Would your bridge club benefit from new members? Is your club interested in hosting a Club Teacher Training course? If you would like to know more please call Jacks Morcombe on 01296-317218 (Wed-Fri) and help bring new players to the game.

Online training courses are arranged on a demand led basis. The course is suitable for teachers intending to deliver lessons remotely. Please contact Jacks Morcombe (jacqueline@ebedcio.org.uk) if you would like to attend a future course.

To Book
Either call Lisa Miller (Mon, Wed and Thur) on 01296 317217 or select the 'Book Courses' option available through the utilities tab via My EBU. Online bookings are for full price places only. Please read the information below for discounted bookings.

Concessions for EBU Affiliated Clubs
For all bookings received from, invoiced to, and paid by, an EBU affiliated club, a 20% discount applies (this discount is funded by the EBU). The discount is only offered to clubs paying for their teachers to attend. There is no limit to the number of attendees from each club. All other bookings are at full price and places are subject to availability.

Free Places for Affiliated Clubs
Clubs affiliated to the EBU may receive a 'free place'. They should book by calling Lisa Miller on 01296-317217 (Mon, Wed and Thur) and a club official should email Jonathan Lilycrop (EBU Club Liaison Officer jonathan@ebu.co.uk) authorising the attendance of their club member.

At the time of booking through Lisa (01296-317217) clubs must request a free place and will be required to pay in full. Upon a member's completion of the course, the cost will be refunded to the club (via their EBU account) within a month. Each club may only apply for one free place every two calendar years i.e. if a free place is given for a course in 2021 the club will next be able to receive a free place in 2023. If receiving a free place (unless in exceptional circumstances) a club must remain affiliated for the following two years.

Applications for a free place should only be made in the spirit for which it is intended – as part of a club-wide effort to grow membership through the development of a teaching programme.

Course Pricing
The full course price from 1st April 2021 is £220 which includes an annual EBTA membership fee of £45. Course fees are adjusted quarterly to reflect the length of EBTA membership which ends on 31st March. All affiliated clubs receive a 20% discount.

Cancellation charges
We are always sympathetic to a change in circumstances but cancellations should be made as soon as possible to avoid any forfeiture of entry fee. If a cancellation is made more than six weeks prior to the commencement of the course a full refund will be given. Cancellations made between the commencement and six weeks prior to the course will incur the following charges:
Within 4 - 6 weeks: 50% of the course fee will be refunded.
Less than 4 weeks prior to the course: no refund will be given.
Cancellation charges will not apply for attendees transferring to alternative Club Teacher Training courses.

In the event of EBED rescheduling a course, a full refund or option to transfer will apply. Please call Lisa Miller, EBED Education Coordinator, on 01296-317217 for further information.
Please note: EBED are unable to reimburse delegates for additional costs such as accommodation, travel etc. if a course is rescheduled.
