A summary of our terms and conditions relating to all commercial training
Please note that if your company has a national account contract, alternative terms and conditions may apply.

- First transfer, made more than four weeks prior to the course start date – no charge
- Two to four weeks notice given – 25% of the course fee
- Less than two weeks notice given – 50% of the course fee.
All transfers must be taken within a period of six months from the original date.

Should circumstances mean that you have to cancel your course and are unable to transfer your booking to another date at the time of cancellation, the following charges will apply:
- More than four weeks prior to the course start date – no charge
- Two to four weeks prior to the course – 50% of the course fee
- Less than two weeks prior to the course – full fee.
NB Cancellation must be made in writing and received by Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd by the payment due date.
When you select a OSP Group Ltd course and complete payment, you will be provided access to the course and its first set of topics as well as supporting study material. If you are unhappy with a course, please request in writing a refund within fifteen (15) days of the date, that you were granted access to the course. We will provide you with a full refund for the amount paid. The 15 days’ time-rule for our refunds policy is not applicable to short courses; for example, one-day courses, executive workshops or courses of two-weeks duration or less. In such cases a full or partial refund will be paid subject to agreement between both Parties and taking into account any prior exceptional costs incurred by OSP Group Ltd. Such ‘exceptional costs’ might include, for instance, the booking of Third Party tutors, or provision of additional technology, which might well have been specifically booked for that iteration of course delivery, etc.
If you do not attend a course, and you have not previously informed us, the full course fee remains payable.
- Late arrivals/missed sessions
If you arrive late for a course or are absent from any session, we reserve the right to refuse to accept you for training if we feel you will gain insufficient knowledge or skill in the time remaining. In all such cases, the full course fee remains payable. To conform with requirements for accreditation and certificates, sometimes session participation or assessment submissions will be required in order to achieve accreditation, and these requirements will be outlined in the course handbook.
- Unforeseen circumstances
On occasion, unforeseen circumstances may require us to cancel a course. In such circumstances you will be given as much notice as possible and either a free transfer to another course date or a full refund of fees paid. Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd reserve the right to receive and witness documents that will prove the case for mitigating circumstances and unforeseen circumstances and final rights of appeal will be heard by scheduled meetings of the Executive Board.
All course fees are subject to the current rate of UK VAT (valid exemptions only).
- Distance selling regulations 2000
We abide by the applicable elements of the Distance selling regulations 2000.
- Guidelines for students and employers
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that students are free from any condition which would affect their capability to undertake their chosen course, and that they have the aptitude to cope with an intensive course of study. We welcome students with disabilities but it remains their employer’s responsibility to ensure that they are appropriately supported in their workplace.
Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd would welcome in advance, for setup purposes, notification of any assistance that a student is likely to need during the running of the course, if we are hosting the course. Our company premises are fully compliant with all Equalities legislation and we also audit any Third-Party venues for full compliance to the UK Equalities Act 2010.
If it is felt that the student doesn’t meet the learning outcomes of the course and or assessment process and is referred, they will be offered a free assessment; if this can be delivered at no-cost to Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd. If certification and accreditation is awarded by an outside body, then fees to resit exams and referral coursework might be levied plus an administration fee. Any further training or coaching over and above that provided on the course may be charged for.
