Whilst every reasonable effort is made to ensure that the trainers conform to the course content Balanced Approach reserve the right to adapt or alter the course structure should the need arise, without liability to themselves.
6. CONDUCT OF THE COURSE
The Client(s) acknowledges that during a training course he/she is required to submit to reasonable instructions and leadership of Balanced Approach trainers and that persons attending the training courses are entitled to a high standard of conduct and regard for personal well being on the part of all clients. For this reason the client acknowledges that there may be circumstances in which, for the reasons of group safety and without the need to give reason, a client may be asked to leave the course, if necessary against their will. Circumstances in which this might occur are instances of abusive or disorderly conduct; intoxication.
Balanced Approach make every effort to minimise risks to clients and ensure the clients training will minimise these risks. Consequently, the client acknowledges that such risks exist and that there may be circumstances in which an accident could occur and that the client takes responsibility for such accidents. However, should it be shown that the accident has occurred due to the negligence of Balanced Approach trainers, then Balanced Approach accept liability for the accident. The client also acknowledges that other loss, damage and expense howsoever arising is not the responsibility of Balanced Approach and that Balanced Approach liability is hereby limited.
The Client further acknowledges that Balanced Approach, having negotiated Liability Insurance for all of its activities, expects its clients to rely, where appropriate, on that insurance cover to mitigate any losses accordingly.
In the unlikely event that a client has cause for complaint about a training course, such complaint should be addressed to the course trainer on the day in order that corrective action can be taken at that time. However should a problem not be resolved complaint should be made in writing within 28 days from the close of the event attended. To the extent permitted by law, Balanced Approach will not be liable with respect of claims first initiated later than the 28 days from the close of the relevant course.
