(c)       includes VAT at the applicable rate.

Premier has the right to reject any order and/or limit quantities on any order, for any reason at its sole discretion.

Payments by Instalment Plans: Instalment options are only available for the NASM-CPT course and you will be required to enter into an FCA regulated agreement which will record the terms of the instalment plan. Instalment plans may vary but Premier typically charge an upfront deposit based on a percentage of the overall price of the course and the length may range between 12 and 24 months.

Instalment plan options will be subject to you being eligible for credit and where you have opted to pay for a NASM-CPT course via our instalment plan option you acknowledge and agree that we may pass your details to credit reference agencies and make a credit reference agency search to determine your suitability and ability to pay by instalment.

In order to enter into and maintain an instalment plan, a valid form of payment must be provided to Premier, and should the payment form subsequently be cancelled, you must immediately provide another valid form of payment to Premier. Cancellation of the payment form does not excuse or release you from your obligations and non-payment will be subject to our ‘late payments’ section below. Please contact Premier’s Customer Service Team for further details.

Fitness and Education Partnerships: Please also contact Premier’s Customer Service Team to discuss the customised packages that are available for educational institutions and health clubs that meet certain criteria. Pricing is based on volume and level of commitment and plans will vary.

Late Payments: where payments are made by agreed instalments and those instalments have not been paid on the due date or if payment for any of the Courses have not been made by the payment date, we reserve the right to withhold the release of examination results and/or delay the marking of the Courses undertaken until outstanding sums are paid. Premier reserve the right to suspend access to your online Accounts and/or treat the Courses ordered as being cancelled and offer the place to another person. No refund of any fees paid for the Courses will be made. We also reserve the right to charge interest on late payments at a rate of 4% above the base rate from time to time of HSBC Bank (or other UK clearing bank) as may be notified to you accruing on a daily basis until payment is made.
