- If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we have not been able to satisfy ourselves as to your suitability for the practical course you wish to attend.
- We sell to overseas customers. If you are an overseas customer, you will be required to attend the practical course at one of our UK locations, as published on our website. A full payment will have to be made at the time of booking.

- OUR SERVICES
- Descriptions and illustrations. Any descriptions or illustrations on our site are published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the services described in them. They will not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
- Compliance with specification. Subject to our right to amend the specification (see clause 5.3) we will supply our services to you in accordance with the specification for the services appearing on our website at the date of your order in all material respects.
- Changes to specification. We reserve the right to amend the specification of the services if required by any Applicable Laws or if the amendment will not materially affect the nature or quality of the services, and we will notify you in advance of any such event.

- Time for performance. We will use all reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates specified in the order confirmation. In the event we need to change a date and/or location of your training course, we will contact you immediately and offer you an alternative date and/or location, as appropriate. If the alternative date and/or location is not suitable for you, you may cancel the order and request a refund.
- Models for practical courses. We aim to provide a wide range of models for your training and to cover a variety of treatments, in our efforts to make sure your training needs are met to the highest standard. However, as with any aesthetic clinic, treatment cancellations can occur and such treatments can only be carried out subject to model suitability on the day of the training; this is determined by the supervising practitioner. Our delegates are welcome to bring their own model on the day of training. Please inform a member of the team when booking your course to confirm your model’s suitability for the particular course. Please check the fee that will apply for the treatment required by clicking here.

Once you have booked for one of our courses, depending on whether you are completing an online course or a practical training course, you will receive your course material (any manuals etc.) accordingly. Our attendance certificates are recognised by all leading aesthetic insurance companies.
- Online course assessments consist of multiple choice questions upon the completion of which results will be generated and if you have been successful you will shortly receive a certificate with the name of the particular course via email. In the event that you do not reach the pass rate a complementary re-assessment will be available. If this has not been successful, you will be required to pay a fee for each subsequent re-assessment (see clause 8 (Payments)).
- Practical training courses and assessments: We cannot guarantee that all delegates attending a practical course will receive a certificate. In the event that you have not demonstrated competence and your training supervisor considers that you require further training, your certificate will not be granted and you will not be entitled to any refund and any outstanding balance must be settled in full within 5 working days. Where further training is recommended, you will be offered a complimentary two-hour training session with an opportunity to complete your assessment. In the event that your assessment has not been successful following the complimentary training session, you will be required to book a fresh course and pay appropriate fee.
