Cancellation and Payment Policy
Chill Out Training and Enterprise (COTE) requires a deposit to secure all course bookings. In the event that you are unable to attend your course the deposit is non-refundable.
The remaining cost of your course should be paid on your first day of attendance. In certain circumstances and at the discretion of a manager, the remaining cost of the course may be off-set and spread over the time that you are studying with us. In such circumstances, we will agree and document a payment plan. An admin fee will also be payable. Failure to complete your course does not remove your responsibility to pay. All course fees must be paid for in full by the last day of attendance.
