In circumstances where you discover an error or inaccuracy in the content contained in the Training Materials and/or the Learning Platform please notify us at the earliest opportunity. 

Due to the nature and timeline of education, Training Materials and/or Practical Lessons may require updating at any time to ensure compliance with industry best practice and awarding body requirements. If any changes are made to your course, we will aim to inform you as soon as reasonably possible but will not incur any additional liability to you.
