By the client

  1. Courses booked by email or telephone can be cancelled within 14 days of the booking, in accordance with the distance selling regulations. Cancellation must be made in writing or by email. In the event of cancellation within 14 days of such a booking, Borderlands First Aid will fully reimburse any money paid.

Notice                                                                         Fees

More than 30 days prior to course                        No fee. Full refund given

7-30 days prior to course                                        50% of course fee payable

Less than 7 days prior to course                           100% of course fee payable

The client may transfer to another Borderlands First Aid course as an alternative to forfeiting part of the course fee. Course transfers less than 7 days prior to the course will incur a £30 administration fee.


Course Certificates

Our regulated first aid course certificates are externally awarded, so certificates are issued following the completion of the course. You should expect to receive your certificate within 3 weeks of the course, so please contact us if this has not happened. We regret that we cannot be held responsible for missing certificates reported to us more than 2 months after the end of the course. We will assist you in applying for replacements after this time but any replacement certificate fees will be your responsibility. E-certificates are issued to successful candidates as standard. Paper certificates can be requested for an additional fee but we must be notified of this prior to the course.
