Finance Terms & Conditions

Invoices are only raised where the employer is paying, however this method can slow down the process and payment by the participant is recommended. No place is secure on a course until full payment has been received. Once an invoice has been raised the course place is dependent on prompt payment, if the CMRP invoice is not paid on time the course place is released for other participants on the waiting list. This process reduces last minute cancellations, ensures that invoices are not raised then left unpaid and that all course places are allocated. So that you do not lose your place due to financial issues we advise that if you are requesting an invoice to be raised that you communicate with your employer to make payment within the timeframe detailed on the invoice.

Responsibility for payment remains with the course attendee, if the employer does not pay the invoice the applicant will be liable to make payment or meet the cancellation charges.

After submitting your application you may withdraw your application 8 weeks prior to the event commencement date at which point you will be offered a refund, minus 20% admin fee. If you cancel your place on a course within 8 weeks of the event commencement date, no refund will be offered.

In the unlikely event that, due to unforeseen circumstances, the course has to be cancelled by the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP), we will refund any fees paid to us by delegates. Our liability is limited to refund only CMRP event fees. We recommend delegates have adequate insurance to cover any cancelled travel or personal expenses.

I confirm by ticking this box I have read, understood and agree to the payment and cancellation arrangements of CMRP and wish to apply for the above event:
