Clients should note that all the aformentioned requirements will be fully discussed prior to the training taking place. However we do reserve the right to abort any course where our instructors consider the health and safety of the trainees is put at risk by either the equipment or the venue not being suitable. Should this unlikely event occur then we would require payment in full.

We look forward to working with you in the near future.
