If a candidate has accessed their online training but does not feel that the course is for them, we would only be able to change the user's name to someone else who may wish to do the course.

If you are unable to attend an alternative person can attend in your subject as long as the replacement person has the required experience or qualifications for the course and prior agreement has been made with Progreen. No charges will be made for this if the course is wholly run by Progreen.
We reserve the right to change the timings, content date, venue and instructor of the course at any time. Cancellation of the course can be taken at any time up to and including the date of the course if insufficient bookings have been received or due to unforeseen circumstances. Progreen where possible will aim to give as much forward notice of any cancellations and endeavour to re-arrange the course where possible. Where Progreen have cancelled the course attendees will be given the option to a full refund or to reschedule to a suitable course in the future but does not accept any further liability.
