All courses should be booked via the website. Where a course is specially provided invoices will be issued via the office direct to the individual booking that course.

All courses must be paid for in full upon booking. There is no mechanism to ‘reserve’ a place without paying in full. Our website accepts all major credit and debit cards. Upon receipt of the booking form you will be sent course details (joining instructions) and receipt of payments received.

If you are booking on behalf of a group you must ensure that all participants are aware of the terms and conditions.


In the event of cancellation on your part the following charges apply:

More than 2 weeks prior to booking – 50% of course fee

Between 2 and 1 week prior to booking – 75% of course fee

Less than 1 week full payment – 100% of course fee

In the unlikely event that RNIYC have to cancel the course then an alternative date will be offered. If this cannot be arranged RNIYC will refund your course fee.
