Private Courses, Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions Private Course Event (the “Agreement”)
In exchange for payment of the fees and any applicable taxes arising under this Agreement and the relevant event confirmation letter as described below, Newtyne Consultancy and Training Limited (“Newtyne”) will provide training and/or education events (the “Event(s)”) to the Customer as specified in the event confirmation letter, subject to the following terms:
Once the Event topics have been verbally agreed, Newtyne will send an Event Confirmation Letter describing the Event(s), the associated prices and allowing the Customer to confirm the booking. Once Newtyne has received, by return, the signed confirmation sheet, the Event is deemed confirmed.
Each Event must be paid in full prior to the commencement of the Event.
In the event of late payment, Newtyne reserves the right to charge interest on all outstanding amounts at the rate of 5% per calendar month, or part thereof, calculated on the amount outstanding from the due date up to (and including) the date of full payment.
For Events held at Newtyne premises, the price includes all printed materials, lunch and refreshments.
For Events held at a Customer site, the course price will include all printed materials. Instructor expenses will be added to the Event invoice.
For Events held at a third party venue (e.g. an external training centre), the course price will include all printed materials and a charge for room hire. Instructor expenses will be added to the Event invoice.
All Private Course Event prices quoted in the Event Confirmation Letter exclude VAT.
Cancellation and Transfer Policy Should an Event require to be cancelled, please contact Newtyne.
If a cancellation is made more than ten (10) working days prior to the Event commencement date then any monies that have been received by Newtyne for the Event will be returned to the delegate party in full.
If the cancellation of the Event is made less than ten (10) working days before the Event commencement date then a cancellation fee equal to the full Event price will be due.
If the Event can be transferred to another date that is agreed by Newtyne and the Customer, no cancellation fee is payable provided the rescheduled Event takes place. In such case, there will be an administrative charge of 20% of the Event price. An Event may only be rescheduled once. If the rescheduled Event is cancelled a cancellation fee of the full Event price will be due.
Booking of Third Party exams
Where third party certification exams are delivered as part of the event and included in the event prices they will be delivered as proctored exam and taken remotely at the learner’s home or office. The exam fee is included in the course price and it will be scheduled by us.
Should it be required, Newtyne will be able to reschedule the exam once without the learner incurring any further charge. If the exam is still not taken at the 2nd attempt the booking will be cancelled and subsequent bookings will be managed and paid for directly by the learner.
Should a resit be required this will be managed by the learner and at their expense.
The Customer shall supply Newtyne with details of facilities and the system infrastucture to be used in order that suitable arrangements may be made.
Any reduction in delegates within ten (10) working days prior to the Event commencement date will not be reflected in a price reduction. Any increase in delegate numbers will result in an increase to the Event price. Delegate names must be supplied to Newtyne at least five (5) working days prior to the Event commencement date. Newtyne will make no charge if a substitute delegate replaces the original delegate. Please contact Newtyne to confirm any delegate changes.
One course day is deemed to be approximately eight hours including one hour for lunch and half an hour for breaks. The full schedule will be outlined in the Event Confirmation Letter.
