These terms and conditions apply regardless of where the training was booked from and applies to all training. The words ‘Adventures with Agile’, ‘AWA Global’, ‘Coding Powers Ltd’ are implied to be the same selling entity and used interchangeably. These terms also apply to training booked through Bryter Work Ltd, our consultancy and coaching UK Ltd company.
If no other terms are provided, these terms will also govern our non-UK based partners. If those partners have provided you with terms, those may be used instead of these. Where it is unclear, these terms supercede all others.
Events, Training and Coaching Terms and Conditions
Booking for workshops, training and other events run by AWA Global implies acceptance of these terms and conditions.
These terms shall prevail over any terms put forward by you, unless we expressly agree to them in writing. No conduct by us, our employees or our associates shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of any terms put forward by you. Terms and conditions may be updated from time to time and will apply from the date of publication on the website. Any variations for specific events will be specified in the web materials publicising the events.
Bookings and Payment
Acceptance of bookings is subject to availability, suitability for the programme and other conditions that Adventures with Agile may set for any specific event. Registered bookings are confirmed subject to payment in advance, either by credit card or by the date specified on the invoice. Bookings for which payment is not received by the due date may be subject to cancellation by AWA Global.
All AWA courses that take place in the UK are subject to UK VAT at the standard rate. For courses outside the UK, VAT may be payable according to the regulations in that country, please see the individual course registration page for confirmation.
Customers from outside the UK who are attending our UK courses will be charged VAT at the standard rate. This is because our public training courses are considered to be educational seminars or events and so not subject to the general rule and thus the Place of Supply is considered to be the UK. It may be possible for customers outside the UK to reclaim the VAT paid and we advise you to seek advice from an accountant.
Discount policy will differ between events and will be as described on our web or printed material for each event.
Discounts cannot be applied following a purchase.
No more than one discount may be applied per order.
The loyalty discount code is not available to use on self-pay, super early bird, some early bird, or training pass options.
Training Pass Payment Plan
We can accommodate a training payment plan that is flexible to support budgets. The payment plan is structured so that an agreed portion of the overall price is paid before each course is taken. Training needs to be paid for in full by the time the last course is taken. Payments can be split across instalments over a set time period either as a monthly direct debit up to a maximum of 6 months or via 3 separate payments (via Bank Transfer).The Direct Debit option will require a non-refundable deposit upon booking and is only available to UK customers.
If you have planned to attend one of the courses in the training pass but need to to switch to a course at a later date you will need to contact the team 4 weeks before the course’s start date.
If you cancel one or more of the courses, the discounted rate will be updated to reflect the change in price that will be incurred due to the course being removed from the training pass and the payment charges will be updated to reflect this change. Cancellations for courses will need to be paid 4 weeks before the start of the course.
If you cancel all of the courses in the training pass except one, the discount will be removed to reflect this change and payment terms will be updated to reflect this change.
If you want to change the date of the course you are attending to a later date you will need to inform AWA by 4 weeks before the course is due to start.
If for some reason you do not inform us of changes within the agreed time frames you will be liable to pay for the full training pass amount.
If for some reason, we have to cancel the course, participants will get a full refund. We need a minimum amount of people to make it feasible. We will not be liable for any travel costs incurred by participants if a course is cancelled. Please wait until 1 week before the course to book travel, or contact us to find out the status of a course.
If a participant wishes to cancel a place, they may do so and receive a full refund minus any transaction fees up until 1 calendar month before the course. We are able to offer a 50% refund up until 2 weeks before the course. After this period we are unable to offer a refund as we will have committed to costs for the participant’s place.
If however a participant finds someone else that is suitable to take their place then we would offer a refund at any time, minus any costs incurred with the transaction.
You can transfer your place to another course of the same type (e.g Certified Scrum Master to Certified Scrum Master) before the course runs, transfer fees apply as follows:
Transfers requested over one calendar month before the course start date are free of charge.
Transfers requested within one calendar month before the course start date are subject to a £150 admin fee for one and two day courses, a £250 fee for courses of three days, and £350 for courses of 5 days.
Transfers requested 7 days or less before the course start date are subject to 50% of the original price paid.
If you are unable to attend a course on the day then you may transfer at 50% of the original price paid.
For industrial action, and any other action that happens locally, we go on the principal that if the trainer is able to attend, then standard transfer policy is in place, if the trainer could also not attend, we will attempt to run the course online, and then if that is not possible, we will postpone until the earliest possible convenience.
All transfer fees are subject to VAT.
Cohort and subscription programs
All cohort and subscription based programs are non-refundable once the program has started and subject to the cancellation and transfer fees above.
ICF Program attendance
In order to provide you with the minimum required training hours for certification, it is important that you are present at all course sessions.
If you have an emergency or become ill and are not able to attend a coaching session, please contact your instructor and (AWA representative) immediately. You will be expected to complete the session materials, review the session recording, and complete a coaching session outside the live session to make up for the missed session.
If you need to miss more than 3 hours of the course, you will have the option to work with the instructor to cover the missed material at your own expense or register for another course.
If you miss more than 1)hours of mentor coaching, you will need to arrange and pay for individual mentor coaching sessions to complete the required 10 hours of mentor coaching to satisfy the International Coaching federation requirements.
Petitions to this policy are considered on a case-by-case basis and must be submitted in writing to the instructor and (AWA).
One to One Coaching
Coaching sessions are booked in blocks of six and paid for in advance. Coaching sessions take place via zoom. Coachees must give 48 hours notice for cancellation of a scheduled session otherwise the full fee for that session will be charged.
Courses advertised to run in-person may be subject to change if government restrictions in that location are changed to mean that the course can no longer run as advertised. All delegates can transfer to an online version of the course and receive a refund for the difference if the online course is cheaper, or receive a full refund.
Attendance: In our online training each live, experiential online workshop builds on the last. Attendance at – and active engagement in – all workshops is expected.
You will need to:
- Have a good internet connection
- Have a webcam that is turned on
- Be able to use Slack and Zoom (at least 10 Mbps download / upload)
- Be in a quiet space where you can speak freely
- One person, one device
The programmes for our workshops, training and other events are correct at the time of publication. We reserve the right to change programmes without notice.
On occasion we may have to change the venue to a different location to the one advertised. We reserve the right to change this and will inform participants via email.
We also reserve the right to change the trainer. This usually only occurs in the case of an emergency or the trainer is too ill to attend. We appreciate that some times places are booked because of a particular trainer however if that trainer is unable to attend due to an emergency and a different trainer starts or continues a course, we are unable to offer a refund.
If a course has pre-requisites, it is the participant’s responsibility to ensure they are suitably qualified to attend the course. Refunds will not be made if the participant cannot complete the course due to finding it too difficult, or if the course leader thinks they cannot stay on due to not achieving the required pre-requisites.
Contact details for participants and ticket buyers will be kept strictly private and will be shared only with the course trainer and AWA Global.
