GUARANTEE OF QUALITY
Our Guarantee of Quality provides our customers with the opportunity to attend the course of their choice — and then pay only if 100% satisfied with the value of the course. If a customer sends us a written notice of dissatisfaction with a course within 60 days of the course start date, the customer will have the option of retaking the course at no charge, applying tuition fees against another course attendance, or receiving a full refund of any course tuition paid and cancellation of any unpaid invoices for that course. If a customer used a Government Training Passport or Government Training Voucher for the course, we will not count the attendance against the Government Training Passport or Government Training Voucher used.
TERMS FOR PUBLIC COURSES PURCHASED UNDER A GSA SCHEDULE
INDIVIDUAL COURSE ATTENDANCE
The course tuition is due and payable within thirty (30) days after the later of the invoice date or the start date of the course.
The course tuition includes instruction; course materials; the use of software, computers and other technical hardware as appropriate to the course; and Learning Tree Certification Examinations. Learning Tree International also provides light refreshments during morning and afternoon breaks. The course tuition does not include sleeping rooms, meals, travel or any other expenses that may be incurred by our customer. Any and all applicable taxes will be invoiced.
We welcome the enrollment of a qualified substitute in an enrollee’s place, provided the customer notifies us in writing before the first day of the course (excludes PRINCE2®, ITIL®, COBIT®, MSP® and Change Management courses). 100% of any prepaid course tuition will be credited against the course tuition of the substitute. However, the substitute may not take advantage of any discount program. Government Training Passports are nontransferable and therefore are not eligible for substitution.
If a customer would like to cancel or transfer their course, they must notify Learning Tree prior to two weeks before the start date of the course or within seven days of registration. If a customer transfers to another course prior to two weeks before the start date or within seven days of registration of the course in which originally enrolled, 100% of any prepaid course tuition will be applied toward the course tuition for the subsequent course. If a customer needs to cancel an enrollment two weeks prior to the start of the class or within seven days of registration, we will refund 100% of any prepaid course tuition for that enrollment. If a customer does need to transfer or cancel a course within two weeks of the start date of the course or after seven days from the date of registration, a fee equal to 50% of the price of the course will be assessed for any standard attendances. Attendances associated with a Learning Tree program such as (Passport, Voucher, etc.) will be assessed a $500 fee. Training Passports cannot be used after the expiration dates, and a course cancellation or transfer by the customer will not extend a Training Passport expiration date.
Learning Tree Premium Course is any course that includes 3rd party materials, exam vouchers, certifications, specialized instructors, special software licenses, or premium labs and course kits. A course could have one or all of these attributes to be considered a Premium Class. The cost to execute these courses are higher than our standard Public Courses. Learning Tree reserves the right to designate courses as Premium based on these or other high costs associated with executing these events.
LEARNING TREE COACHING
Learning Tree Coaching is a program designed to “bridge the gap” between classroom training and the workplace. The coaching is done at the workplace as a one-day extension immediately following completion of a Learning Tree On-Site Course. The instructor helps course attendees put into practice the knowledge gained in the course to tackle real projects or assignments, as well as services to redefine job roles, update competencies and define additional skills gaps.
GOVERNMENT TRAINING PASSPORT
The purchasing agency will be invoiced for each course after course attendance. The first course will be invoiced at the GSA discounted individual seat price until all funds are exhausted. The Government will pay for courses only after attendance. In addition, the purchasing agency is required to submit a Government Training Form and/or Purchase Order for the total Government Training Passport price within thirty (30) days after the start date of the first course attended under the Government Training Passport. Payment for each course attendance on the Government Training Passport is due within thirty (30) days of invoice date. Government Training Passports (i) are nontransferable and can only be used to pay course tuition for the named holder and (ii) cannot be used to attend courses either in excess of the specified number of courses or which start more than 12 months after the start date of the first course attended under that Government 2- or 3-Course Training Passport or which start more than 24 months after the start date of the first course attended under the Government 4-Course Training Passport.
GOVERNMENT TRAINING VOUCHER PACKS
Unless directed by the purchasing agency in writing to do otherwise, Learning Tree will prepare a weekly invoice to include the actual number of course attendances in the previous week, with each priced according to the discount offered through the Government Training Voucher Pack Program. In addition, the purchasing agency is required to submit a Government Training Form and/or Purchase Order for the total Government Training Voucher Pack amount within thirty (30) days after the start date of the first course attended under the Government Training Voucher Pack. Payment on the Government Training Voucher Pack invoice is due within thirty (30) days after the invoice date. Government Training Vouchers (i) are transferable and can be used to pay for the attendance of any qualified course participant but (ii) cannot be used to attend more than the number of courses covered by that Government Training Voucher Pack purchase.
TERMS FOR ON-SITE COURSES PURCHASED UNDER THE GSA SCHEDULE
The course tuition fee for On-Site Courses is due and payable within thirty (30) days after the later of the invoice date or the course start date. If a customer needs to cancel or reschedule any event less than 16 days before the scheduled start of the event, the customer will be subject to a cancellation fee in the amount of 50% of the event fee. However, if the event is rescheduled to execute within ninety (90) days of the cancellation date, then a cancellation fee in the amount of 25% of the event fee will apply. Learning Tree will not impose any penalty if the customer notifies Learning Tree of the need to cancel or reschedule an event 16 days prior to the scheduled start date of the event. Any event cancelled or rescheduled that is non-standard in length, content, delivery method, etc., based on customer requirements and request, and the customer cancels the course, the customer will pay for all incurred customization fees, or performance costs associated with the event.
TERMS FOR ALL COURSES PURCHASED UNDER A GSA SCHEDULE
ACCOMMODATION FOR DISABILITIES
We are committed to complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws regarding reasonable accommodations for course participants with disabilities. Accommodations should be requested by a course participant’s employer, preferably in writing. In order to plan for and provide effective accommodations, we ask that accommodations be requested as early as possible, and no later than two weeks before the start of the course.
Learning Tree will provide an additional seat in the classroom and a full digital set of course materials for an auxiliary aide upon request. Other requested accommodations will be discussed with a course participant’s employer. Accommodations that fundamentally alter the nature of the services being provided, jeopardize safe operations, or result in undue hardship may not be available. Please call 1-800-843-8733 to advise Learning Tree of any need for accommodation.
The customer agrees that all course participants will abide by security measures in effect at the course location.
At times, we must change a course location, course date or postpone a course. We will try to give the customer as much advance notice as possible of any such change. We will not be liable for any other costs incurred, including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages, even if we were advised of them. Changes in course locations, course dates or postponement of courses will not extend a Government Training Passport expiration date.
