We are committed to providing a professional, effective, and courteous training service to all our customers and training delegates. We appreciate though, that on occasion there may be a reason for complaint.
If you are dissatisfied with any of our courses or trainers, we want you to tell us. This will allow us to resolve your complaint, and try to ensure it does not happen again. This procedure tells you how to make a complaint about any of the training services we have provided.

An assurance that the same mistake will not happen again.
Details of the action we have taken to put things right.
You may also be entitled to financial compensation and/or alternative training courses/services. Compensation will depend on the circumstances, and any actual loss suffered or costs incurred. Each claim is considered on its own merit.
Training Evaluation and Feedback
One of the best ways we can continue to improve our service is by training evaluation, listening to, and responding to our customer views. We hope that there will not be cause for complaint, but if there is, we promise to act promptly to get early resolution. Our aim is to learn from any complaints, and improve the effectiveness of our courses and training techniques.
Please also take the time to tell us when we get it right. If there is any specific part of our training course, course materials, Instruction techniques or Instructor that you found particularly effective, please let us know so that we can maintain our good practices. Please send any comments to our Head Office.
