Although Balance Global strive to offer the best prices, on occasion, as some courses are externally sourced, our prices may be above that of our suppliers. If you have purchased one of our courses and subsequently found it cheaper elsewhere, this reason alone, you will not be eligible for a refund.
Before you purchase a course from us, it is your responsibility to ensure that the course is right for you. Our website displays relevant information on all of the courses and moreover for some courses even demos are available. However, it is to be noted that by not having access to a demo, will not give rights for cancellation.
The detailed course information is designed to reduce the risk of you making the wrong choice. Read the course description and technical requirements. Access the sample course (where available) to check that the course will run on your PC and that you are comfortable with the depth and style of the course.
You can call one of our training advisors on +44 (0) 207 148 4782 to discuss courses and confirm the details you have seen on the website to make an informed decision on which course suits your personal requirements.
