I don't have a hillingdongrid.org e-mail address - can I use the school e-mail address to register?
What do I do if I haven’t received a confirmation?
I am on a waiting list - what does this mean?
If a course is already full when you apply you will automatically be placed on a waiting list. If we receive cancellations from delagates who are already registered, delagates on the waiting list will automatically be allocated places based on a first come - first served basis.

Is my course still running?
Occasionally we may need to cancel or move a course. If this is the case we will e-mail every delegate on the register to inform them the course has been cancelled and to offer an alternative where possible.
