Student bookings are accepted on the understanding that candidates meet the prerequisites as detailed in the HOST Course Description. The prerequisites are met by the satisfactory completion of the appropriate course(s) or by having equivalent knowledge and experience.
Provisional bookings will be held for a maximum of 5 working days. All bookings must be confirmed in writing with a purchase order and will only be valid when signed by an authorised signatory. Such signature shall constitute acceptance of HOST Computer Services' Terms and Conditions.
The course will commence on the date, time and at the location specified in the Confirmation Instructions.
Full course fees become due for payment upon receipt of invoice. VAT will be added to all fees at the current UK rate.
Cancellations will only be accepted if confirmed in writing and will be charged at the following rates:
Working days prior to course start date
|0-10||100% of course fee|
A substitute student from the same company will be accepted up to the commencement of the course free-of-charge, providing the substitute meets the prerequisites.
Where students request a transfer to an alternative course date within 10 working days of original course commencement, the full cost of the course will be charged. This will be offset against the new course date, with an additional £30.00 per course day per student re-booking charge being levied (therefore for a 5 day course a charge of £150.00 will apply). This is subject to the proviso that the course is still available.
Customer Site & Closed Course Training
A customer site course will be the subject of an agreement between HOST Computer Services and the customer. The fee for the course will be stated on the agreement. These fees are based on the maximum number of students and the number of days. Any additional students or days will be charged pro-rata. Travel and living expenses of the instructor(s) involved will also be recovered. All charges are subject to VAT at the current rate.
Cancellations will only be accepted if made in writing and will be charged at the following rates:
Working days prior to course start date
|10 - 20||25% of course fee|
|0 - 10||100% of course fee|
