1.1 Please read these terms and conditions carefully. We are Academy One with the registered office at Citywest Health & Leisure Club, Saggart, Co Dublin. These terms and conditions tell you information about us and the legal terms and conditions on which you will be entering a contract to purchase our Course Materials by enrolling on one or more of our courses or modules (’Enrol’) and to use our website thefitnessacademyonline.com. By Enrolling you will be granted access to digital content and/or services relating to the course/s on which you Enrol (‘Course Materials’). By accessing the Course Materials you are giving your express consent for the service to commence immediately and you acknowledge that you will immediately lose the right to cancel your Enrolment. We suggest that you print a copy of these terms and conditions for future use. In particular, we draw your attention to paragraphs 3 (Fees), 4 (Withdrawal and conditions relating to refunds), 11 (Applicability of Course Materials and other online materials) and 15 (Liability). By agreeing to Enrol you are agreeing to enter into a serious financial commitment. Academy One strongly recommends that prior to Enrolment you satisfy yourself you fully understand and are able to comply with that commitment.
1.2 If you have opted to pay fees by instalments you may be able to cancel your right to pay by instalments but you will remain committed to pay any and all outstanding fees. If you access Course Materials you acknowledge that you will immediately lose the right to cancel your Enrolment. Please see paragraph 4 below and your credit agreement if paying by instalments. If there is anything you are unclear about or if you have any questions, please contact us immediately by telephone or e-mail, details of which can be found in the Contact section of our website.
1.3 If you are making a block Enrolment for undesignated places and intend to designate named participants to access Course Materials as part of that block Enrolment, the entity making that block Enrolment will be primarily responsible to Academy One under these terms and conditions. Individual designated participants will be required to agree to those paragraphs of the terms and conditions that are relevant to their participation. Once a place has been designated to a participant and that participant accesses the Course Materials, the place can only be transferred to another participant upon written request and at Academy One’s sole discretion. Academy One is under no obligation to transfer a place to another participant. As appropriate and as the context may require references to “prior to Enrolment” may be deemed to mean “prior to commencing a course” and references to “you” may be deemed to mean the entity making the block booking and/or the individual undertaking the course.”
1.4 Without prejudice to the above, by Enrolling, or using or accessing our website, you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions.
1.5 If you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions, then you may not Enrol or use our website.
2 Nature of Our Website
2.2 Please note that the contents of our website are aimed at users aged 18 years and above, and you must be over 18 years to Enrol. Academy One may be prepared to Enrol students between the ages of 16-18 but in these circumstances a third party such as a parent or guardian will need to guarantee the contract on your behalf. Paragraph 3.5 below contains further details that apply to prospective students aged 16-18.
3. Enrolment and Fees
3.1 You will need to follow the procedures set out on our website or instructed by us to Enrol.
3.2 Details of fees and the procedures for payment (including the deposit applicable where fees are payable under the methods described in 3.3.2 and 3.3.3 below) are displayed on our website. By Enrolling you are agreeing to be responsible for the payment of the applicable fees in full.
3.3 Academy One is entitled to refuse any Enrolment application made by you or on your behalf. If your application is accepted, Academy One’s acceptance of your application to Enrol will be notified to you by Academy One electronically (“the Enrolment Notification”). This will normally happen when arrangements for full payment for the Course Materials by one of the methods referred to in 3.3.1–3.3.2 below have been made by you or on your behalf and been confirmed as satisfactory by Academy One or any third party acting on our behalf, and at that time the contract between us will come into force immediately. The Enrolment Notification, which will be sent to the e-mail address you gave us when Enrolling, will normally be sent to you when we (or any third party acting on our behalf) receive:-
cleared funds for payment in full for the Course Materials ;
In certain limited circumstances where you are proposing to make payment by the methods referred to in 3.3.2 above, we may (at our sole discretion upon your request) send out the Enrolment Notification and allow you to access Course Materials before the financial arrangements have been finalised and/or before we have received a deposit. Under these circumstances you agree to take all necessary steps to apply for, secure and finalise your financial arrangements as soon as possible. In the event that you fail to secure financing, you warrant and represent that you will be personally and fully responsible for all the fees relating to the Course Materials and any optional modules on which you have Enrolled. It is recommended that you do not access the Course Materials until full financing is in place and that you secure financing within 14 days from the date we send out the Enrolment Notification.
3.3 If you are aged between 16 and 18 when you Enrol, you will need a third party such as a parent or guardian to stand as your guarantor for the obligations that you will be entering into. You are required to give the name and address of your proposed guarantor in your application to Enrol. Academy One will write separately to your nominated guarantor who will be required to confirm to us in writing that they are prepared to stand as your guarantor. On receipt of the appropriate confirmation of guarantee and payment (as explained in 3.1 & 3.2 above), an Enrolment Notification will be sent to you and a copy to your guarantor. Until this happens Academy one is under no obligation to you to provide access to Course Materials.
3.4 If a third party such as your employer is paying for your fees, you are required to give the name and address of the payer in your application to Enrol and ensure Academy One is provided with written confirmation (e.g. a purchase order) from such third party confirming that they are paying your fees. On receipt of the appropriate confirmation of guarantee and payment (as explained in 3.3 above), an Enrolment Notification will be sent to you and to the third party who is responsible for your fees. Notwithstanding any third party agreeing to and/or actually paying any of your fees, you remain personally and fully responsible for the balance (if any) in the event of failure on the part of the third party to pay.
In certain limited circumstances where the third party is proposing to make payment by the method[s] referred to in 3.3.2 above, we may (at our sole discretion upon your request) send out the Enrolment Notification and allow you to access Course Materials before the financial arrangements have been finalised and/or before we have received a deposit. Under these circumstances you agree to procure that the third party will take all necessary steps to apply for, secure and finalise the financial arrangements as soon as possible. In the event that the third party fails to secure financing, you warrant and represent that you will be personally and fully responsible for all the fees relating to the Course Materials. It is recommended that you do not access the Course Materials until full financing is in place and that you secure financing within 14 days from the date we send out the Enrolment Notification.
3.5 You undertake that all details you provide to us (or any third party acting as our agent) for the purpose of Enrolling you will be correct; that the credit or debit card, or any electronic cash, which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost.
3.6 Academy One reserves the right to require you to provide any additional information that it may deem necessary in order to authorise your Enrolment.
3.7 You recognise that if payment for the Course Materials is not made by the due date for payment, it will result in the matter being referred to a third party debt collection service for recovery of the outstanding debt. If so, you agree to indemnify Academy One against the costs Academy One incurs in referring the matter to the Collection Service to pursue the debt, including the Collection Service’s current applicable fees for writing to you, any commission or fees payable by Academy One to the Collection Service.
4 Withdrawal and Access to Course Materials
4.1 Upon Enrolment you will be granted access to Course Materials.
4.2 On condition that you have not accessed the Course Materials you may withdraw from a course for any reason (including if you simply change your mind) within 14 days of us (or an agent acting on our behalf) sending the Enrolment Notification. Your ability to withdraw from a course expires after this period or on the date within this period that you access the Course Materials, as more particularly described below. To withdraw, you must notify us in writing using the cancellation form here or on other durable and recordable medium (including e-mail) within those 14 days. In circumstances where we have not received your cancellation notification, you will be required to provide evidence. You are therefore required to retain evidence of dispatch such as recorded delivery if sending your notification by post or a read receipt if sent by e-mail. You will then be entitled to a full refund from Academy One in respect of the course you have withdrawn from. This will be paid as soon as possible, but in any event within 14 days of receipt of your cancellation notification.
The right to withdraw within 14 days of the Enrolment Notification being sent as referred to above does not apply once you access any part of the Course Materials (including the introductory module) or area of the website that is only available to Enrolled students. You agree and understand that your cancellation rights will end on the expiry of 14 days from the Enrolment Notification or as soon as you access the Course Materials or any area of the website that is only available to Enrolled students (whichever is the first to occur).
4.3 Following the expiration of 14 days from the date on which Academy one (or our agent) has sent the Enrolment Notification or the date within this 14 day period that you access the Course Materials, no refunds under any circumstances (including but not limited to pregnancy, illness, injury, relocation or any other change in personal circumstances) will be given and the obligation to make outstanding payments, whether or not they have yet fallen due, will not be cancelled. The facility of paying for Course Materials by instalments is offered to assist you spread your expenditure only. If you Enrol on a course consisting of two or more modules, commencement of the first module is deemed commencement of the whole course and you will be responsible for full payment of the Course Materials you have purchased.
4.4 When you are paying for Course Materials by instalments, access will only be given to Course Materials on condition that all due instalment payments have been made to date in accordance with the payment schedule. If for any reason payments as outlined in any payment schedule are not received by Academy one (or our agent) or any payment is returned, refunded or retrieved by you, your credit card company or the entity through which you have arranged finance, your access to Course Materials will be denied. Under these circumstances Academy One will no longer be under any obligation to you. No refund will be given of the initial deposit or any payments made up to the date you breach the payment schedule. All outstanding payments (including those that have not yet fallen due) will become payable immediately by you and Academy one will take any action required to reclaim such outstanding payments plus any fees related to your default charged to Academy one by third parties (including chargeback fees levied by your credit card company for retrieving payments you have made to us).
4.5 To cancel a credit agreement with Academy One (as opposed to a credit agreement with a third party lender), you must notify Academy one in writing using the cancellation form here or on other durable and recordable medium (including e-mail) within 14 days of the Enrolment Notification. If you enter into a credit agreement with an approved third party lender, they will provide you with a copy of the credit agreement, and instructions on how to cancel it with them, including a cancellation form. Cancellation of a credit agreement with an approved third party lender is also only possible if the cancellation request is received by them within 14 days of the Enrolment Notification. In circumstances where you have accessed the Course Materials relating to a particular course and you cancel the credit agreement within 14 days of the Enrolment Notification, you will become responsible for full payment of the relevant course fees immediately and in their entirety and will lose the ability to pay by instalments. Withdrawing from the credit agreement does not cancel your contract for the purchase of Course Materials. You agree and understand that your right to cancel your credit agreement will end on the expiry of 14 days from the Enrolment Notification.
5 Computer Specification, Software Support and Alterations to the Website, Courses and the Awarding Body
5.1 You are responsible for ensuring you have suitable internet connectivity and download speed, and for providing and maintaining suitable computer equipment, communications equipment and software (including software updates if required) necessary to gain access to thefitnessacademyonline.com and the Course Materials.

5.2 If you are using the computer of a third party (e.g. your employer), it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the necessary consent to do so. If your circumstances change (e.g. if you change employer or if your employer changes its computer, equipment or software) and you no longer have access to a suitable computer for any reason, Academy one is not responsible for this and no refund of fees will be given in these circumstances.
5.3 Academy One does not provide software, hardware, or internet support and this is for you to arrange with your own providers. Academy One is not responsible for any technical problems you encounter with software, hardware or the internet when accessing Course Materials and no refund of fees will be given in these circumstances.

This includes but is not limited to changes that we are required to make in the content and structure of our courses in order to ensure continuing compliance with the requirements of national standards and the awarding bodies.

7 Assessment Booking, Training Day Bookings and Classroom Teaching
7.1 Certain training days are optional and payment of an additional fee is required before you can book a place on them. Booking on a specific assessment day or training day is only possible once you have fully completed the prerequisite theory module/s. Bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis and once an assessment day or training day has reached maximum capacity, no more bookings for the assessment day or training day will be taken. Booking onto an assessment day is not automatic and each student is required to book once they have successfully completed the pre-requisite theory module/s. Academy one accepts no responsibility for any student who fails to book the assessment day or training day they wish to attend. All bookings are your own responsibility and must be made at least 14 days in advance following the date on which you successfully complete the prerequisite theory module/s.
7.2 Depending on the course on which you have Enrolled, you will be required to bring one or more friends to your practical assessment to participate in a practical session and act as “mock students”. Academy one accepts no responsibility for such people and they will be attending entirely at their own risk. Please contact us for more information.
7.3 If you wish to change the date of your assessment day or training day, you must contact us at least 14 days prior to the assessment day or training day date. After this time no refund or transfer to another assessment day or training day will be granted.
7.4 If you fail to attend an assessment day or training day you have booked, a deferral for that module will be recorded. No refund or transfer to another assessment day or training day will be granted without additional charge.
7.5 Academy One reserves the right to change and/or cancel the dates and venues for assessment days and training days. You will be notified of any change by telephone, post or e-mail (which will be notified to the contact point you provided on Enrolment) and you will be able to transfer to another assessment day or training day (whatever the case may be) at no extra cost to you. Academy one is not liable in any other way for any additional expenses, costs or other charges that you may incur as a result of such change or cancellation, and you are responsible for ensuring that Academy one has up to date contact details for you.
7.6 Certain modules include distance and classroom-based teaching which are delivered on the same day/s during a set number of consecutive weeks. Once you have Enrolled on a series of training days, if you need to change your dates there will be an administration fee of €99 to transfer to an alternative series of dates. Academy One makes no guarantee that space will be available on your chosen alternative dates and reserves the right to select alternative dates on your behalf, if necessary. You are therefore advised to ensure that you are available on all dates before you Enrol on a series of training days.
7.7 Academy One reserves the right to change and/or cancel the dates and venues for distance and classroom-based teaching. You will be notified of any change by telephone, post or e-mail (which will be notified to the contact point you provided on Enrolment) and you will be able to transfer to the same course at an alternative venue and or date at no extra cost to you.Academy one is not liable in any other way of any additional expenses, costs or other charges that you may incur as a result of such change or cancellation, and you are responsible for ensuring that Academy One has up to date contact details for you.
7.8 You are required to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner at all assessment days and training days. If you behave in a manner which in the opinion of Academy One is threatening, abusive, offensive or otherwise unacceptable, Academy One will have the right to bar you from that and all future assessment days and training days. You will remain liable for all the fees relating to the Course Materials and no refund of fees will be given. If you behave in a manner which, in the opinion of the venue operator in which the assessment day or training day is taking place, is threatening, abusive, offensive or otherwise unacceptable, they will have the right to bar you from that venue. If you are unable or unwilling to travel for whatever reason to an alternative assessment day venue or training day venue at your own cost, you will remain liable for all the fees relating to the Course Materials and no refund of fees will be given.
7.9 In addition to your general responsibility to ensure that you are fit to undertake a course (please see paragraph 11.5), you are specifically responsible to ensure that you are physically fit on any occasion when you attend either a training day or an assessment day when you will be required to complete a physical activity readiness questionnaire (a copy of which is available in advance on request). If the results of this questionnaire indicate you require your GP’s consent to perform physical activity, you will not be permitted to perform the physical components of that day. This may prevent you from continuing on to the next section of your course. In these circumstances you will need to obtain the appropriate medical clearance and guidance from your GP and re-book another training day or assessment day, as appropriate. Fees for such training days or assessment days will not be refunded and Academy One will not be responsible for your travelling costs or other expenditure that may be wasted.
7.10 You acknowledge that you are fully aware of the risks involved in participating in training days and assessment days which can be physically and mentally demanding. You represent and warrant that you discharge Academy One, its agents, employees and representatives on a continuing basis from any and all liability for injuries or damages resulting from your participation in any of the Academy one training days and assessment days. This exclusion shall not cover death or personal injury caused by the negligence of Academy one or its employees, agents or sub-contractors.

8.2 Certificates and/or eCertificates are issued on successful completion of each certification module. Once all modules in the Academy One course have been completed, the relevant course e-certificate will be sent automatically to the e-mail address that you registered with us. After you have passed all assessments in a course accredited by an awarding body, the awarding body will be notified and they will issue the relevant certificate. Awarding bodies may take up to six months to issue certificates. No refund of fees will be given in these circumstances. Certificates will automatically be issued on successful completion and sent to your postal address.
8.3 In the event that you fail an online theory-based module, no re-enrolment will be required and you may continue to attempt online to successfully complete the module as many times as required.
8.4 Once you have undergone your practical assessment, you may check your progress report on our website by logging into the student area. Your assessment outcome will be posted approximately fourteen (14) days after the assessment date. If you fail a practical assessment or a portfolio assessment, you will need to re-book onto the module prior to being reassessed. This will be charged at the regular booking fee applicable at the time of re-booking.
8.5 All certificates and e-certificates will be issued in the name held on our records at the date you successfully complete the course or module. It is your responsibility to inform Academy One in writing of any change of name and to provide appropriate evidence, such as a marriage certificate or deed poll.
8.6 If you lose a certificate and require a replacement, a fee of €35 will be payable. If you change your name or address prior to the date you successfully complete the course or module but fail to notify us and require Academy One to issue a new certificate, a replacement fee of €35 will be payable. Please note we are unable to issue replacement certificates in a new name if the change of name occurred after the date you successfully completed the course or module.
8.7 Courses are organised in modules and must be completed in order. In the majority of cases you will not be permitted to progress to the next module unless you have successfully completed the prerequisite module/s preceding it. You may undertake modules as and when you are able to do so, depending on your circumstances, provided that you have commenced the final module in a course on or before the second anniversary of the date you commenced the first module of that course. There is no guarantee that any course will be run for more than two (2) years and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the course within this time frame. You will be deemed to have commenced the first module of a course on the date that the Enrolment Notification is sent out, in accordance with paragraph 3.3 above. You will be deemed to have commenced the final module of a course on the date that we receive your application for final certification with all the pre-requisites having been met by you. Failure to commence the final module of a course in accordance with the time scale explained in this paragraph will result in you being unable to undertake any remaining modules in that course. No refunds will be given for courses that are not completed.
