Terms and Conditions

1 General

These General Terms and Conditions apply to all services provided by LRTT Limited. Customers’ own General Terms and Conditions are not applicable. Deviations from these General Terms and Conditions must be agreed upon in writing to be effective.

1. Commencement of Contract

1.1. In the case of customer-specific services, LRTT will issue a written offer (hereinafter the Offer) upon preliminary negotiations with the Customer. The Offer will contain a service description and an acceptance form which, together with these General Terms and Conditions, will comprise the sole and entire Contract between the parties. The Contract will be legally binding when the acceptance form is signed by duly authorised signatories of each party.

1.2. In the case of open or online training courses, acceptance of contract is effected by the Customer returning to LRTT a deposit (varying from 10% to 100% of the full course price depending on the course) and a signed and completed registration form (containing all relevant elements); or by the Customer fully completing the online registration and payment process. By completing either registration process, the Customer is acknowledging that he/she has read, understood and accepted these General Terms and Conditions which, together with the training description and registration documents, comprise the sole and entire Contract between the parties. Upon receipt by LRTT of the completed registration form and deposit, LRTT will issue a letter of confirmation, setting out the details of the course and training facility, and, where applicable, will enrol the Customer on the relevant online training courses through the LRTT Learning Management System (LMS).

  • Compliance with all relevant safety and accident prevention rules applicable for training within LRTT.

2.4. With the exception of online training courses, services will be provided at LRTT’s premises in the UK or at another location as agreed with the Customer.

In all circumstances, certification will be effected by LRTT.

2.5. If successful completion of the training requires any test or examination, the test or examination will be conducted in accordance with applicable LRTT rules. LRTT does not warrant that the participant will reach the intended training level, nor does LRTT warrant that a participant will pass any tests or examinations

2.6. With respect to examinations, in accordance with Part 66 Appendix II (Basic examination standard) Item 1.13, the training participant shall confirm in writing to the approved maintenance training organisation or the competent authority to which they apply for an examination, the number and dates of attempts during the last year and the organisation or the competent authority where these attempts took place.
