- If a student has a discount code entitling them to discounted course fees, the student must e-mail EMD UK with the discount code within 14 days of booking. Failure to contact EMD UK within the specified timeframes will result in the student forfeiting the use of their discount code.
- You have the right to cancel your course booking and obtain a refund of the fees paid to date* if you inform us within 14 working days from the date of booking your course. If the course has started within those 14 working days you agree that this right of cancellation shall not apply. *With the exception of the £100 deposit, which is non-refundable and will not be returned under this cancellation.
- If you cancel your course after 14 working days from the date of booking no refund will apply, and your full course fee will still be applicable.
- If you need to transfer to an alternative course you will need to inform EMD UK in writing. If a change of date is given before the online learning commences there will be a £50 administration charge. If a change of date is given after the online learning part of your course has commenced then EMD UK will charge you for the full course fee of your original course, in addition to the full course fee for the course you transfer to.
- If you need to transfer to another course you will need to secure your place and attend an alternative course within 6 months of your original course. Failure to book onto another course within this timeframe will result in the loss of any monies paid to date.
- In the unlikely event that EMD UK has to cancel a course we will offer you the choice of alternative dates. If these dates are not suitable to you EMD UK will refund any monies paid to date, including the £100 deposit.

On this basis we will transfer your course fees to another course or offer you a full refund.

If the Personal Trainer course that you have booked onto is cancelled by EMD UK, and you are unable to attend another course, you will be offered a refund for the Personal Trainer element of the package (to be worked out as the price difference between the cost of the Gym Instructing course that you attended, and the amount you paid for the package).
