1.Booking a Course:

  • Choose your course and submit an online booking form.
  • On receipt of the booking form we will issue an invoice and payment can be made by BACS (details are displayed on our invoices).
  • Only once payment has been received will we will confirm your place on the course.

2.Amendment / Cancellation by the Customer:

All cancellations must be in writing (email or letter) and acknowledged by us. Cancellations will be subject to a £30 booking fee which will be deducted from your repayment. If you cancel your place on a course less than 4 week (28 days) of the course start date, we will not be able to refund your payment. If you wish to amend your booking (change to another course date) within the 4 week (28 day) cancellation / amendment period, we will do our best to try and fill your place. If we are unable to fill the place we are unable to offer you a refund and you will need to make a new booking. We recommend that you take out personal insurance to cover cancellation on your part.

3.Amendment / Cancellation by CHMAS

In the event of cancellation by CHMAS we will notify you as soon as possible and you will either be offered a full refund of the course fee paid or have the option of joining another course on a different date. In the event of cancellation by CHMAS we will not be liable and are unable to reimburse any travel or accommodation expenses incurred. Again, we recommend that you take out personal insurance to cover cancellation.

4.Risk Acknowledgement Statement:

We have an excellent safety record! However, all our courses can be physically demanding and you need to ensure that you are fit to participate in the activities booked and understand the physical demands involved. The activities we run can be hazardous and can involve an element of risk of injury or even death. We will manage the risk as is reasonable practicable, but you will need to take responsibility for your own actions and involvement during the course and abide by safety decisions made by your instructor.


HMAS has full public and professional liability cover for its activities. We do however, advise you to take out your own personal sports insurance (Please make sure that this insurance covers you for the activities you will be taking part in.) As mentioned earlier, you may also wish to take out insurance that will cover you for cancellation on your part.
