  • 100% within 7 days of enrolment if less than 25% of the course has been accessed/consumed.
  • 50% within 14 days of enrolment if less than 25% of the course has been accessed/consumed.
  • 25% within 30 days of enrolment if less than 25% of the course has been accessed/consumed.
  • Refunds are not issued after 30 days of enrolment.
  • Refunds are not issued if more than 25% of the course has been accessed/consumed.
  • Where you are enrolled in a subscription membership, by accepting these terms, you agree that you have read and understood that you are able to cancel your subscription membership at any time, by logging into your own account at www.onlineacademy.partneringessentials.com, clicking on ‘My Account’, clicking on memberships and cancelling your membership.  No refunds are given on membership subscriptions as you are free to cancel your membership at any time as per these instructions.  

Any chargebacks and dispute fees made through PayPal, Stripe, bank or other means will be appealed against you as per the Terms of Use that you agree to herein, along with a screenshot of your agreement to these upon your digital enrolment.
