Avalon Assessments Ltd have 2 cancellation policies, one is at the point of registration, the other is at the assessment stage.
Once payment for an assessment is completed Avalon Assessments Ltd will contact candidate/group of candidates for additional information before processing their registeration with the with NPTC. Once NPTC registration is completed it is then valid for 2 - 3 years. However, should a candidate/group of candidates wish to cancel their registration with the NPTC, they will have only 5 calendar days to do so, from the point of registration on the NPTC website, which will be provided to the candidate/group after booking an assessment online or over the phone. Cancellations after 5 calendar days may incur a administration charge up to the value of the assessment.
Once a candidate/group of candidates has been registered with the NPTC the assessment is then considered to be officially booked. Once a booking is considered to be officially booked, Avalon Assessments will then arrange a date with the candidate (or group in the case of group bookings) and their assesor. Should the candidate or group of candidates then wish to cancel the assessment, they will need to contact Avalon Assessments Ltd atleast 2 working days before the assessment is due to take place or the candidate/group will forfeit the assessment fee. Candidates will also forfeit the assessment fee should they not turn up to an assessment.
In addition, we will always do our best to accommodate the candidate/group being assessed and provided we are given atleast 2 working days notice we will do our best to reschedule bookings without the candidate/group incurring any additional cost or forfeiting their assessment fee.
