Deposit and Payment

A deposit is required for each training course; the amounts are detailed with each course. This deposit secures your place and booking, your booking will not be taken or confirmed without a deposit. The deposit and remaining payment can be made by prior bank transfer, cash or card payment. This deposit is non-refundable but in the event you are unable to make the date booked, please provide at least 72 hours notice and it can be redeemed against a later training date. You can default on this three times before the deposit is lost and you will be required to pay the full training cost. If you have paid for your course in full in advance, this is also non refundable and should you decide not to continue with your course at any date a refund will not be granted. The remaining balance will be due two weeks prior to commencement of the course. If you book your place after this time frame, full payment will be due at the time of booking, which will be non refundable but as above, is transferrable with a minimum of 72 hours notice.

Mobile phones should be kept on silent or off during training.  


Photographs are permitted and can be used for advertising and learning purposes, however we cannot permit the use of video recording. The trainer will also take photographs that will be used for advertising purposes.


Majority of courses do not require models as students will work on themselves. These will be detailed with each course. If you cannot find a model or there is a valid reason for not being able to have the treatment, please let us know in advance. Students must be willing to undertake treatments on each other and come prepared as necessary (nails removed, no eye make up etc).
