The process for registering for CEBU courses is changing from 2018.  Registration will now be via Trybooking whether you are paying via cost centre transfer, invoice or credit card. The Trybooking link is available on the information page for each course.  Please note there is an additional Trybooking fee of 30 cents per registration which will be applied when your register online.

Internal participants:
Please contact Marian Chandler via email prior to accessing Trybooking if you want to organise a cost centre transfer or invoice.  Marian will provide you with a unique promotional code which will allow you to proceed to the checkout without entering payment details. The cost centre transfer process remains the same whereby you should advise your admin/finance person to arrange the transfer of funds from your cost centre to CEBU 68092 and CC Marian into the correspondence so that payment can be confirmed.  Please DO NOT book directly through Trybooking then organise a reimbursement/cost centre transfer after the event. This creates an additional workload for both CEBU and the finance department.

Payment by credit card: Proceed directly to Trybooking and follow the prompts to register.

Cancellation of registration:  No refund of payment will be paid for cancellations or swapping of course dates unless received 7 calendar days prior to the course start date.
