 COVID Cancellation/Re-scheduling of courses 

Due to pandemic and border closures/restrictions we try our best to accommodate all our students by giving them options to join via zoom/online courses or we give course credit for a year for them to join the course at their leisure without any fees.


Postponement or Cancellation by DMA:

Courses can only go ahead with a minimum number of participants and can also be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances out of our control.  If DMA needs to cancel or postpone a course, we will supply you with the same value in course credit (redeemable on DMA Education courses) to be used at a time and location preference that suits you.

Should you be travelling interstate or overseas for your course it is your responsibility to make all arrangements noting booking cancellation policies (the majority of providers have no fee cancellations or voucher arrangements) and/or take out appropriate travel insurance.  DMA is not liable for any travel costs for participants as a result of cancellation by either party.

Cancellation due to special circumstances:  if you have registered for and/or started your course and need to cancel due to special circumstances (bereavement within immediate family, debilitating injury or illness, etc), DMA will review each individual case. Proof of circumstances must be provided. Personal reasons, such as weddings, work travel, holidays, etc are not included as a special circumstance.


Photographs and/or Video Release:

General class photographs are occasionally taken for use in Facebook, print and other electronic marketing purposes and in participating in a DMA course, the participant agrees to such use unless they advise to the contrary. Pre-course screening forms must be completed prior to the commencement of the course and one or two participants are chosen to be used as Case Studies.  If selected, the Participant agrees to give permission to DMA to use their case study on the website and/or via email to other participants as part of the post-course studies.


Accident Waiver:

It is understood as a participant that you use the facilities and equipment at the venue of the DMA course at your own risk.

As the exercises can be provocative, we do not insist on self-mastery or that all participants do all exercises. The focus is on clinical application and patient-specific selection to develop individualized clinical pathways.
