Refund & Return Policy

1: Online Course Returns

Online Courses are treated differently to other products when it comes to returns, given their digital nature and the fact that technical knowledge of the Online Course registration process may be required to assist you if the manual or its Link, or Online Course does not work. Once you purchase an Online Course, we will only allow you to return it if defective.

2. Physical Training refunds

Should Ichthys cancel any course due to circumstances out of our control, refunds can be applied for. Ichthys will always provide an alternative date to host the training. Should you wish to cancel the training you have paid for, no refund will be given and an electronic voucher will be issued to you for the same amount should the cancellation be made at least 14 days prior to the start of training.

3: Charges and refunds

If you return a defective product to us, but you fail to return all of the accessories and parts that were sold with that product, we are entitled to (subject to applicable law)  refuse the return,  or only to replace the item that you did return; or to estimate the value of the missing accessories and parts and to credit or refund you in respect of the returned item only.
