Version number: 1.0
Effective date: 2nd October 2021

  1. Who are we?
    1. We are First Rescue Training and Supplies Ltd. Our company information is at the end of this document.

  2. What this is all about?
    1. These are our terms and conditions which apply to our training and related services. We’ve tried to make them user-friendly. Please read them carefully and save a copy as we don’t file a copy specifically for the transaction with you. They’re available in English only.
    2. Where you communicate with us on behalf of a company / organisation, you agree that you have authority to act on its behalf.

  3. How you enter a legal contract with us?
    1. Your order is an offer to enter a legal contract with us to use our services.
    2. You place your order by using the ordering process on our site. We accept your offer and there is a binding legal contract when we send you a confirmation email.
    3. We reserve the right in our discretion for any lawful reason to refuse any request to use our service.

  4. Providing us with accurate information
    1. You agree to ensure that all information which you supply to us is accurate and you will tell us immediately if there are any important changes.

  5. Paying us
    1. You must pay us in full in advance when you order unless we agree in writing to accept payment on invoice, in which case you must pay us at least 21 days before the course starts (unless we agree otherwise in writing). You must pay VAT where it applies.
    2. You must make all payments without any set-off, counterclaim or any other deduction.
    3. If any amount due to us is unpaid (including unjustifiable chargeback), without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to us, we may charge you: (1) a reasonable additional administration fee; (2) the amount of any third party charges imposed on us; and/or (3) interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount unpaid at the rate for the time being that would be applicable if the debt were a qualifying debt under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
    4. We are entitled to end this contract if you do not make any payment when due including if there is a chargeback.
    5. You must contact us immediately with full details if you dispute any payment.

  6. About discount codes
    1. We may offer discount codes from time to time. Such codes may only be applied to purchases made through the account in respect of which the discount code was offered and registered and are not transferrable or redeemable for cash. Unless otherwise stated: codes (1) are only available for future new orders placed online; (2) cannot be used retrospectively; (3) can only be redeemed once per customer; and (4) expire after 12 months. You cannot use more than one discount code per transaction unless we state otherwise; if we do so, the order in which the codes are to be applied is in our sole discretion.
    2. We reserve the right to reject any discount code if we consider that it is being used in breach of these terms. Discount codes are subject to any additional specific terms and conditions which are specified at the point of issue. We reserve the right to discontinue or otherwise modify any discount codes at any time without prior notice.

  7. Cancellations and changes
    1. There is no consumer right of “cooling off” because our service is aimed at people acting in connection with a business or profession.
    2. If you cancel any booking for a face-to-face or blended course by email at least 21 days before the face-to face course (or part of the course) starts, we will provide a full refund unless: we agree with you to reschedule the course (in-house) or for you to attend at an open course; or you have already started the online part of a blended course, in which case we will deduct 20% from the refund.
    3. For face-to-face in-house courses only, we will provide a 50% refund if you cancel less than 21 days but at least 14 days before the course starts.
    4. Except insofar as we say otherwise in this agreement, you are not entitled to any refund if you cancel a booking. And you remain liable to pay us any money that you owe us at the time of cancellation (e.g., where you are paying on invoice) subject to credit for any refund to which you are entitled under this agreement.
    5. We may in our discretion allow you to change to a different (open) course if you satisfy us that there are exceptional circumstances.
    6. We are entitled without refund to refuse you entry or require you to leave the face-to-face part of a blended course if you haven’t completed the online part of the course at least 24 hours in advance.
    7. We are entitled to cancel or reschedule any face-to-face course (or part of a course) if there are exceptional circumstances, e.g., illness of a course presenter, or if we consider that there are insufficient bookings for an open course. If so, we will give you as much notice as possible and we will provide a full refund unless we agree with you to reschedule the course (in-house) or your attendance at another open course.
