  2. The contract is made at the point at which a Student’s deposit is received in cleared funds for their chosen course (the Contract). IFT will use their best endeavours to ensure that those Students who have paid a deposit will have a place on their selected course.
  3. The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties. The Student acknowledges that he or she has not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of IFT which is not set out in these Conditions.
  4. Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising issued by IFT, and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the IFT’s catalogues or brochures, are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the courses described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
  5. These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Student seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
  1. IFT’s Obligations
  1. IFT shall provide sufficient training (in IFT’s reasonable opinion) for Students to be adequately prepared to attain the NEFPC.
  2. To ensure quality of instruction IFT limits the number of students per course, as it sees fit. Places are available on a first come, first served basis. Application to participate in a course does not guarantee acceptance onto that course. We strongly advise that students pay the required deposit as early as possible to secure a place on the course they desire and avoid disappointment.
  3. IFT shall provide to the Student a certificate evidencing their completion of the course subject to:
    1. the Student’s satisfactory completion of all the requisite assessments (both practical and written) contained within the course;
    2. the Students satisfactory completion of the all the requisite case studies (both practical and written) contained within the course;
    3. the full payment of all fees due to IFT without deduction or set off.
      3 Student Obligations
  1. The Student shall:
    1. pay all course fees as they become due or in accordance with any instalment plan agreed between IFT and the Student;
    2. cooperate with IFT in all matters relating to the course or courses to be provided;
    3. provide IFT with all such information and materials as IFT may reasonably require in order to provide the courses and ensure that such information is accurate in all material respects;
    4. inform IFT of any physical or learning disabilities which may affect student throughout the course, workshops or examinations.
    5. where possible attend every lesson. Where a student does not achieve 75% or greater attendance, they will not be eligible to partake in NEFPC examinations;
    6. Note that late-coming to class or early leaving class is recorded on student profiles and may affect attendance requirements for examinations.
    7. ensure that all mandatory course-work and case-studies set by IFT are submitted prior to the commencement of examinations;
    8. ensure all formative assessments and continuous assessments are completed and not missed. Missing part of a continuous assessment may result in ineligibility for certification I.e., if studio cycle practical assessment is missed then additional certification will not apply.
    9. Note that use of mobile phones is prohibited in class. If in the case of an emergency where a student may need to accept a call during class, notice must be given to the tutor before commencement of class. All phone calls will be taken and dealt with outside the class.
    10. ensure that they meet the requirements for the relevant course before enrolling as requirements for different courses may vary.
    11. behave in an appropriate manner at all classes and assessment days. If IFT reasonably deems a Students behaviour to be threatening, abusive, offensive or otherwise unacceptable IFT reserve the right to terminate the Contract without refund to the Student.
  2. The courses provided by IFT are practical-based fitness courses. Although IFT do not insist on a minimum fitness level as a requirement to starting the courses, the Student is hereby advised that the courses will require a basic level of physical ability & movement and Students should be prepared to actively participate in all classes, unless there is a medical reason otherwise.
  3. The Student shall be fully competent in the English language. This is expected in all the following skills; listening, reading, writing, speaking and understanding.

4 Courses

  1. IFT reserves the right to:
  2. reschedule and/or cancel the dates and times for classes, examinations and assessments;
    1. change the scheduled start date for any IFT course. If a courses start date changes significantly you will be offered the option to transfer to another date or receive a full refund of all fees paid.
    2. change the tutor or content of any given classes. As such it is a course requirement that Students arrive for each & every class prepared for both a practical and a classroom based theory session. In effect, this simply means that writing materials, notes, workbooks etc. should be brought to every class & also that workout clothes should be worn to every class.
  3. Where the Student has missed a class, it is their responsibility to catch up on the topics & lessons missed, prior to returning to the next session. The Students responsibilities in this circumstance include but are not limited to arranging with class-mates to copy notes, finding out what assignments have been given by the tutors, what needs to be prepared before the next class and if any assessments are scheduled. Students should note that Continuous assessments (C.A) will not be repeated throughout or at a later stage during the course, if missed. Students will be encouraged from the start of the course to network with their class-mates, to swap contact details. In the unlikely event that notes & information cannot be obtained, then the tutor should be contacted for assistance. Please note, however, that the tutors cannot be expected to send class content to every student, across every course, for every class missed. Remember also, that due to the practical nature of the course, “catching-up” will never be as good as attending in the first place.
  4. Where the Student finds that they are struggling to understand or learn any aspect of the course content, they should speak to the relevant tutor or if preferred the course coordinator. Assistance may range from repeating a topic in class to suggestions on learning and practice techniques right through to additional tutoring time. This will be given on a case-by-case basis, at the discretion of the tutors, in consultation with the course coordinator.
  5. In the event of a course being cancelled before its commencement date, IFT will fully refund course fees paid but will not be held responsible for any additional costs incurred by the Student, such as transport or accommodation. In the event of a course being cancelled after its commencement date, IFT may decide, at its absolute discretion, to offer continuation of tuition on an alternative course. Where this is not suitable, course fees will be refunded.
  6. IFT offer a 14-day cooling off period from date of initial deposit or payment. This payment secures a place on the relevant course. During this period of 14 days, if a student cannot commit to his/her course place then a full refund maybe granted, written notice must be received within 14 days to After this period, no refund/ transfer policy will apply.
  7. IFT will endeavour to give adequate notice for additional PLUS workshops. Timetables will be given to students with maximum notice, at least 8 weeks prior to PLUS workshops commencing. It is the students responsibility to attend each workshop. Where a student cannot attend an additional PLUS workshop, there will be no alternative workshops arranged. Nonattendance of PLUS workshops will not affect NEFPC Qualification. Students will receive certification for all workshops attended, achieved and completed only. No refund / transfer / down grading will be permitted after 14-day cooling off period of initial sign up date.

    1. withdrawal of permission for the Student to continue their participation on the course,
    2. the Student may be deemed ineligible to sit examinations,
    3. certificates not being awarded to the Student.
  6. If the student encounters unforeseen circumstances which restrict their ability to pay instalments due, they should contact as soon as possible. Such cases will be dealt with by Image Fitness Training on a case-by-case basis
