Why do we ask for payment in advance?
We are often asked why we ask for application forms and fee in advance. The primary reason is that we need to book a venue. We employ top venues that are comfortable, warm, designed for lectures and training, with presentation facilities/equipment. They usually have a cancellation policy so we need to have course numbers in order to avoid cancellation fees.
We also need to make our preparations for training. Such as……
- Needles and other practical materials need to be purchased and prepared.
- Plinths or couches,
- Sets of notes need to be prepared and printed
- Examination questions and answer sheets need to be printed and prepared
- Certificates of Attendance need to be printed and signed, when there is no examination
- Course content needs to be changed to reflect any current research developments.
