I wanted to attend Emergency First Aid at Work on the 12th of November 2021, however, the next day after booking the... course (on 23-10-2021), I received an email from the organizer stating the conditions and requirements. After careful reading, I decided to cancel my booking as I did not feel comfortable with the requirements, however, the organizer refused to issue me a full refund stating that I have never requested the cancellation as they have "double checked". Even though I cannot comment on the content of the course as I have never had attended it, I feel the organization around the course was below the reasonable standard, therefore, I decided to put 1 star. I hope the organizer can improve their communication and address the current situation as soon as reasonably possible. Thank you.read more
