TERMS & Conditions

Alpha Safety allows its clients the option to book by telephone or email. However, when our clients decide to book, they must abide by the following terms and conditions.

Fees: 

Where existing credit terms are not agreed all fees are payable in advance of course attendance. Confimation of course bookings will be made via a set of emailed course joining instructions. We reserve the right to refuse admission to the course until 100% of the course fees are paid. Any fees agreed are correct at the time of quotation, however, should the fees alter then we will inform you no later than 2 weeks before the start of the course. All prices are subject to VAT at the current rate (please note that certain government businesses are VAT exempt). 

Certificates: 

We will issue certificates upon receiving 100% of the course fee. Unpaid certificates will remain the property of Alpha Safety Training Ltd. until payment is made. Once payment is made, all outstanding certificates will be sent to the clients within 7 working days. Please note that should the certificates be issued by an external body, delivery timescales will vary. e.g. NEBOSH certificates may take up to 16 weeks to be issued by the Awarding Body.

Overdue Payments: 

Any late payments may incur an interest charge or, in the case of continued payment delay, legal action. 

 

Cancellation Policy:

In the unfortunate event that you require a cancellation, due to preliminary costs you will be subject to the following terms:

Cancellation between 0-10 days prior to the course start date = 100% of course fee payable

Cancellation between 11-28 days prior to course start date = 50% of course fee payable

Cancellation 29 or more days prior to course start date = 0% of course fees due or an agreed alternative course date transfer

We understand unexpected circumstances can sometimes arise, as a result Alpha Safety can support with a delegate name change on the course free of charge.

Where a delegate booking has been transferred onto an agreed alternative date, the cancellation policy terms are maintained from the original course date. A course booking cannot be transferred on more than one occasion. In the rare required circumstance, Alpha Safety Limited reserve the right to cancel courses at any time. In such event we will offer you an alternative placement at an agreed date.

In the event of no attendance of a booked course without prior notice you will be liable for full payment of the course fee. Any attendee that fails to successfully complete all required elements of a course, or fail to attend all scheduled course dates, will also be liable for 100% of the course fee.

There is a 24-hour cancellation grace period from the date and time a booking is raised. In the event this is required, the booking can transferred to an agreed date, a credit issued against your account or the booking can be removed all together.

* Exceptions of these terms can be reviewed under Alpha Safety's discretion. Please note, cancellations that are required in line with specified reasons such as Covid19 or major illness, we may require supporting evidence in line with your request.

Special Offer Policy: 

Special offer booking prices are subject to the specific course dates and title as determined by Alpha Safety. The offer applied to this booking cannot be used as price guarantee against other dates of the same course title, or bookings made for the same date prior to the special offer becoming available.

The special offer price is only applicable once made live by Alpha Safety and can be revoked at any time. In the event of a special offer booking which is rearranged onto an alternative date, the booking price will return to the original standard course price. Special offer bookings which are canceled are liable under the same cancellation policy as a traditional course booking.

Special offer bookings cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or discounts.

 

Course Contact Hours: 

Many of our courses are accredited by external awarding bodies, for example; IOSH, NEBOSH, CITB,  Pearson Edexcel and Highfield. As such we are required to ensure that the candidates for these courses have a specific level of tutor contact hours. Therefore, should clients arrive late for a course we reserve the right to refuse access to training if mandatory training hours cannot be met. In such situations the full course fee remains eligible for payment. 

Providing Courses at your Workplace (Private Training): 

Working time regulations prevent an employee working nights immediately after the night shift. Legislation states that employees have the right to an 11 hour break between shifts. We would appreciate it if you, as the employer, would abide by this legislation, as to do otherwise would be a conflict to the learning process of the student.

All above terms remiain applicable to private training.

Student Requirements: 

To prevent identity fraud, students are asked to provide photographic identification in the form of a valid driving Pliocene, valid passport, valid warrant card, employee ID card or a student travel card. Without ID the student will only be able to sit in on the course, but not be eligible to take any exams. 

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all students who are attending a physical skills course I.E. First Aid or Manual Handling, are free from any conditions which would affect their capability and aptitude to cope with the course of study. As per our policies, we welcome students with disabilities, but it remains the employer’s responsibility to ensure they are properly supported in their workplace. Information pertaining to this issue on each course can be obtained from the Managing Director at Alpha Safety Training Ltd.

CITB ITC Booking Terms & Conditions: 

All test bookings made are on the subject of availability, on a first come first serve basis. All tests are payable at the time of booking and the test won't be confirmed live until payment has been made. On confirmation of booking, the test details will be emailed to the booking contact encompassing all test details including time and location. The cost encompasses the test session along side the administration for booking and invigilation of the test and use of the test centre facilities (such as lockers and car parking).

In line with CITB regulations, we are unable to test anyone under the age of 16 years old. We also require valid photographic identification (such as a driving license or passport) to accept you onto the test, failure to produce photographic identification on registry will result in your test being cancelled without refund. All tests must be booked and registered 48 hours prior to the event, re-tests if required must also be raised minimum of 48 hours following the initial event. Any delegate who arrives late for their test registry risks being unable to sit their test without a refund being issued.

Bookings raised for the CITB operatives package will be booked in two parts under a discounted package. The package includes the CITB HS+E test along with the CITB Health & Safety Awareness Course at a discounted rate. The time and date of both the test must be selected at time of booking to confirm the package. On successful completion of both test & course, the delegate can then apply for their relevant card via the CSCS website. Alternatively, for an additional fee we can also apply for the CSCS card on behalf of the individual once the relevant application information has been provided (please see CSCS card application terms & conditions below).

You have the right to cancel your test or CITB package, please note the cancellation will fall in line with our traditional cancellation policy and dependent on the time frame may result in the loss of booking fee. For any support or further information please email us on info@alphasafety.co.uk
