It is the responsibility of the Client to ensure that the delegates meet the prerequisites of the course on which they are booked, and that the course content meets their requirements.

Cancellation, Transfers and Substitutions with respect to Training Courses
Barclay Penny Training reserves the right to cancel or arrange an alternative date for a course. In such circumstances Barclay Penny Training will endeavour to provide notice of cancellation or change to the Client. In the event of cancellation, the Client will be entitled to a full refund of the course fee but Barclay Penny Training shall not be liable for any other loss or expense arising.
The Client may cancel the course booking by notifying Barclay Penny Training in writing by acknowledged email or by recorded delivery as soon as reasonably practicable. The Client shall also be deemed to have cancelled the course booking if the delegate does not attend the event. The Client shall be liable to pay a cancellation fee as follows:
Public Scheduled Courses:
|Number of Days Notice||Proportion of Course Fee Payable|
|1 Working Day||100%|
|5 Working Days||50%|

|Number of Days Notice||Proportion of Course Fee Payable|
|5 Working Days||50%|
In the event that the delegate is unable to attend the course booked Barclay Penny Training will endeavour to transfer the delegate to an alternative course. If this is requested 26 or more Working Days from the start date of the original course then the only charges applicable will be an administration fee of £50 (plus VAT) plus any difference in course price. If a transfer is requested within 26 Working Days then the cancellation fee above shall be payable.
Barclay Penny Training will endeavour to accommodate requests by the Client to substitute one delegate for another but is under no obligation to do so.
