These business terms and conditions may be unilaterally changed by ALEF. The rights and obligations of the client and of ALEF are always governed by the prevailing version of the Civil Code effective at the time the order was made to ALEF; this version of the wording of the T&Cs is binding for the client.
It is the responsibility of the client to continuously monitor the prevailing wording of the T&Cs (the wording of the T&Cs is regularly marked with the version number) and to be aware of its contents. All versions of the T&Cs, including the prevailing version, are published on ALEF’s website: https://training.alef.com/hr
Training prices are listed on the website. The listed prices do not include VAT.
2. Ordering a training
The training order can be submitted via the website https://training.alef.com/hr or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each order must include the necessary data for invoicing and registering, namely:
- data of the legal entity or natural person (the client) for which the invoice will be issued, including the registered office and tax number if the entity or person is subject to VAT;
- an explicit reference that the order is governed by the rights and obligations contained in the prevailing T&Cs published on ALEF’s website (https://training.alef.com/hr), which the client is aware of and abides by;
- the names and contact information of the training participants;
- the type of training and the date the participant(s) wish to attend;
- the selected method of payment (invoice, ALEF Training Credits or Cisco Learning Credits, if available to the client).
Upon receipt of the order, an ALEF representative from the ALEF Training Team will send the order confirmation to the client and each registered participant within 48 hours if the training date is available. In the event that the date of the selected training is unavailable, the client and each registered participant will be contacted with alternative dates.
The participants will receive an electronic invitation at least one week before the start of training with more detailed organizational information such as the training start date, the venue, and parking options.
3. Paying for a training
The participation fee includes teaching, access to computer technology, study materials and the issuance of a certificate of completion of the training. The price of the training also includes various soft drinks and a hot lunch if the training takes place on the premises of ALEF Training Center. In the event the training is held off company premises, refreshments and lunch are subject to a separate agreement between the client and ALEF.
Repeat clients can make payment after the training typically within 30 business days of receiving an invoice. New clients will be issued a deposit invoice which must be paid prior to commencement of the training. Following the training, the client is issued an invoice - a tax certificate. In the event payment is received timely and in full, each subsequent training will be payable as in the case of repeat ALEF clients (i.e. payment is due within 30 business days of receiving the invoice).
If the company has ALEF Training Credits (ATC), these may be used to pay for the given training. The ALEF Training Team will provide information about the available credits and how to use them.
If the company has Cisco Learning Credits (CLC) available, these can only be used for certified Cisco training.
