You agree to attend and participate in the class at the event address, date and time.
You agree that you understand what type of course you are signing up for.
We can only commence with arrangements upon receipt of payment. Without payment we can not proceed to make the venue & catering arrangements, place our wholesale flower orders or prepare any course content for you.
We also reserve the right to make alterations to the structure of the course you booked, to optimise the flow of the course or for other operational reasons. In such a case, the same modules agreed upon will still be covered, but the order may be different.
All training is subject to our availability: Should you fail to book our services or request training during a time that we are already engaged in other training or events, we will not be able to render the service until such time that we are available.
This is an in-person course, not an online course. You are required to travel to the venue every day at your own cost and to attend in person at the venue booked for your one-on-one course.
Once we have your payment, we will immediately commence to source the right venue for your course and will communicate the address to you in writing.
Unless otherwise agreed, training runs from 09:00AM till 17:00PM daily.
Courses and course fees are subject to change should the dates changes as the course fee quoted to you is based on a specific date and flower prices around those dates.
All training is subject to our availability.
Payment reserves our availability for your course – no payment will result in no service.
Please pay on time to allow us time to book the venue, arrange catering, place wholesale flower orders, procure all the supplies for your one-on-one course.
Our preferred method of payment is via Payfast online. Payfast is a secure and safe way to pay online. We never see your banking or card details as the payment is handled through payfast. Payfast accepts instant EFT, Visa and Master Cards as well as some debit cards.
Paying off your course fee: We are not a credit approved institute and can not offer you credit, therefore all course fees must be paid before any service can commence. Should you need to take a loan for your course, we can recommend RCS as Payfast accepts RCS Group Store Cards for payment (or you might already have credit through one of the RCS Group Store Cards – see below – use that card to make payment).
Postponement by us: Should circumstances arise that result in us postponing the course/class ,we will offer the same course/class at a new future date. No no refunds will be given. There will be no course fee changes as long as the course takes place within 4 months. Should the course new date be pushed beyond 4 months you may be liable for a small course fee increase subject to flower price fluctuations. Please note that a postponed course is not a cancelled course – see below for cancelled courses.
Postponement by student: Should circumstances arise that result in you (the student) postponing the course/class, we will allow such a postponement as long as you have notified us well in advance. We do not allow course postponement requests in the 20 days prior to the course start date. Any postponement requests within the 20 days prior to the course start date will be seen as a course cancellation as we have already paid the bulk of your course fees on flower orders, venue and catering fees. We may not be able to recover such costs in the event that the date of the course is moved.
In the case you request a postponement, we will offer the same course/class at a new future date – no refunds will be given. Please note that a postponed course is not a cancelled course – see below for cancelled courses.
We may need to review the course fees depending on the venue changes, venue charges or penalties we have had to pay, flowers already ordered. A flat rate course postponement penalty of R 1500 will be due and this is to cover our admin costs for re-arranging the course.
All training is subject to our availability: Should you need to postpone the training, a new date are subject to our availability and must be agreed upon as soon as possible.
