By applying in writing, you acknowledge your understanding of, and agreement with, the general training terms and conditions. Within your written application, you will need to advise the name(s) of the delegate(s) and their email addresses.

- Duration and location of the training
The location and duration of the training course is specified in the relevant course description. Descriptions of all training courses can be found on Twinfield’s website.
- Prior knowledge & requirements
If there are indications at Twinfield that the training course chosen by a registered participant may not be the most suitable course, Twinfield will contact the applicant and recommend alternatives. The applicant, however, remains ultimately responsible for his / her choice.
- Cancellations / postponements
Any cancellations or postponements must always and only be submitted in writing (email is accepted) along with details of the course to which an application has been made and which the applicant wishes to postpone or cancel. Should the cancellation or postponement be submitted no less than two weeks prior to the course start date, then the course can be followed at a later date. It is also possible to follow a different course priced equivalently. In the event that the cancellation or postponement is submitted within the two week period prior to the start of the training or after commencement of the training course, then the delegate will be charged 50% of the course fee. This condition applies irrespective of the reason for the cancellation / postponement. Delegates may nominate a replacement attendee prior to the start of the course, however not once the relevant training course is underway.
Twinfield retains the right to make amendments to the course content, conditions, data, location and any other detail of the training course, when necessary.
