Digitally downloaded courses

  • Online courses have no time limit for completion. 

  • Online courses are non-refundable. Our content has a value that can be accessed immediately upon purchase. As the content cannot be guaranteed to be removed from your pc/laptop/tablet/smartphone, and hard copies can be created, our product has been provided and the transaction complete.

  • All content within online courses remains the property of Serenity, and is therefore not allowed to be reproduced in any form for anything other than personal use.
     

Insurance

  • All our courses are accredited by The Guild of Holistic Therapists.

  • Following completion of your course, you will receive a certificate. This will allow you to gain insurance to practice the therapy you are trained in.

  • It is the responsibility of the student to check with their current insurer that the course will be accepted for insurance purposes, prior to enrolling.

Professional standards

  • Serenity Holistic Training teaches its courses to a high standard and reserves the right to withhold certification until it feels a student has reached standards set and discussed during the training. Should a student not meet those standards after the first assessment, a reassessment can be booked. No extra charge will be made for this, though a refundable £10 deposit will be required. A 7 day cancellation policy applies to assessment deposits.
    We will happily reassess students multiple times until we feel that they have reached the required standards of competence.

  • A deposit of £10 may be required to secure an assessment date. This is fully refunded when attending the agreed date. Should a student not attend, the deposit will be kept to cover our costs. Should a deposit not be paid at the time of booking an assessment, and a late cancellation occurs, a fixed fee of £10 will be charged for future assessment bookings will be made. This is non-refundable. Assessment deposits are applicable for pre-assessment sessions also.

  • The training on each course is valid for 12 months from the first day of training. A final assessment should ideally be completed within that time if required by the course. Should a student be unable to pass the assessment within 12 months, refreshers on training may be required, at a cost of £20 per hour. 

  • Assessments booked after the 12 months validity of the training, will incur a non-refundable £10 charge.

Attending the course

  • Students will be expected to turn up 10 minutes before the commencement of the course. This is to ensure you have time to familiarise yourself with your surroundings, discuss any concerns and grab a drink!

  • Students are expected to be dressed appropriately, according to the information sent before the course date by email. 

  • Finishing times will already have been agreed and you will be expected to stay until that time unless otherwise discussed prior to the training day.
