10.2 If you are using a credit agreement from Exalt Training Ltd. to pay for a programme of learning/course of study and you or your employer is paying this by instalments, you or they agree to pay the instalments promptly and, on the dates, specified in the credit agreement, irrespective of the speed at which you are studying. If for whatever reason a person other than the learner is paying for the course by instalment plan, the learner will be an individual who is deemed culpable if any payments are missed unless specified in the credit agreement terms.
10.3 If you are paying by instalments and you miss a payment, we will notify you by telephone, email and then letter. If payment is not made within 5 working days of the issue of the letter, the course account and study will be locked/stopped. We reserve the right to charge a £40.00 administration fee in these cases to unlock the account once payment is made (this will be looked at on a case-by-case basis). Only one £40.00 administration fee can be charged during a calendar month. Please refer to 10.7 if further payments are not made.
10.4 Payment can be through an Instalment Plan option; Exalt Training Ltd will recover the credit agreement over agreed monthly instalments (maximum of five instalments) from the month after your initial deposit is taken to enrol you to your chosen course of study. These payments must be actioned by the debtor and we recommend setting up a standing order to ensure no payments are missed. These payments will be in line with the schedule highlighted in the credit agreement and sent electronically to the e-mail address given during your enrolment and in your first invoice.
10.5 If you have chosen to pay for the course by the instalment option; you agree to the schedule of payments in the credit agreement given at time of purchase/enrolment. If you are unable to pay your instalments, please email email@example.com
10.6 The course fees are due in full even if you decide to withdraw from the course after your mandated 14 calendar day cooling off period. In the event of non-payment of instalments where the instalment is more than 1 week overdue, the learner/customer will be suspended immediately upon non-payment. This will remain the case until the credit agreement is corrected and funds paid to bring the account up to date. Please note that this can seriously affect your chances of completing the qualification. Any missed payments or insufficient funds on agreed collection dates, as detailed in the credit agreement Invoice will incur a £40.00 administration charge. This charge will only be taken once in any calendar month period. However, the charge can be taken multiple times if a credit agreement remains unpaid over several months. A collection officer will be appointed to collect any monies owed which remain unpaid. Additional costs incurred through this process will be passed on to the debtor.
10.7 The credit agreement offered by Exalt Training Limited is set over a max of 6-month period and is 0% APR. Different instalment plans can be negotiated at the point of sale, but no credit agreement is allowed to exceed 12 months in duration. Once a course of study has begun (which will be highlighted on the credit Agreement Schedule of payments) the fees are due on the dates held within the credit agreement schedule.
10.8 In the event of notification to withdraw and where an instalment plan has been agreed, the Debtor, at time of cancellation, will be required to repay the remaining credit agreement balance in full as noted in the terms laid out in paragraph 10.7
