Please note that VAT is added to any invoice we send. Cancellation policy: We offer a full refund if the course was cancelled two weeks, at latest, prior to the start. In the event that you cancel 13 days (or less) before the start of the course, we offer 50% refund. From the day the course starts we will not refund the course fee. 

Digital Courses

Full payment of the enrollment fee is due before the time of registration. You can pay by credit card, debit card, bank transfer, or wire transfer.
