Frequently Asked Questions: Education & Research
How do I get more information about a course?
How do I book a place on a course?
Application forms are available from the Education Secretary on 061 485863/841. You can also book online at www.milfordcarecentre.ie or email email@example.com or post the application form enclosed with the brochure.
How do I pay for a course?
All courses must be paid for in advance of attendance. Payment may be made by cheque, postal order, cash (if paying in person to the Education Office) or an invoice can be arranged if an organisation is funding your place. Receipts will be issued on the day of the course, please collect these from the education secretaries’ office.
How do I know if I have been accepted for a place on the course?
On receipt of your application form and payment, a place will be allocated to you and you will be informed via email.
What happens to my fee if the course is cancelled?
Milford Care Centre reserves the right to cancel courses and will provide a full refund to applicants where this occurs. We endeavour to let participants know as soon as possible in advance, via email.
What happens to my fee if I cannot attend?
If the applicant is unable to attend the course following payment of the course fee and provides more than 28 days notice, a full refund will be given. If 10-28 days notice of cancellation is given, 50% of the fee will be refunded and where less than 10 days notice is provided of cancellation, course fees will not be refunded.
Can you run courses off site in my workplace?
If you would like us to facilitate a course away from Milford Care Centre this may be possible to arrange, please contact us. We also have the capacity to broadcast sessions over the internet, so if you are unable to attend physically you could listen in over the internet – please contact us if you would like to do this.
I am interested in a course but the date for it has passed, what can I do?
The Education, Research and Professional Development Service in Milford Care Centre is responsive to need and if there is a course that you have missed or where the dates do not suit, please contact us and tell us and we may be able to accommodate you at a later date.
Will I get handouts when I arrive?
Handouts, where possible, will be sent by email in advance and if you require them on the day, please print them out in advance.
