Additional Information

Payment, Refund and Cancellation Policy

Full payment must be made in advance of each course and all courses are subject to VAT.  

Whilst we hope this will never happen, if we don’t get a viable number of delegates we may have to cancel the training course. In the unlikely event that this happens, delegates will be offered an alternative date, course or a full refund (excluding Eventbrite fees if applicable).

As all training resources, space and refreshments are secured in advance for all training courses we are unable to issue refunds for cancellations or non-attendance. 

If you are unable to attend, you can nominate an alternative attendee free of charge or transfer to another date providing 2 weeks notice of the original course date is given.


Accreditation is governed by accrediting bodies. Therefore, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce can take no responsibility for candidates failing to meet accreditation requirements or for any other matter relating to accreditation criteria.
