1. GENERAL TERMS
These terms govern all training provided by Fronting the Challenge Projects Ltd (Thrive) to the exclusion of any terms imposed or proposed by you, the client. All communications, including joining instructions, will normally be sent to delegates by email.
So as to be clear, the following phrases shall have the following meanings in these Terms:
Course Start Date: the date upon which you or your delegates receive the e-learning materials, printed material or undertake shadowing (whichever is first) or, if none, the date of the first training session.
Commissioned Courses: Courses that are provided at your request for your nominated delegates.
Open-Access Courses: Courses open to Thrive members generally.
Once we confirm a booking, whether verbally or in writing (including email, letter & online confirmations) an agreement will be formed between us. The fee (together with VAT if appropriate) will then be invoiced with payment terms below.
4. PAYMENT TERMS
Commissioned Courses: Invoices will be issued in advance of the Course Start Date and payment is due within 30 days of the invoice date or before the course start date, if sooner. Payment must be made before the start of any course.
Open-Access Courses: Payment is due on confirmation of your order and should be received by us at least 14 days prior to the Course Start Date. If the booking is made within 14 days of the Course Start Date, then payment needs to be made immediately.
Payment Method: Payment should be made directly to our bank account using the details on our invoice and quoting the invoice number. Cheques should be made payable to Fronting the Challenge Projects Ltd.
Late Payment: We reserve the right to withdraw any discount offered and/or to levy a late payment charge, calculated at the rate shown on the invoice, if payment is received outside these terms.
5. PREPARATION FOR THE COURSE
5.1 You accept that it is your responsibility to verify that each of your delegates have the necessary level of competence to be able to achieve the objectives of the course.
5.2 You are responsible for ensuring that all your delegates have an adequate internet connection to support video conferencing and that their access to a Zoom conference is not restricted by a firewall or port settings.
5.3 For PHT courses only - the completed delegate form must be returned 10 working days ahead of the start of the course, failure to do so will result in a admin fee being charged. Delegates can be added ahead of the start date and will be invoiced accordingly, however numbers cannot be decreased once set, with the minimum being 8.

When cancellation is unavoidable, Thrive will refund, in full, all monies paid, or at your option, apply all monies to a rescheduled or alternative course.
7.1 For any commissioned course bookings, including PHT courses, where the price agreed is based on a set number of delegates, we reserve the right to charge you a Cancellation fee in the event that you cancel or postpone the provision of our Services prior to the Course Start Date, or during the course of training, as set out in this table.
