Our rescheduling policies do apply to discounted courses.

Rescheduling your course
  • If you cannot attend on your scheduled date, you must notify us before then. If you do, we will reschedule the course date with you for any course date within the next 6 months, at the same location, subject to availability.
  • You must send your reschedule request to us either by telephone or email at least 48 hours before the start of the course. We only allow up to two reschedules per booking. You will be required to complete a new booking if you do not attend the course within 6 months of the initial course start date.
  • If you do not attend your course and do not notify us or reschedule it, you must make and pay for a new booking if you wish to take the course in the future.
  • Unless you have purchased the Gold or Platinum package (see below), we shall charge you £170 for rescheduling.
  • If you have purchased the Gold package, you can reschedule your course for free, but ONLY IF you reschedule your course at least 72 hours before your course start date/time. If you reschedule to a course starting within 72 hours, we shall charge the standard £170 reschedule fee.
  • If you have purchased the Platinum package, you can reschedule your course for free but ONLY IF you reschedule your course at least 24 hours before your course start date/time. If your course is starting within 24 hours, we shall charge the standard £170 reschedule fee.

  • It is a legal requirement to have an ID on you at all times during your training. If you do not bring the required IDs to your course, you must reschedule to another course and we shall charge a £170 rescheduling fee.
  • If you are going to be late to the course, you must contact us immediately. If you are going to be substantially late to the course, you reschedule to another course, and we shall charge a £170 rescheduling fee.
  • If you do not complete the pre-course e-learning, you will not be allowed to complete the course, you will be sent home on the first course day, and we shall charge a £170 rescheduling fee if you wish to attend a new course.
Cancelling your course
  • All bookings are non-refundable except as set out in this section.
  • If you wish to cancel your booking, you must reach out to us via telephone or email within 14 days of your booking. In such cases, we shall refund you your payments less a handling and administration fee of £150. You cannot cancel a booking if the booked course starts before the 14 days elapse. Alternatively, you can reschedule (see above).
  • If you have paid a deposit and do not notify us of non-attendance without rescheduling (see above), you will cease to be eligible for a reschedule, and we shall not refund you.
  • If we have received your payment, and do not notify us of non-attendance without rescheduling (see above), you will cease to be eligible for a reschedule and you will not be eligible for a refund.
  • However, if you have to cancel your course due to a relevant and substantial medical reason, you must provide evidence such as a doctor's letter. If we agree that such medical reason is relevant and substantial enough to prevent you attending, we shall refund you less your payments less a handling and administration fee of £150.

Occasionally, we need to change the date/time/place of courses. If we need to do so, in total or in part, we will notify you as soon as is reasonably possible of such changes. You can then either:

  • accept the new arrangements;
  • purchase another course from us (paying, or receiving a refund, in respect of any differences); or
  • treat us as having cancelled your course and receive a full refund.
Corporate/In-house courses
  • Courses arranged to train candidates from the same organisation fall in this category if paid for directly by that organisation. We must receive payment in full at least five working days before the course start date.
  • All such bookings are non-refundable (either in full or in part) if the customer cancels or does not pay the total due amount in full. The refund and rescheduling terms above apply if the customer cancels.

  • You must attend the resit session you book. If you do not attend the resit session on time, we shall not refund your fees.
  • You may not attend a resit until you have attended the whole of your course, including the examination on the last day. 'Resit' does not include any add-on courses, such as Emergency First Aid at Work, English Assessment, Handcuff training, or any online e-Learning courses.
  • If you cannot attend a booked resit then you must notify us at least 72 hours before the resit.
  • 'Unlimited' resits are unlimited as to number, but not as to non-attendance, time, availability, , or frequency
  • Attendance: if unlimited resits are included in your package, you must attend each resit that you book as a condition of future resits continuing to be available. If you do not attend a resit that you have booked then you forfeit the right to any further resits as part of your package, and we shall charge £100 for each further resit.
  • Time and availability: if you have purchased unlimited resits via the Gold and Platinum packages, you must take all resits within 12 months of the date you purchased the course, or before the Awarding Body introduces new course material, whichever is sooner. If you book a resit that is 12 months from the date of purchase, we shall charge a £100 resit fee. As regards availability, the Awarding Body normally introduces new course material and exam content every five years. Unlimited resits can only be claimed against the resit relating to the specific course material and exam taken. It is your responsibility to check with the Awarding Body to ascertain the period after which old course resits are no longer valid or available.
  • Frequency: we can only schedule resits alongside existing course dates at your course location. Please review the frequency of courses in your location so you have an understanding of potential resit frequency.

Assessment results are normally available to you within 14 working days of sitting the exam. You can check your results online. We are not liable for any kind of loss in case of a delay in publishing your results or any delay by the Awarding Body.

You and we share responsibility for making sure your purchases are exciting, rewarding and hassle-free. We strongly encourage you to work within our complaint resolution process to deal with any complaint before starting any claim. As regards that resolution process, we shall make a final decision, in our sole discretion, on any complaint that you raise with us under the Get Licensed Training Guarantee Policy that you can find here. If we resolve a dispute in your favour, we will refund your full cost of the training (including any applicable taxes).

We reserve the right to fix any processing errors we discover. We will correct any processing errors by debiting or crediting the payment method used.

We work hard to ensure our prices are the lowest you'll find online for the same course. If you find the same course advertised by us cheaper elsewhere, talk to a member of our team now and we may offer you a price match, if the exact same course is available elsewhere at a lower price.

You authorise us to make disbursement payments for examination fees to QualHub (qualhub.org), an examination services provider, on your behalf, to cover the cost of your course examinations. These fees are included in the prices displayed on our website and will be itemised on your invoice for your reference.

We offer a 100% refund on your fees other than Close Protection and E-Learning courses if you attend the course and dislike it, subject to each of the following:

  • You must attend the course on time.
  • You must not attempt any assessments or exams.
  • You must not have been asked to leave the course due to ID documents, failure to complete prior assessments (eLearning) or English assessments, or for causing disruption or nuisance.
  • You must have notified us within 24 hours of leaving the course that you wish to exercise the guarantee.
  • Your reasons for leaving the course must not be anything other than your dislike for the course (for example, family reasons or health).

  • If you require reading or writing assistance during examinations you will need to contact us at least 12 weeks before any course start date. We will need to arrange permission from the Awarding BODY, and arrange a reader for you, for which you must provide an assessment letter. In order to obtain this letter you will need to visit the nearest British Dyslexia Association Centre to be officially assessed. Further information can be found here.
