Payment instructions

In order to keep our costs low, we really appreciate being paid online, via Paypal, by debit card or credit card. (Note that you do NOT have to have a Paypal account to use this payment method.) Using one of these methods is not only easier for us to administer, but your booking will also be confirmed immediately.  

If you cannot pay online then we also accept “offline” payments either by cheque or bank transfer directly into the SFTG Lloyds bank account. Please note that if you pay offline the confirmation process is slower and may result in your booking not being accepted if the course becomes full during the administration process.
If you are a member, remember to log in to the website with your SFTG username and password in order to get the discounted course fee rate.
To reserve places at any event in the calendar, select the number and type of tickets you want.

Then, to confirm your booking, for online payment press the “Buy Now” button or for offline payment the white “pay by cheque/bank transfer” button.
