Chambers Consulting should be provided in advance (and for setting up purposes) notification of any assistance that a student is likely to need during the running of a course. If Chambers Consulting decides that a student has not achieved the learning outcomes of the course and/or the assessment standard after the trainer has made adjustments & offered additional training to support the student (i.e. they are referred), then they will subsequently be offered a free reassessment and training.

7. The purchaser(the employer) acknowledges that if a student arrives late for a course or is absent from any session, Chambers Consulting reserves the right to refuse to accept the student for training, if it decides in its sole discretion that the student will gain insufficient knowledge or skill in the time remaining. In all such cases, the full course fee remains payable. To conform with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requirements for statutory certificates, attendance at all sessions is mandatory.
