E-learning Terms and Conditions

Purchasing online

Astutis e-learning courses are delivered to you over the internet using the Absorb Learning Management System (LMS).

Upon receiving payment for your chosen course, if you are a new Astutis e-learner your account will be created, you will be enrolled on the course and you will receive an email confirming your account logon details and another confirming enrolment on the course.

If you are an existing Astutis learner, upon receiving payment you will be enrolled on the course and you will receive an email confirming this.


Due to the nature of the intellectual property within the course content Astutis does not offer refunds once you have been enrolled on a course and logged into the Absorb LMS.

A full refund is available within fourteen days providing you have not logged into the LMS.

Course access

Astutis cannot guarantee that access to the course materials will be uninterrupted.

However the relationship between Astutis and Absorb LMS is such that Absorb LMS will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the LMS available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for:

  • planned downtime, of which Absorb shall give us at least 8 hours’ notice and of which Astutis will inform you as soon as possible, bearing in mind the time difference between Canada, where Absorb are based, and the UK where Astutis are based; or
  • any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Absorbs reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labour problems (other than those involving Absorbs employees), or Internet service provider failures or delays.

Any other use will infringe the intellectual property rights of Astutis for which Astutis reserves the rights to bring legal proceedings.

About us

"I've found Astutis to be very helpful and engaging. The e-learning package and printed course material are well structured, very easy to follow and learn from. I've also found the tutor a great source of support and guidance: a very knowledgeable and good trainer."
