Cancellations and refunds only apply if the person cancelling cannot/will not nominate another qualifying person to take their place.

  • 100% Refund: If cancelled more than 15 days in advance
  • 75% Refund: If cancelled 7-15 days in advance
  • 50% Refund: If cancelled less than 2-7 days in advance
  • 0% Refund: If cancelled less than 2 days in advance or a registered participant does not show up at the event
  • The amount refunded shall be the amount originally received by FairSay after credit card or international fees were deduced and the recipient is responsible for paying any baking fees incurred in refunding the amount.
  • Refunds may be dealt with after the event and once all fees have been received and expenses paid

Rescheduling a training

If a training/workshop is missed (e.g. due to sickness, bereavement, parental duties):

  • It may be rescheduled the next time the training is run within 12 months.
  • The first time it is missed, no additional cost will be charged.
  • The second time it is missed (and thus they are scheduled on a third date), a rescheduling fee of 25% of the course fee will be invoiced to cover the costs of catering, venue rental, logistics and trainer time.
  • If the invoice is unpaid, it will be re-issued at the rate for the re-scheduled training (for which no discounts will apply)
