TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Course bookings should be made at least 10 days prior to the course date.  Later bookings are at the tutor's discretion.

COURSE PAYMENT: 

Deposits: 

You are paying a non-refundable DEPOSIT to book your course.  The balance is payable to the tutor (see below).

If paying a deposit by cheque, this should be done at least 21 days before the start of the course to allow time for cheques to clear.

Balance payments: 

The balance payment is to be paid directly to your tutor who will contact you with payment details within 48 hours after your deposit confirmation has been received. 

The balance payment should be made as soon as possible after booking and no later than 10 days before the course date. Failure to pay within this time may mean that your place on the course is cancelled.

For late bookings (ie within 10 days of the course date) balance payments should be made on receipt of tutor payment details. 

Cash payments on the day of training are NOT accepted.  

If paying balance by cheque, this should be done at least 10 days before the start of the course to allow time for cheques to clear.

Course cancellation: in the event of a genuine reason for cancellation a request for transfer to a later course will be considered. If you cancel your course less than 7 days before the course date, you will lose your deposit and balance payment. If you wish to rebook, the full course fee will be charged and must be paid in full 21 days in advance of the new date. 

Failure to attend a course: if you fail to attend a course without notice and without a genuine reason your full course fee is lost. A doctor's letter or copy of a sick note will be required if sickness is the reason for non-attendance. If you wish to rebook, the full course fee will be charged and must be paid in full no later than 21 days in advance of the new date. 

Change of date: with good notice (ie no later than 10 days before the course date), your tutor may be willing to change the date of your course. However, for changes made with less than 10 days notice, a charge of £50 will be made.

Delayed courses: all courses must be taken within 6 months of the booking fee being paid.  Any longer delay in taking the courses will result in the course fee being forfeited.

Anatomy & Physiology courses will not be refunded.

Assessment of Reflexology and Aromatherapy Diplomas: students have 6 months from initial training date to complete case studies and assessment otherwise you must repeat days 1&2 at further cost.

Assessment of other courses: the vast majority of students will pass their course on the day, However, occasionally a tutor may deem that the student has not reached competency.  In this situation, students will need to return for extra practice of a treatment/routine and re-assessment.  An extra charge may be made for this.

Insurance: it is the student's responsibility to check with their own insurance provider that they will recognise our courses for insurance purposes.  All of our courses are accredited by the Beauty Guild and ABT  who offer full insurance cover for all of your qualifications.

Copyright: Amethyst Holistic Training reserves the copyright for manuals supplied during training.  These must not be copied or used in any way.  Please respect this right.

Timing of courses: timing of classes is at the tutor's discretion.  Classes can and do end earlier/later than stated depending on size, even or odd student numbers and other factors.  If it is a one to one, we often finish earlier.

Refresher courses:  occasionally a tutor may decide that one day is insufficient to bring your skills up to the required standard. In this case, extra study time will be arranged at an extra cost. (This is entirely at the discretion of the tutor and is always designed to meet your training needs.)

You are required to provide your certificates before attendance on the day; please scan and email to head office.  Please bring your notes for your procedure/routine so that you can refresh your treatment as it has been taught to you.

1:1 training: If you specifically request 1:1 training an extra charge may be made.  This is entirely at the tutor's discretion.  

Courses with only 1 student: courses will still run if there is only one student but you will need to bring a friend or family member on whom to practise. It is the responsibility of the student to find a model. Tutors may try and provide models if you are finding it difficult to bring one yourself but this cannot be guaranteed and is entirely at the discretion of the tutor. If you are unable to find a model and cancel the course later than 7 days before the course date you will lose your deposit and balance payments. (See paragraph above re course cancellation above.)  

Models: All models must be over 16, in good health and not have any contraindications.  If your model does have any contra-indications the course will not be able to go ahead until the model is in good health or an alternative model is found.  You will be sent an email with contra-indications relevant to the procedure you are learning.  

Models for waxing must be prepared to have all necessary areas waxed.

If models are pregnant, no massage is allowed in the first trimester and they MUST gain GP or midwife approval to have a massage.

Lash Perm and Lash & Brow Tinting & Shaping courses: for health and safety reasons a patch test MUST be carried out 48 hours prior to this course.  This can be done either at the training venue if you live nearby or by yourself having purchased your own kit .  If you are the only student on the course you must carry out the patch test on your model and bring your kit with you on the training day.  

Spray Tanning: a patch test MUST be carried out 48 hours prior to this course.  This can be done either at the training venue if you live nearby.  If not, then you need to purchase your own spray tan product and perform a patch test on your model/yourself and bring the product with you on the day of training.
