Payment of Course Fees:
An invoice will be issued as soon as a booking confirmation is received and is payable a minimum of 14 days before the start date of the course.

If MTI have to cancel an event, our liability is limited to the return of the event fee.
If it is necessary for MTI to take action to recover an outstanding debt, you agree to indemnify us in respect of all costs incurred in this respect. You also agree to accept the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in any dispute arising from these terms and conditions.

There is no charge for cancellations notified 14 or more days prior to the event date. If a cancellation is made less than 14 days before the event date then the full fee is due and no fees will be refunded.
Participants are able to transfer their booking to a later event date free of charge up to and including 14 days prior to the event. Transfers of bookings made less than 14days prior to the event will result in a transfer fee of 25% of the course fee + VAT if applicable. Attempts to transfer bookings on or after the day of the event will be treated as a failure to attend and a transfer fee of 100% plus VAT will be payable. Substitute participants are permitted free of charge.
