Thereafter we will invoice the full course or exam fee for all cancellations. You are free to name a replacement rather than cancel attendance altogether.
3.3. In the event that we cancel a course or exam because of force majeure or other unforeseeable circumstances (for example, in case of accident or illness of the instructor) the liability of Fast Lane Institute for Knowledge Transfer (Switzerland) AG is limited to the refunding of course or exam fees to participants who have arrived at the training location.

3.4.1. Important information regarding the purchase of a Redhat Bundle (e.g. RH135, RH-RH255, RH-RH300, etc.): The bundle price is only granted, if the course and the exam takes place in the same country. However, you have the right to not the complete course and the exam within the same week. Doing so you acknowledge, that you are aware of the risk, that single elements of the bundle could get cancelled, i.e. the exam or the course. If you cannot attend at any of the alternate dates in the same country, you are allowed – but only for an extra charge/fee – to attend at an alternate date in another country. In these cases the extra charges/fees are disclosed before the rebooking/rescheduling.

The fees are dependent on the course or exam, the country and the local currency.
