Cancellations, Transfers and Refunds
Requests for cancellations, deferrals or substitutions must be received in writing. The date on which the written notice is received by MetaPM Learning will be deemed as the date on which the request has been made. Cancellation due to illness or other medical emergency requires a medical certificate. On presentation of a medical certificate, a refund* is also available. All deferral and cancellation fees are calculated as a percentage of the original course fee and are dependent on the number of working days’ notice given to MetaPM Learning in writing before the commencement date. Courses that have been paid for and not attended will be held in credit for a period not exceeding 1 year from the original course date. Failure to reschedule attendance will result in the full fee being forfeited after such time. Failure to respond to course emails or other correspondence from MetaPM does not constitute notice of a cancellation, substitution or deferral. If a registration is transferred or cancelled by the client, the following fees will apply:
- Cancellation or transfer to a different course date more than four calendar weeks before start date of course: no charge/refund*
- Transfer to a different course date less than two calendar weeks before start date of course: 25% of course fee
- Transfer to a different course less than one calendar week before the start date of course: 50% of course fee
- Cancellation more than two calendar weeks before start date of course: 50% of course fee
- Cancellation less than two calendar weeks before start date of course: 100% of course fee
A substitute delegate may be nominated at any time provided that:
- The new delegate is attending exactly the same dates and course, and MetaPM is notified of the replacement delegate’s name and contact details as soon as possible
- Any pre-course information already received is passed on to the replacement delegate by the original delegate
MetaPM Learning reserves the right to cancel or alter the dates of any given course. Affected registrations will generally be transferred to the next available course in consultation with the client. A refund* is available to the client in the event that new dates cannot be facilitated. Refund Requirements In the event that a client requests a refund* (having satisfied the terms and conditions above), the client must provide MetaPM with all information required to facilitate said refund, in writing. Upon failure to supply the required information, those funds will be held in credit for a period not exceeding 1 year from the original course date. Failure to reschedule training or to provide the required information for the refund within this time will result in the full fee being forfeited after such time.
