2.1. Your membership

We may acknowledge your application in writing and take payment details from you at the time you apply the course, but this does not mean that we have accepted your application.

2.2. Our acceptance of your course application

If your membership is for a gift, the recipient must be over 18 years. By submitting your application, you confirm that the recipient is over 18 years old.

For most courses our acceptance of your application takes place when we notify you that your application has been accepted.

At the time we accept your application, a contract will come into existence between us.

2.3. If we cannot accept your application

We will inform you if we are unable to accept your application for any reason, and you will not be charged, any monies paid in advance will be returned to you in full.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept your application for any course on a temporary or permanent basis, for any reason.

Unless otherwise stated, we accept payment using any of the following:

4.1. If there are any issues with the contract between us, we will always seek to contact you to resolve them first. However, we reserve the right to end the contract between us in the following circumstances: 

a) if you do not make a payment to us when it is due, and you still do not make payment within 30 days of us reminding you that payment is due;

b) if you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the course that you have applied for; or

c) if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the course application acceptance to you.

4.2. If we end the contract for any of these reasons, we may refund any money you have paid in advance for course we have not provided, but we may also deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract. 

Where we charge for our courses or workshops, the following terms apply:

5.1. If we cancel a course or workshop

We reserve the right to cancel any advertised course if there is insufficient interest, or if we are unable to proceed with the course or workshop for reasons beyond our control. If you have been charged, we will contact you as soon as a decision is made and a full refund will be arranged.

5.2. If you wish to cancel your course application

If you wish to cancel an order and you have been charged, please contact us as soon as possible. If you cancel your order before accessing the course material a full refund will be arranged.

If you wish to cancel once the course material has been accessed no refund will be given but a chance to defer the course start date may be offered. 

5.3. Refund Policy

All fees are strictly non-refundable once the course has started or you have accessed the course material.

5.4. Failure to pay or honor your subscription

Failure to pay or honor your subscription will result in limited access to course material and no certificate or diploma will be issued by this academy in such cases. 

7. NPA Course Pausing & Retaking

7.1 Pausing: If at any time during the student’s diploma course a student wishes to pause their studies because of unforeseen circumstances which prevent them from finishing, they can come back to finish at a later date, no later than 18 months from the date they started.

7.2 Retaking: Students who fail to make good progress and do not finish the coursework or fail to submit their final submissions to their instructor can request to retake the latter section of the course and resubmit the final perfume. 

7.3 Retake Fees: Retake fees are applicable if a student has retaken the course after a first failed attempt and wishes to resubmit their final perfume. The retake fees are nominal and at the discretion of the teacher.

7.4 We are not unsympathetic to events beyond the student’s control, and in those very rare cases, special allowances for illnesses or injuries may be implemented at the discretion of the administration and staff. 

Upon satisfactory completion of the CPD Certified NPA Natural Perfumery course an official diploma of graduation will be awarded to the student. 

As part of our commitment to sustainability and ethical practices, courses older than 2 years are automatically removed from our system. Fully paid and graduated students many have indefinite access to new course materials upon request.  We encourage you to retain your personal coursework and records for your reference.
