Online Membership
This is an annual membership. The monthly payment plan option allows users to spread the cost of the annual member over 12 months but is not the same as a monthly "cancel anytime" membership. The option to cancel and terminate membership part way through the 12 month payment plan will be offered on a case by case basis only. Please email members@gundogtrainersacademy.co.uk 

Contract of Sale
Completion of the booking process and acceptance of our terms and conditions forms your contract with the The Gundog Trainers Academy Ltd. The contract contains the final and entire agreement and understanding between the parties and is the complete and exclusive statement of its terms.  

Code of Practice
Students of The Gundog Trainers Academy Educational Courses and Assessments will be required to sign a declaration agreeing to adhere to the spirit of the GTA Code of Practice for the duration of the complete course and assessment process.  

Payment for all courses, pre-assessments and assessments must be made in advance. It is not possible to attend a course unless payment has been received. We accept payment by BACS, PayPal, credit/debit card online or cheque.  Payment for the four-module GTA Educational Course is required as follows:-  1/ None-returnable deposit of £500 to secure you booking  2/ Final balance of £2250 for the Teachers / £1500 for the Handlers due 42 days (six weeks) prior to the start of Module 1. Please note that it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that payments are made in full and on time. The GTA will not issue reminders. If you fail to pay in full within the specified time frames your booking will be automatically cancelled.  Payments for short courses, pre-assessments and assessments are payable in full 42 days (six weeks) prior to commencement of the event and are subject to the same cancellation policy herein.  

Cancellations must be made by email to admin@gundogtrainersacademy.co.uk  Cancellations for courses will be subject to the following fees:-  Cancellations received by us less than 28 clear days before the first day of the course will be charged the full course fee. For example if you have signed up for a course being run on the 30 and 31st of a month, the latest date by which you may cancel to avoid paying the full fee is the 2nd of that month. Cancellations between 28-42 clear days prior to the start date will be charged 50% of the full course fee. Cancellations more than 42 clear days prior to the start date will be charged 30% of the full course fee.

2. Pre-assessments & assessments:  Transfers/deferrals for the GTA pre-assessments and assessments may be requested up to 42 days before the assessment date subject to a £50 administration fee. No transfers for GTA pre-assessments or assessments will be available after the 42 day cut off period and our cancellation fees policy will apply.
