Frequently Asked Questions

The National Training Centre have been delivering respected educational programmes since 1985 and during that time we have had many questions asked by potential students before registration. Here you can find the answers to the questions we receive most often.

This course is open to all individuals with a keen interest in fascia and human anatomy.

Due to the nature of dissection courses whereby many items, including cadavers, must be booked and paid for at least six months ahead of the scheduled course date, the refund policy is as follows:.

Where written notice of non-participation is received, fees will be refunded on the following scale:

  • Twelve weeks or more before the course start date – 80% refund
  • Less than twelve weeks before the course start date – 0% refund

Refunds cannot be considered in any circumstances less than twelve weeks before the course start date. All fees must be paid in full at least 12 weeks before the course starting date.

In some instances refunds will have the the payment processing company’s transaction fee deducted from any amount due. This occurs when the payment processor will not refund the transaction fee to NTC. In instances where the payment processor do refund the transaction fee to NTC this will also be refunded.

You should not book any non-refundable travel or accommodation until the NTC office of administration has confirmed the course. This will be done once the minimum required number of registrations has been received. Dissection courses are generally oversubscribed and confirmation of the course is generally issued many months in advance.

Our dissection courses offer a mix of fixation methods depending on the venue. This can range from fresh from frozen, Theil Soft Fixed and the more traditional Formalin and Formaldehyde method of fixation. We reserve the right to make changes to the fixation if necessary.
