The cost of tuition is as stated for each of the individual courses as listed. All course fees must be paid in full in accordance with the terms stated. A registration form must be completed and accompanied by a deposit before a reservation on the course will be confirmed.
All deposits are non-refundable under any circumstances. The balance of the course must be paid before the commencement of all courses. Should a student cancel their booking within 28 days of the commencement date of the course, the Dog Grooming Training Academy will endeavour to sell that place to another student, failing which all fees will be forfeited and any outstanding balance will become due immediately.
Courses are tailored to suit the student and an attendance schedule will be confirmed when booking a place on a course. The required guided learning hours must be completed for all nationally recognised qualifications. Should a student be unable to attend an agreed training day the following fees will apply:-
72hrs or more notice of needing to rearrange a training day – £35 admin fee.
Theory sessions are booked in advance. Any missed sessions will result in the work being emailed to you for completion from home.
The proprietors of the Dog Grooming Training Academy reserve the right to refuse to accept a student for whom they feel any course is unsuitable. No reason for such a decision may be given.
Students are expected to be punctual and co-operate with colleagues so as to ensure the smooth running and congenial atmosphere of the salon throughout the duration of the course. Courses begin at 09:30hrs and finish at 16:30hrs each day.
In the event of any course having to be cancelled by the Dog Grooming Training Academy before completion, for whatever reason, participating students will be offered a refund proportionate to the time lost, or offered the opportunity to continue the course at a time mutually agreed.
In the event of any course having to be cancelled by the Dog Grooming Training Academy prior to the starting date, for whatever reason, a full refund will be made to the student.

The Dog Grooming Training Academy would like to advise all students to ensure their tetanus vaccinations are up to date. The Dog Grooming Training Academy will not be held liable for any mishap that may arise as a result of any student not having done so.
Students completing a qualification and are expected to keep up to date with any assignments and complete all paperwork within the required timescales.

In respect of OCN should a student be required to retake either the practical assessment or the theory exam a further charge will apply. Qualification must be completed within the set registration time period.
Students are asked to give details of any medical conditions, disabilities or allergies. Dog grooming is a physically demanding job and involves standing for long periods and some lifting.
