CALAT reserves the right to amalgamate, change the location, tutor, date, or cancel a course if enrolments are too few or in any other exceptional circumstance. We will try to find you a suitable alternative or refund the full cost by cheque. Refunds will only be given under the fourteen day cooling off period, or to learners with medical conditions on completion of the refund form (please refer to CALAT Refunds & transfer policy.) N.B. Refunds under medical conditions are subject to a £20.00 admin fee. Any request for a refund must be made within three months from your last date of attending the course.

CALAT occasionally has to re-schedule a class due to unforeseen circumstances. Arrangements would be made to suit the majority of the class and availability of suitable accommodation. On request the learner would be entitled to a refund in vouchers to the value of the session/s missed in circumstances where a rearranged class is not convenient for them to attend. The request must be made within three months of the re-scheduled class.
