Booking and Payment Arrangements

Bookings can be made by email: or by calling 07519 800899. Top Edge will send confirmation of booking by email at least two weeks before the course, or within two days of booking if within the two week period.

All payments must be made by cheque (payable to Top Edge Training), by cash or preferably through BACS.

Open Courses

Payment must be made in full at least one week before course.

Cancellation by Customer

There is no penalty if a place on an open course or an on-site booking is cancelled two weeks or more before the course.

50% of the fee will be charged if the booking is cancelled between one and two weeks before the course.

100% will be charged if the booking is cancelled within one week of the course. This policy is waived when the course is full and the cancelled place has been filled.

Should a customer wish to cancel their open course booking, it can be filled by a replacement if arranged by the customer.

Cancellation by Top Edge

In exceptional circumstances, a course may need to be cancelled or rescheduled.  We reserve the right to cancel a course at any time and offer a reasonable alternative date and venue, or issue a credit or a refund without any liability for consequential or indirect loss. 

In the event of a course being cancelled, customers will be contacted and given as much notice as possible and by two weeks prior to the course starting at the latest, unless cancellation is due to unforeseen and exceptional circumstances. 

We must emphasise that a course cancellation by Top Edge Training is exceptional and would always be a last resort.

Waiting List

If the course has been fully booked, we will collect contact details regarding any further bookings and will offer any cancelled places on a first come first served basis.
