PRACTICAL SESSIONS

MATA reserves the right to determine class sizes and venues at short notice, or cancel a course due to insufficient delegates at 48 hours’ notice.  Alternative courses will be held if this occurs, no refund is given.  Delegates cannot choose which trainer they wish to have.

CANCELLATIONS

If a course or practical session date is cancelled by MATA, no refund is given however an alternative date will be offered.

If a delegate wishes to cancel their place on a practical session, a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice is required, otherwise any replacement dates are required to be paid in full at an additional cost at MATA’s discretion.

DIPLOMA LOG BOOK

It is the responsibility of the delegate to gather the information for their own log book.  MATA will not be held responsible for providing the information for the log book once the course has passed.

In the event that a delegate loses the model information, it is their responsible to find their own cases or MATA can provide additional practical sessions to complete this for a fee.

PRACTICAL SESSION MODELS

  • We will endeavour to complete the logbook for the Level 7 Diploma delegates within their practical sessions
  • The model numbers each day will depend on availability, clinical indications presented and cancellations on the day. 
  • No refunds are given due to lack of model availability however alternative practical sessions will be arranged on a case by case basis.
  • Specific treatment areas cannot be guaranteed as this is based on clinical indications presented on the day.
  • A delegate is able to bring their own models however treatments performed on them will not be exclusive to the delegate.
  • A delegate is responsible for the after care and follow ups of any models brought in by themselves.
  • Models brought in by delegates are charged the same as the standard MATA model pricing, which can vary at MATA’s discretion.
  • Model after care is the joint responsibility of the delegate and their group on the day, and the trainer on the day, and they are expected to assist with management of the complication as part of the learning process. 

REFUNDS

  • After a 14 day cooling off period, there is no refund on any course or qualification.
  • A delegate paying for any course or qualification is required to pay the full amount within a timeframe pre-agreed with MATA.

PAYMENT PLAN


A delegate on the payment plan who misses a payment is ejected from the course or qualification but still liable for the full course or qualification fee.

QUALIFICATION

As a per awarding body requirements, the Level 7 qualification must be completed within 6-9 months, extendable to a maximum of 12 months.  Only due to extenuating circumstances would a further extension be granted, and MATA reserves the right to ask for evidence on this.

TRAVEL

MATA is not liable for the travel costs of any delegate for a cancelled course.

MATA reserves the right to change the terms and conditions from time to time.
