Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I register for a place?
By booking online here.
Please note all payments must be complete before the event. We do however offer concessions for non-profits, charitable and exceptional cases. If you are interested and fit any of these criteria please do enquire via firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Why have I booked a course but haven't received a booking confirmation?
When you book a course online you will
immediately receive two automated email confirmations - one confirms your payment
and one from the BP Group. If you have not received either of these then the
chances are that these confirmations have either been diverted (by your email
program) into your "spam" folder, or that you have inadvertently
mis-spelt your email address during the booking process. If you have received
one, but not the other, then the missing email is almost certainly sitting in
your spam folder. This frequently happens with "free" email
accounts such as hotmail. If you still cannot find them, or would like a
replacement booking confirmation, please email us directly to: email@example.com
This then confirms the validity of your email address and will overcome the spam problem.
Q: Do I need to do any preparation before the course?
We will email you a "Reading List"
shortly after booking your course.
