    By completing and submitting this registration form, you agree to comply with RADTAC's booking and cancellation policy. Registration includes the provision of any relevant training documentation and light refreshments, but does not include accommodation or transport costs.

    Booking Policy

    Bookings are confirmed on receipt of full payment in advance of the course.

    Cancellation Policy

    Cancellations made more than 7 days prior to an event will not be refunded - instead the delegate will be given the option to transfer to a course on an alternate date.

    Delegates who cancel their reservation less than 7 days prior to an event will incur a charge of 50% of the course fee; the option to transfer will still be available to such delegates.

    Transfer Policy

    RADTAC’s recognition of today’s fast-paced business world means that registered participants are permitted to transfer onto an alternative course once at no extra cost. However, each transfer after that is subject to an additional fee of £100 + VAT, payable within one week of invoice.

    In the event that RADTAC is unable to deliver a course on the date planned, a full refund of the pre-paid fee will be provided. However, should an event need to be cancelled due to circumstances out of RADTAC's control (adverse weather conditions, acts of terrorism, geographical incidents), a re-scheduling of the course will be initiated, rather than a refund being issued. RADTAC is not responsible for any additional costs or losses the client may incur as a result of unforeseen events.
