ITC Booking Procedures: Each ITC course is a special event. To see when courses are available you can check the IKO training calendar, or check the schedule of the individual IKO training center. Each ITC Course requires extensive preparation and organization. ITC courses are scheduled months in advance. The lead in time is used to prepare the course and the candidates. Many candidates will travel internationally or long distances to attend our courses, so their travel arrangements and schedules need to be set in advance.
Enrollment: To enroll in the course you should fill out the Application Form, and/or contact the organizer with your details email, phone number and dates. The organizer will send you the course requirements and information via email, or send you the links to the website info. The candidates should read the information thoroughly, and familiarize themselves with the details. Each candidate must meet the course’s *prerequisites before the commencement of the course.
Deposit: Candidates must pay their deposit before the course to make a reservation. Then pay the balance of the pre-course payment to make their confirmation into the course. Deposits are non-refundable unless the course is cancelled by the organizer.
Maximum number: There are a maximum number of candidates allowed for each course. If the course is overbooked, the organizer may create a standby list in case of any cancellations. If you are on the standby list for the course you should also have the pre-requisites, and the deposit paid.
Cancellation: ITC Courses need a minimum of 4-6 candidates to be run. If there are not enough candidates to run the course before the cut off date, the course will be cancelled.
Cut-off date: The cut off date for enrollment is usually 30 days before the course. Do not expect that last minute enrollments will be accepted. However this is up to the organizer.
Confirmation: Confirmation in the course is usually 30 days prior to the course. Then the organizer has the minimum number of paid qualified candidates. The second payment is required at the time of confirmation (usually 50% the course fee).
Travel to the Course: When booking travel arrangements you should be sure that your course has been confirmed at the cut-off date. If you need to make travel arrangements more than 30 days in advance of the course you should be sure that your tickets are refundable of transferable. Please note that many cheap tickets are not transferable and you could lose you money if you do not travel on your exact dates. Travel insurance may help in the event of cancellations or medical problems.
