Course Content and Materials

Course Content

The course overviews provided by Bigrockdesigns are designed as a guide to what is covered in the course. While we aim to closely follow outlines, we do not guarantee that every single item listed will be covered in every class, and the instructors are given some flexibility in what they teach based on what they feel will best accommodate the group ability, size and requirements.

Lost Materials

Highlander shall not be responsible for the loss or theft of course materials after delivery to the customer. Course materials will only be provided by Highlander Ltd as part of the purchase of the relevant course and not as separate items of supply.

Copyright

All copyright and other intellectual property in all material which we prepare for use prior to or during the course, including online material and course books, shall be and remain vested in us. You cannot duplicate or use any materials given to you for distribution to others by electronic or other means.

Onsite Courses

Onsite Facilities

For all non-scheduled courses, the client is responsible for the provision of a suitably equipped training facility. This includes suitable hardware and software for running the course, as well as provision of an overhead projector for the instructor to use. The instructor may need to install files as part of the course and / or download content via the internet and it is the clients responsibility to ensure the instructor is able to do so at the training facility.

Instructor’s Expenses

For all non-scheduled courses, regardless of location, the instructor’s travelling, accommodation and subsistence expenses will be charged to the client. For non-scheduled international courses travel time at a pre-agreed rate may be applied. An invoice will be raised following the course once precise costs are known.

Additional Delegates

Prices quoted for onsite courses are based in part on the number of delegates. If you decide to add additional delegates to a class once your booking has been confirmed, you must notify Bigrockdesigns and accept that there may be an additional charge incurred for each extra delegate that you have added to the course.

General Condition

Delegate Experience & Behavior

Delegates are expected to behave professionally at all times during the course. Drunk and disorderly behavior will not be tolerated.
Delegates must fulfill the minimum requirements specified in the course. Failure to adhere to these pre-requisites will impact our ability to deliver the course effectively. Inexperienced, under qualified, over experienced and over qualified delegates may attend courses but must realise that the benefits gained will be limited and that instructors cannot normally change course content and depth to suit these delegates, unless by prior arrangement.

We reserve the right to exclude delegates from the course (without refund of fees) at any time if they cause significant interruptions or delays for the above or any other reasons, or if their qualifications and current experience are impacting on our ability to deliver the course as originally intended.
We reserve the right to stop a course (without refund of fees) should delegates misbehave, cause interruption or should their experience and qualifications be such that we cannot continue to deliver the course as originally intended in terms of content and depth.

Miscellaneous

The client (and any other parties introduced by the client to Highlander’s representatives directly or indirectly) will not, under any circumstances, conduct any direct negotiations with Highlander’s representatives, sub-contractors or associate companies (or parties introduced by them directly or indirectly) in respect of this or any other planned work without prior approval in writing from Highlander. Any loss of actual or future business resulting from such negotiations will be charged to the client at a rate of £1,500 per day for each man day of lost business, £500 per delegate day on public courses or at the value of the lost business whichever is greater.

Delegates will be responsible for any damage they cause to our data, equipment or premises to the value of resulting losses. Highlander will not take any responsibility whatever for theft or losses to clients belongings left at our premises, or to any damage or loss resulting from attending our premises or our courses/services anywhere in the world. Valuables, computer equipment, personal property, etc, should never be left unattended, even if our instructors/consultants and staff offer to look after these items during breaks, as we have no means of verifying and insuring the items and any losses that may occur. A course is assumed to be progressing to the client’s satisfaction until a client points out to the instructor that it is not and details the differences between the pre-agreed course content and the content actually being delivered. If appropriate, the instructor may vary the content from that point on in line with requests, as long as all delegates agree and it is reasonable to expect the instructor to do so.

Delivery Policy

Bigrockdesigns generally delivers our training courses at our customsied training center in Belfast. We also deliver course on site when this is preferred by the client.
