Terms and conditions
Terms and conditions of the ECOintention trainings
By registering for one of our workshops, courses or the
vocational training (hereafter called “training”), you enter
into an agreement with Center for ECOintention. An agreement
should include clarity about what the student can expect
from the training Institute and what the training Institute
can expect from the student. This is what we mean by the
terms and conditions. The terms and conditions are published
on the website of Center for ECOintention.
Center for ECOintention: training Institute that offers the
ECOintention Practitioners vocational training. Student: a
natural person who has registered for a course organized
and/or offered by Center for ECOintention. Course: every
workshop or part of the ECOintention Practitioner training
offered or organized by Center for ECOintention, one of her
staff or freelance trainers, delivered in the Netherlands or

the option to sign up for lunch for an extra fee. The course
fee excludes the cost of the books “In Resonance with
Nature” and “The Universe Loves a Happy Ending” by Hans
Andeweg. The Course fee excludes participation in the
practice days. In the second, third and fourth years of the
training the course fee includes an amount for individual
mentoring of your project.

amount will not be reimbursed if the training is cancelled.

after receipt of the invoice by the student, and at least
one week before the start of the training. If you withdraw
from the training up to 4 weeks before the start you will be
reimbursed 50% of the full amount. If you withdraw less than
4 weeks before the start of the training you will be

fee is part of the course fees and is an agreement between
the student and the Guardian. If the Guardian’s fee has not
been paid by 1 October of the relevant course year then the
student will be personally responsible for paying it. The
amount will be paid back to the student should the
Guardian’s fee be paid to Center for ECOintention by the
Guardian at a later date.

the training then a request to annul the contract and
