IFOA Refund policy

We understand that we are required to comply with certain obligations under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (“the Act”) in respect of certain of the services that we provide.
We always endeavour to conduct our exams and events with reasonable skill and care and in accordance with all other legal requirements incumbent upon us. Where you consider that our exams or events have not been conducted with reasonable skill and care or that we have not complied with any of the other obligations incumbent upon us under the Act, we understand that you may be entitled to certain remedies. These remedies are known, in the Act, as repeat performance or price reduction. Should you consider this to be the case, please contact us and we will discuss with you what this means in the context of our exams and/or events.
In cases where you are looking to cancel your participation in an exam (not owing to any alleged failure by us to comply with our legal obligations), we set out our refund policy for both sessional and practical exams below. In respect of an event, if you no longer wish to attend (again, not owing to any alleged failure by us to comply with our legal obligations), we set out our refund policy below.
