General terms of business for RCI-international and its associations

General Terms of Business

With its Course Catalogue and the option to register via a data bank, RCI-international offers a platform for course announcements, but is not the organizer of these courses. When reserving a place in a training course, you will be establishing a business agreement with the individual organizers (TCI instructors, Member Associations or groups of organizers governed by various legal structures).

A business agreement with the party offering a course must always be in keeping with these general terms of business. If our terms of business are declined, even in part, a business agreement will not take place.

1. Terms of Participation

Seminars are generally open to everyone. Exceptions are noted in certain individual seminar announcements. TCI seminars are not therapy seminars. An average ability to work under pressure is therefore expected of all participants. When registering for a course, participants take responsibility for their actions.

2. Course Registration

Course registration is carried out online at Your booking will be automatically confirmed (at which time a contract is concluded) and sent to the office in charge of administering your course. In exceptional cases, it is possible to book a course, in writing or by telephone, by contacting RCI-International’s Main Office in Berlin.

3. Course Fees

Members of RCI Member Associations pay discounted fees. In general, every seminar provides for one or two scholarships for its participants belonging to RCI Member Associations. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please inform the course administrator, who will be able to provide you with more detailed information about the conditions.

4. Payment

Course fees are to be transferred to the account specified by the course administrator. Payment in installments can also be arranged with the course administrator.

5. Accommodation

Course fees do not include room and board, unless otherwise specified. When registering you will automatically be reserving accommodation as well. Should you wish to book your own accommodation, please inform your course administrator. Otherwise, you may be liable to cancellation fees.

6. Cancellation

If you cancel participation in a course after receiving confirmation of registration, a cancellation fee of € 25 applies. If you cancel later than eight weeks prior to the first day of the course, the cancellation fee is equal to half of the course fee plus a cancellation fee for the accommodation booked by the course leader, if applicable. If cancelled less than 8 calendar days before the start of the event, the full amount of the participation fee will be due. Cancellations must be submitted in writing (sent by surface or e-mail) and addressed to the individual course administrator. Cancellations do not take effect until they have been confirmed by the course administrator. We advise you to take out a cancellation insurance policy. If the seminar is cancelled by the course leader or if it is possible to fill your place with a participant from the waiting list, your entire payment will be returned. Any further liability is excluded. Seminars generally take place when there are at least eight participants.

7. Certificates

Upon completion of the seminar, you will receive a certificate of participation for your study book, as well as a certificate confirming completion of further professional training, unless you have received a receipt to this effect.

8. Membership

You can become a member of one of RCI-international’s regional or professional groups. Membership in a professional group is subject to certain requirements. Local offices or representatives can provide information on membership.

9. Restriction of liability

Seminars offered in our course program and on our homepage have been carefully selected and reviewed. We are not responsible for mistakes or typing errors, and you may not claim damages as a result of erroneous information.

10. Data protection clause
