Cancellations and non-attendance are subject to the table below. If payment has already been received by SDI, then no refund will be given.  


All refunds will be for the amount that SDI received (i.e., if you have deducted bank charges for example, this amount after the deduction of charges will be paid back to you).  



Customers may substitute the original delegate with another delegate at no extra charge. Written notification is required. 



You may change the date of a booked training course only once, however, transfers are subject to certain charges as per the below table. Written notification is required.

SDI’s training discount is only applicable if an organisation is a fully paid member of SDI at the time of training.  If the organisation is not a fully paid member of SDI at the time of training, then the non-member price for the training will be charged. 



All overseas delegates attending an SDI training course will be required to pay for their training course in advance by BACS or credit card. 



SDI reserves the right to amend training content, tutor, venue, time, date, published price or to cancel or postpone a training course. In addition, changing from an in-person course to a virtual training course. Any changes will be advised before the training course start date.
