Practical Courses and Events

The BIO/Biometherapy reserve the right to change course/event content and/or trainer at any time or alter or cancel published dates and change venues without liability.  Whilst every effort is made to avoid cancelling any practical course or event, should a practical course or event be cancelled (and where it is not possible to provide an alternative), BIO/Biometherapy will refund, in full, any monies received in respect of that course or hold as a credit towards future or alternative courses.  We are not liable for any travel or accommodation costs.  

BIO/Biometherapy reserve the right to cancel or postpone events due to circumstances beyond our control such as an act of God, Governmental Regulation, Fire, Ware, Terrorist Activity or Civil Commotion.

If a delegate is unable to attend, and a transfer to an alternative date is required, an administration fee of £50 will apply.  If a transfer is not required, then no refund is available.
