These Terms and Conditions (‘Terms’) apply to the provision of training courses by Waterfront Dental Education Limited. Please read these Terms carefully before enrolling on a training course. References in these Terms to ‘you’ and ‘your’ refer to you, the delegate; to ‘Waterfront Dental Education’, ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ refer to Waterfront Dental Education; and to our ‘website’ are to our website at www.waterfrontdentaleducation.co.uk.
Payment of the Registration Fee indicates that you accept the following Terms and upon payment of the Registration Fee, a business to business contract shall be formed between you and us on the following Terms in respect of the provision of the training course which incorporates these Terms and Conditions.
We provide the following training courses:
We shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Courses take place on the advertised dates and times. However, we reserve the right to change the dates, topics and/or speakers of the Courses from those advertised and will inform you as soon as practicable of such changes by e-mail or telephone.
Each Course Day or Course Day plus presentation material stands alone as a separate deliverable module which has CPD value. We reserve the right to increase or decrease the number of modules which comprise the Course at any time.
Short Course fees are payable in advance of the Course in order to register for the Course and secure your place. Course Fee payments can be made by bank transfer, credit card or debit card, online payment through the website or by telephone. Online Payments are administered by our online payment partners Worldpay Ltd.
A registration fee which is equivalent to the fees for the first Course Day is payable in advance to register for Short Courses. Payment in full of the Short Course Fees is required in advance of the course start date.
A registration fee (which is equivalent to the fees for the first Course Day) is required in advance, to enrol on a Year Course (inclusive of VAT) (“Registration Fee”). The Registration Fee ensures your seat on the course is reserved.
It also provides you with access to our web platform through which you will be able to access study materials where appropriate and available (where applicable).
Registration Fee payments can be made by bank transfer, credit card or debit card. Waterfront Dental Education delivers Course Days/modules which stand alone.
In the event that Waterfront Dental Education is unable to complete delivery of the remaining Course Days/modules scheduled within a Year Course, those Course Days/modules so far delivered will constitute the entirety of the “Year Course”. No refunds will be due for Course Days/module previously delivered. There will be no obligation on Waterfront Dental Education to complete the remaining Course Days identified in the Course programme.
Verifiable CPD hours will be issued for the Course modules/days attended.
You agree to pay the Course Fees for the relevant Training Course to Waterfront Dental Education Ltd. The ‘Course Fees’ for the Courses set out on our website or as advised in the booking confirmation are payable as follows:
The total fees payable for the Year Course shall be the total Course Fees payable in respect of all of the Course Days (whether you attend such Course Days or not) (‘Total Course Fees’), which are payable in accordance with the provisions set out below. The Course Fee includes a light lunch and refreshments throughout each Course Day. If you have any specific dietary requirements we will always try our best to accommodate. However, there is no guarantee.
In the unlikely event that, due to a technical error, the amount of any of the Course Fees on the website is incorrect, we will notify you as soon as we reasonably can. In these circumstances, we reserve the right to charge a different amount from that ‘advertised’.
If you are eligible to receive any sponsorship or funding, you are responsible for arranging this. We can provide proof of attendance at a Training Course if required but you are still required to pay the Course Fees to Waterfront Dental Education Ltd whether or not such sponsorship or funding has been received.
All regular payments must be paid prior to you attending each Course Day. If for any reason payment is not made by Standing Order by the due date, payment of the Course fees for that month will become due immediately and must be received in advance of attendance on the actual Course date.
In the event that money is not received in advance of the Course Day we may pursue remedies as set out in ‘Year Courses – Options for Payment’ below.
Payment in no more than ten monthly instalments, such monthly payment amount being calculated to cover the cost of the outstanding Course Fees (after deducting the Registration Fee from the Total Course Fees). We will notify you of the Monthly Payment Amounts and the number of monthly payments. All amounts will be repayable within 10 months from the start of the course via standing order.
If any monthly payment is cancelled, required to be resubmitted, or is late, we will notify you by email you to request immediate payment. If the amount owing is not repaid within five working days, we will apply a late fee of £25 to the monthly payment to cover our additional administration costs.
The Monthly Payment Amount is due on each day specified in your payment plan whether you chose to attend the Course Day(s) or not. In the event that any Monthly Payment Amount is outstanding for more than seven (7) days, we may (without prejudice to any other rights or remedies we may have) do all or any of the following:
cease to provide the remaining Course Days to you and terminate our contract with you;
Payment in full of the Total Course Fees (by BACS payment only) prior to commencement of the Year Course. Payment in full in advance of the Course will not be accepted by Credit or Debit Cards.
Waterfront Dental Education manages post graduate course, these courses are for qualified Dentists. Waterfront Dental Education reserves the right to request evidence of graduation and registration with local dental council e.g. General Dental Council in UK.
In the event that you have registered for a live patient course, you are responsible for your own professional indemnity. Waterfront Dental Education reserves the right to request evidence of professional indemnity.
Demand for our Courses is high and we provide quality Courses by limiting the number of delegates on each stream. In fairness to other delegates who want to be able to join our Courses we operate a cancellation charge policy.
You may cancel your booking up to 7 days (“cooling-off period”) after the date upon which you pay the Registration Fee provided that no Course Days of your chosen Course have been delivered during this period. If you cancel during the cooling-off period and no Course Days have been delivered, you will receive a full refund of your Registration Fee together with any other amounts which you have paid to us in respect of fees.
Refunds will be paid by bank transfer within 21 working days. If a Course Day has been delivered during the cooling-off period then your Registration Fee will not be refunded. Any refunds of fees paid after the cooling-off period will be dealt with in accordance with our cancellation policy. Following the cooling off period, the cancellation policy below applies. If you cancel before the Course starts fees will be chargeable as set out in the table below:
|Weeks Prior to Course Start Date||Cancellation Charge as % of Total Course Fees|
|Between end of “cooling off period” and > 12 weeks||Charge 20% of Total Course Fees|
|< 12 weeks > 8 Weeks||Charge 35% of Total Course Fees|
|< 8 weeks > 4 weeks||Charge 50% of Total Course Fees|
|< 4 weeks||Charge 100% of Total Course Fees|
“Total Course Fees” means the total amount paid and due to be paid by you in respect of Course Fees (less the Registration Fee which is non-refundable after the cooling-off period).
Refunds of Course Fees for Short Courses will not be given if you cancel or are unable to attend the Short Course. If requested, we will use reasonable endeavours to re-place you on an alternative Short Course, subject always to availability. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee there will be space on a particular Short Course as places on the Courses are limited.
We cannot guarantee how much notice we will be able to give you that a place on a Short Course has become available – e.g. we may have a cancellation the day before which enables you attend. If we re- place you on an alternative Short Course then the Course Fee already paid by you will be applied towards the Course Fee for the alternative Short Course.
We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £25 in respect of the costs we will incur in re-placing you on the alternative Short Course.
Subject to the following provisions of this section, refunds of Course Fees for Year Courses will not be given if you cancel or are unable to attend the Year Course once you have enrolled on the Course.
You will remain responsible for payment of the Total Course Fees. If you provide a suitable replacement who is prepared to take over your obligations to us on the Year Course, we will refund any Course Fees paid by you in advance, minus an administration fee of £25.
In the event that you are unable to provide a replacement for your attendance on the Course, the cancellation policy at section 4 will be enforced. Once your Course has started, refunds of Course Fees will not be given if you cancel or are unable to attend one or more of the Course Days.
If requested, we will use reasonable endeavours to place you on an alternative Course Day, subject always to availability. Owing to the nature of our business, we cannot guarantee:
If we place you on an alternative Course Day, then the Course Fees paid by you for the original Course Day will be applied towards the Course Fees for the alternative Course Day. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £25 in respect of the costs we will incur in replacing you on another Course Day. All other refunds are at the sole discretion of Waterfront Dental Education Limited.
Enhanced CPD certificates require attendance on all contact days and submission of course assessments where appropriate. You are responsible for submission of assessments and incase of any queries or delayed should contact the Course Coordinator or Lecturer of the course day.
You are responsible for any loss of or damage which you cause to any equipment or property of either Waterfront Dental Education or belonging to the venues which we use other than that caused by fair wear and tear and you will bear the cost of repair, or replacement of, such property. We reserve the right to charge the whole delegate group for malicious damage caused by any member(s) of a delegate group in the event that the perpetrator(s) of the damage do not admit individual responsibility.
