable by return please. Those courses booked less than 6 weeks in advance should be paid in full at the time of booking. In the unlikely circumstances that the course or the venue has to be changed or cancelled by us we will offer an alternative. If this is unacceptable we will return the deposit and the fee(s) for the dates concerned. If you cancel less than 6 weeks prior to the course there will be no refund, if you postpone within 6 weeks of the course we will ask you for 50% of the course fee, unless we can fill the space in which case you will be charged a £35.00 fee to cover the costs of finding a replacement. If you postpone more than 6 weeks prior to the start date of any of our courses (or series of courses) we will arrange a new date free of charge.

We recommend the use of eye and respiratory protection whenever using solvents. We also recommend you wear eye protection, when practical when using hand tools and a dust mask when engaged in any activity that creates dust. We further recommend the wearing of an apron and footwear that ensures a sure footing. Always follow instructions, particularly whenever using sharp tools. Rubber gloves must always be worn whenever using hot water or handling solvents and chemicals. Please provide your own rubber gloves and apron, masks and eye protecting goggles are provided.
