Where a delegate has booked and paid for an event in full and cannot attend on the day, this is regarded as a no show. While all course material can be posted to the intended delegate, structured CPD cannot be awarded.


Pre-booking is essential to secure a place, otherwise places cannot be guaranteed on the day.

The Institute reserves the right to admit additional delegates to the course in the event that suitable space is available. Delegates are advised to ensure that they have registered with the event administrator on the day, for CPD accreditation purposes.
