Provisional bookings

When booking a Course online, acknowledgement of the booking request is emailed within 1 (one) working day the request is received by MD Inc. and/or MD Courses. Where a booking made online, by email or over the telephone is not accompanied by full payment or a formal purchase order, the booking will be deemed to be provisional (“Provisional Booking”). Provisional Bookings will only be held until 2 (two) weeks prior to commencement of the Course, after this any Provisional Bookings will be cancelled. When payment has been received in full, or a formal purchase order has been provided, the individuals’ place on the Course will then be confirmed and a binding contract will have been entered into between MD Inc. and/or MD Courses. and the booking party.

 

Cancellation of Courses

MD Inc. and/or MD Courses. reserves the right to amend or cancel any Course, Course times, dates or published prices. Changes to Course prices, times and dates will be advised before the Course start date and any Course already paid in full will not be subject to the increased price.

Any travel or accommodation costs incurred are entirely the delegate’s responsibility. MD Inc. and/or MD Courses. does not accept any liability for reimbursement of any costs incurred whatsoever in relation to its training Courses or events. Where a Course has been cancelled, delegates will be offered an alternative date for the same Course, a credit towards another Course or a refund.
