To guarantee places on one of our (BKS Training) courses, the course fees need to be paid in full, or pre-arranged amount before the course date
Places maybe reserved without paying in advance, but a premium price is due on the first day of training. However this is not a guaranteed place(s) on the course, and maybe turned away if course is already full or through the limitations of the study environment. Infrequent as this is, BKS Training does try and resolve all matters in this manner suitably.
Where discounted prices are offered, these are subject to full or partial payment before the course date.
Payment can be made by Cheque (Must Clear Prior to course), Bank Transfer or via PayPal on the Website booking page
BKS Training reserves the right to change the prices of its services without notice; however we will attempt to inform learners at the nearest possible opportunity. Delegates booked onto a course and paid part or full in advance will pay the less of the two prices
If training venue or other a like items change, BKS Training will attempt to inform learners at the nearest possible opportunity.
It is a Security Industry Authority (SIA) requirement that the trainer conducts an English assessment of the learner(s) before the start of the course.
