  • With Dynamic Operations you can book a group course or individual placement on the course. In each case Dynamic Operations will require the name details of all participants willing to register.
  • Before booking onto the course, please ensure you have read the course content on the website, to ensure the course will meet your training needs and that you are able to meet pre-requisites, where stated.
  • If a course is booked by an individual other than the candidate(s), it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure the candidate(s) is/are suitable for the course and has the relevant experience.
  • We require in advance, for setup purposes, notification of any assistance that a student is likely to need during the running of the course.

Invoicing and payment

  • If any amount remains outstanding beyond the agreed date Dynamic Operations may:
    1. charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per annum above the base rate of Lloyds Bank PLC from time to time (which interest will accrue daily until the date of actual payment, be compounded quarterly, and be payable on demand); or

Any further training or coaching over and above that provided on the course may be charged for.
  • If you arrive late for a course or are absent from any session, we reserve the right to refuse to accept you for training if we feel you will gain insufficient knowledge or skill in the time remaining.
