IEUWA  cancellation of an IEUWA course (IEUWA courses appear in the IEUWA calendar of events)

IEUWA reserves the right to cancel any program wherever it believes that there is a risk to the health and safety of participants, where the conditions or the number of registrations is unlikely to be conducive to a productive professional learning environment, where there is a clash with an event, or for any other valid reason.

Every attempt will be made to notify registered participants in a timely manner and to reduce the inconvenience to registered participants for such a course cancellation, however no guarantees are made nor liability accepted for losses.

IEUWA also reserves the right to make alterations to the advertised program where there is required e.g. illness of facilitator, to ensure that a productive learning event occurs consistent with high quality professional development. Every reasonable attempt will be made to notify registered participants of changes prior to the scheduled date of the course.
