If you would like to attend one of our training sessions, this page covers how to book your place, course fees, and how to cancel if you need to.

Booking on a course

Staff and students can register to attend our courses using our online booking system DATES. We recommend that you book early as the number of places on each course is limited.

Please check any prerequisites listed in the course description before you register to ensure you are prepared and able to fully participate in the session.

We will send you confirmation of your place on a course within 2 days of receiving your booking request. You should not consider yourself booked on a course until you have received confirmation. Reminders will be sent out via email before the course is due to run.

If a course is full, you can register interest  and/or add your name to the waiting list. If a place then becomes available on that course we will contact you directly by email to confirm your booking.

We reserve the right to cancel a course if we do not have sufficient bookings. Most courses require a minimum of three delegates to run.

Course fees

The courses we run are free to attend for staff and students of the University.

For external delegates, fees per session are as follows:

Short sessions (2 hour): £60
Half-day courses: £75

Fees quoted relate to our suite of Microsoft Office training courses.


Please try to honour your commitment when you book a place on one of our courses. However, if you become unable to attend, please let us know so we can offer your place to someone else.

You can cancel your place in our online booking system DATES or by emailing ittraining@cranfield.ac.uk or by calling us on +44 (0)1234 754199.

Depending on the event, the charge for cancellation/non-attendance is as follows:

1 week's notice or less: £100
Non-attendance on day: £100

Your course fee (if applicable) will not be refunded. If you fail to attend three consecutive courses without informing us, we may cancel all your future bookings.
