Vouchers

The term “Voucher” is used for any coupons, promotional offers or discount codes offered by the iRed® Academy or its representatives. All physical vouchers are dated, and expire 12 months from the date of issue by default. You can only use a voucher once and for its full value. After this, you won’t be able to use it again, even if you cancel your booking or payment. There’s a limit of one voucher per booking or purchase. The full value of any training vouchers can only be used for courses above £600 GBP.

  • Vouchers cannot be used in combination with any other promotions or offers
  • Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash
  • Vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with finance options
  • Vouchers are non-refundable and non-transferable

The iRed® Academy reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions and/or discontinue a voucher at any time. This does not affect your statutory rights. Equally, the iRed® Academy reserves the right to refuse a Voucher in payment or part payment of any item where it reasonably suspects that the card or any amount on it may have been stolen, tampered with, duplicated or obtained in an illegal way.

If a customer is given a ‘free space’ on a training course as part of an offer or package (i.e. Buy One Get One Free) and fails to pay the agreed amount, the ‘free space’ will no longer be valid. iRed reserves the right to cancel any ‘free spaces’ if payment for that party is not met on time (time period will be issued along with invoice). iRed also reserves the right to change the time period given. If this period is shorter than what previously stated, iRed will inform the customer.

Students attending a course accredited by BINDT (British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing) will be required to complete additional paperwork, prior to the commencement of a course. They will also need to provide two physical passport-sized photographs for full accreditation, which will need to be provided on the first day of the course. If not provided, this may incur an additional admin fee of £49.50 (inc. VAT).

Finance Applications

Students opting for finance will first have to be approved by our partners, DivideBuy. On successful approval, students must pay a 10% deposit (based on the course cost) and agree to a 12 month payment plan. Once agreed, finance applicants are entitled to a 14 day ‘cooling-off’ period, whereby any cancellation within this time will yield a full refund of the deposit. After the ‘cooling-off’ period, all courses purchased with finance will not be eligible for a refund.

All finance agreements are confirmed 30 days prior to the start of the course.
