Terms and Conditions
Crisp Open Course Terms & Conditions
We want your course booking with us to run as smoothly as possible. In order for us to provide a great level of service to all of our clients and delegates, we have some terms and conditions that you will need to agree to when booking. These terms and conditions offer a level of protection to both you and our business.
These terms and conditions apply to Crisp Professional Development (Crisp) open course bookings and refer to all public course registrations including GROW, ILM and Learning Passport bookings.
1. Booking an Open Course
Please ensure that you have read, understood and accepted the conditions of booking before you submit a course booking. By placing a booking, you will be deemed to have read, understood and accepted these terms and conditions, therefore entering into a contract.
Booking a place on an Open Course can be done in the following ways;
- Via our Website: https://www.crisp-cpd.com/ - Click on Our Services, then Upcoming Open Courses, click on course, scroll down to available dates and click on Booking Details to enter delegate details. Or use the search function top right of page.
- By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you’d like to check availability of a course or want to make an ILM or Learning Passport booking, please call us on 01392 409198
N.B. Please ensure that you/your delegate can commit to course date(s) selected and familiarise yourself with our Cancellation/Transfer policies in section 3.
When booking via our website, payment can be made immediately by Credit/Debit Card. You can also select the invoice option for other payment methods. An invoice and course joining instructions will be emailed to you automatically after booking. Your booking is then classed as a confirmed booking and terms and conditions herein apply. Although your booking will be classed as confirmed, your place on the course selected will be provisional until payment has been received.
It is the responsibility of the booker to forward the invoice to their finance department for payment, and to provide Crisp with a Purchase Order if one is required. Please ensure Crisp has been provided with current company accounts payable details including email address. Please email POs to email@example.com and we can re-issue the invoice quoting the PO number if required.
Making a course booking constitutes a binding contract according to our terms and conditions herein.
Full payment must be received within 30 days of booking or before the course start date; whichever is soonest.
If payment cannot be made within this timescale, the course booker must contact us in writing to let us know.
Payment can be made by Credit/Debit card at the time of booking, or you can select Invoice payment. Should you wish to pay by Credit Card after booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crisp reserves the right to refuse course admission if payment has not been received prior to the course date and our Cancellation Policy shall apply.
Late payments will incur a late payment charge of 10% and you may forfeit your place on the course.
Where an invoice becomes substantially late, we reserve the right to pass your account to a debt collection agency. When the need for this arises, the agency will add their fees and charges to the invoice which will become your responsibility to pay.

5. Cancellation/Alterations to Course Contents, Dates, Venue, Fees or Trainer
Crisp reserves the right to alter or cancel courses without liability. We undertake to provide reasonable notice of any change or cancellation except in the case of an emergency. In the rare event of Crisp cancelling a course, and where an alternative cannot be provided, the booker will be entitled to a refund of fees paid to Crisp (or keep a course credit on their account), but shall not otherwise be entitled to compensation, costs or damages arising from such a cancellation or change. We will do our utmost to accommodate delegates on to a suitable alternative course/date.
Crisp reserves the right to provide a substitute trainer without notice. Crisp seeks to ensure that the course contents are continually reviewed and kept up to date. This may result in some alterations to the published contents. Crisp reserves the right to make amendments to published course contents without notice.
All fees are subject to change and can be altered at any time prior to booking.
