Learning Tree International Commercial Terms and Conditions

Learning Tree International limits the provision of its educational services to employees of corporations, partnerships and government organizations who are sponsored by their respective organizations. This agreement is between Learning Tree International and the employer.

GUARANTEE OF QUALITY

Our Guarantee of Quality provides our customers the opportunity to attend the course of their choice – and then pay only if 100% satisfied with the value of the course. If a customer sends us a written notice of dissatisfaction with a course within 14 days of the course start date, the customer will have the option of retaking the course at no charge; applying prepaid tuition fees against another course attendance; or receiving a full refund of any course tuition paid and cancellation of any unpaid invoices for that course. If a customer used a Training Passport or a Training Voucher for the course, we will not count the attendance against the Training Passport or Training Voucher used.

COURSE TUITION

The course tuition must be paid in full prior to attendance or the granting of customer access to the course. Any and all applicable taxes will be invoiced. In the case of the Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher Program, payment for each Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher is due upon invoice receipt. The course tuition includes instruction; course materials; the use of software, computers and other technical hardware as appropriate to the course; and Learning Tree Certification Examinations. Learning Tree International also provides light refreshments during morning and afternoon breaks. The course tuition does not include sleeping rooms, meals, travel or any other expenses that may be incurred by our customer.

SUBSTITUTIONS PERMITTED

We welcome the enrollment of a qualified substitute in an enrollee’s place, provided the customer notifies us in writing before the first day of the course (excludes PRINCE2®, ITIL®, COBIT®, MSP® and Change Management courses). 100% of any prepaid course tuition will be credited against the course tuition fee of the substitute. However, the substitute may not take advantage of any discount program for which he or she is not otherwise qualified. Training Passports are nontransferable and therefore are not eligible for substitution. Substitutions for On-Demand Courses are excluded.

ONSITE CANCELLATION POLICY

If a customer needs to cancel or reschedule any event less than 16 days before the scheduled start of the event, the customer will be subject to a cancellation fee in the amount of 50% of the event fee. However, if the event is rescheduled to execute within ninety (90) days of the cancellation date, then a cancellation fee in the amount of 25% of the event fee will apply. Learning Tree will not impose any penalty if the customer notifies Learning Tree of the need to cancel or reschedule an event 16 days prior to the scheduled start date of the event. Any event cancelled or rescheduled that is non-standard in length, content, delivery method, etc., based on customer requirements and request, and the customer cancels the course, the customer will pay for all incurred customization fees, or performance costs associated with the event.

FLEXIBLE TRANSFER/CANCELLATION POLICY FOR PUBLIC COURSES

Cancellations or transfers may be made without any penalty no later than fifteen days before the course start date. If a customer transfers to another course prior to fifteen days before the start date 100% of any prepaid tuition fees will be applied toward the fee for the subsequent course. If a customer transfers or cancels within fifteen days of the course start date a fee equal to 100% of the course tuition fee will be due and payable for standard attendances. Attendances associated with a Learning Tree program will be assessed a cancellation or transfer fee of $500. Training Passports, FlexVouchers and Pay-As-You-Learn Vouchers cannot be used after their expiration dates, and a course cancellation or transfer by the customer will not extend a Training Passport, FlexVoucher Pack or Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher Pack expiration date.

PREMIUM COURSES

Learning Tree Premium Course is any course that includes 3rd party materials, exam vouchers, certifications, specialized instructors, special software licenses, or premium labs and course kits. A course could have one or all of these attributes to be considered a Premium Class. The cost to execute these courses are higher than our standard Public Courses. Learning Tree reserves the right to designate courses as Premium based on these or other high costs associated with executing these events.

ON-DEMAND COURSES

Customers must prepay for On-Demand Courses prior to access being granted by Learning Tree. On-Demand Courses are not cancellable by the customer and are non-refundable.

LEARNING TREE COACHING

Learning Tree Coaching is a program designed to “bridge the gap” between classroom training and the workplace. The coaching is done at the workplace as a one-day extension immediately following completion of a Learning Tree On-Site Course. The instructor helps course attendees put into practice the knowledge gained in the course to tackle real projects or assignments, as well as services to redefine job roles, update competencies and define additional skills gaps.

TRAINING PASSPORTS

Training Passports (i) are nontransferable and can only be used to pay course tuition fees for the named holder and (ii) cannot be used to attend courses that are either in excess of the specified number of courses or which start more than 12 months after the start date of the first course attended under that 3-Course Training Passport, or which start more than 24 months after the start date of the first course attended under the 4-Course Training Passport. If a customer purchases a Training Passport and cancels prior to its expiration, we will refund 100% of the difference between the price paid for the Training Passport and the sum of the standard full tuition for each of the courses the customer attended using that Training Passport. Learning Tree reserves the right to exclude certain courses from eligibility in the Passport Program.

FLEXVOUCHER PACKS

FlexVoucher Pack agreements are purchase arrangements that provide discounts based on the initial committed volume of the customer purchase. FlexVouchers are transferable within an organization and can be used to pay for the attendance of any qualified course participant. Customers may attend as many courses covered by the value of the FlexVoucher Pack purchase. The FlexVoucher Pack sales are final and non-refundable, with a start date beginning on the earlier of the first course attended or 30 days after the purchase date and an expiration of 12 months after the start date.  Learning Tree reserves the right to exclude certain courses from eligibility in the FlexVoucher program or require more than one voucher for certain premium courses.

PAY-AS-YOU-LEARN VOUCHER PROGRAM

Pay-As-You-Learn Vouchers are offered for Public Courses only in 25-course packs or greater. A commitment to purchase a minimum number of 25 Pay-As-You-Learn Vouchers within a twelve (12) month period is required and must be confirmed in writing via a Purchase Order (PO) or equivalent. The agreement is for one (1) year renewable on an annual basis and the committed Pay-As-You-Learn Vouchers must be used within twelve (12) months from the start date of the first course attended under that Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher Pack, otherwise, pricing expires on the renewal date. The Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher is transferable and a qualified substitute will be allowed to attend in the enrollee’s place. This substitution can be made at any time prior to the first day of the course. Learning Tree reserves the right to exclude certain courses from eligibility in the Pay-As-You-Learn Voucher Program.

BLENDED LEARNING PROGRAM

The Blended Learning Programs provide access to a blend of training, support, and other 3rd party materials offered within a subscription period.  The subscription period and components associated with each program will vary based on the specific program being offered and selected for purchase. The agreement is on a subscription basis for each attendee, and purchases under the program are non-transferable and non-refundable.  Once the subscription is paid in full, or a purchase order is accepted, the attendee can access all program components during the subscription period. 

PREMIUM TRAINING BUNDLE PROGRAM

The Premium Training Bundle Program offers an additional level of enhanced access, including unlimited access to a multi-day course, additional training, support, and other 3rd party materials offered within a subscription period.  The subscription period and components associated with each program will vary based on the specific program being offered and selected for purchase. The agreement is on a subscription basis for each attendee, and purchases under the program are non-refundable.  Once the subscription is paid in full, or a purchase order is accepted, the attendee can access all program components during the subscription period. 

TERMS FOR ROOM RENTALS

Learning Tree International Room Rentals are subject to the Terms and Conditions of the Room Rental Agreement executed prior to the start of the room rental.

ACCOMMODATION FOR DISABILITIES

We are committed to complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws regarding reasonable accommodations for course participants with disabilities. Accommodations should be requested by a course participant’s employer, preferably in writing. In order to plan for and provide effective accommodations, we ask that accommodations be requested as early as possible, and no later than two weeks before the start of the course. Learning Tree will provide an additional seat in the classroom and a full digital set of course materials for an auxiliary aide upon request. Other requested accommodations will be discussed with a course participant’s employer. Accommodations that fundamentally alter the nature of the services being provided, jeopardize safe operations, or result in undue hardship may not be available. Please call 1-800-843-8733 to advise Learning Tree of any need for accommodation.

SECURITY

The customer agrees that all course participants will abide by security measures in effect at the course location.

COURSE POSTPONEMENTS

At times, we must change a course location, course date or postpone a course. We will try to give the customer as much advance notice as possible of any such change. If the customer is unable to attend the revised location or date, we will credit 100% of any prepaid course tuition fees paid against a future course or, if requested, refund those fees. Changes in course locations, course dates or the postponement of courses will not extend any existing expiration date of underlying offers. Learning Tree International's sole liability will be limited to any fees paid to the course in question and Learning Tree International shall not be responsible for any incidental or consequential loss arising whatsoever.
