Don't be Left Disappointed

The earlier you book the cheaper it is! That's our policy. The earlier you book a course online, the more likely the course is to run! We don't offer discounts for last minute bookings in fact quite the opposite. Book late and you'll end up paying the FULL price!!!

Late bookings mean we have to order extra manuals, which we have to pay express delivery charges for, additional food, that means our purchasing power is reduced, and reconfiguring rooms, which means extra time. Unfortunately all these unforeseen changes cost money which you end-up paying.

Just look how much you can save on our online listed prices the earlier you book!

  • 45 working days or more attracts an 8% reduction
  • Less than 45 working days = Full Price

Secure your place early and get a great reduction!
