Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellation and Refund Policy for the RHYC training courses.

If You Change or Cancel Your Course

If, after our Booking Confirmation has been issued, you (i) make a change to your existing booking or (ii) or wish to change to another course or change the course start date, we will try to make the changes subject to availability, provided that notification is received in writing. We will not charge you fees to amend your booking in the following circumstances:

– To correct an incorrect initial, first name, Surname or title

– To change course participants up to 35 days before the start of the course date.

Should you wish to amend the course to an alternative date, outside of 35 days before the course date, you will not be charged an administration change fee, but you will be charged the difference in the cost of the course.

Should you wish to change the course within 35 days before the start of the course date, this may be treated as a cancellation at our discretion.

You may cancel your booking at any time providing that the cancellation is made in writing. Notice of cancellation will be effective upon receipt by us of your written communication. As we start to incur costs from the time the contract is confirmed we will apply cancellation charges as shown below.

  • More than 35 days’ notice a full refund will be made.
  • 0 – 35 days prior to the start date of the course 100% of total course cost.
If We Change or Cancel Your Course

If the RHYC has to cancel a course for whatever reason, any student booked on that course will be entitled to either a full refund or a place on an alternative course.


We keep our cancellation and refund policy under regular review and we will place any updates on this webpage. Any such updates will not affect any purchases you have made before the change is implemented.
