Active Edge

Terms & Conditions of Booking

We ask that you complete your training within one year. You can continue training after the first year limit but you may be expected to purchase extra days.

Active Edge will not qualify any student until that student reaches the required standard as set by BHPA. We reserve the right to call a halt to training in the interest of a student's safety.

Important - Please read

To ensure the smooth operation of the school, all course fees must be fully paid in advance of training. Please choose which course you require then ring us on 0845 129 8286 to book your date(s). Once you've called us we can reserve your dates for seven days while we wait for your completed booking form and payment to arrive. Prices include training & equipment use.

Cancellation

You have a 7 day, full refund cancellation period after purchasing any of our courses. Due to the nature of our business, once the 7 day cancellation period has expired, there can be no refunds for any reason. If your start date is within 7 days of the purchase, there is no cancellation period. If you are booked on a course during any part of your training and you decide not to attend, you must give us at least 48 hours notice or risk forfeiting that day. Gift vouchers are non-refundable but are valid for a whole year from the date of issue. Sorry, but we must be strict on these points to ensure the continuing survival of our business.

Inclement weather

All our training and experience days are weather dependent. Active Edge and its instructors cannot be held responsible for the fickle nature of the British climate. If you are unfortunate with the weather during your booked dates, we will time credit you the lost day or days for up to 1 year to be taken at your convenience - just keep rebooking the next available date until you get a good weather slot. As with all weather dependent sports, patience can be required at times but the rewards are vast in comparison. If you are not a patient person, we would politely suggest that weather dependant sports are probably not for you.

Note: No money refunds due to inclement weather are possible on any days booked.
