Price Increase Effective from 15th April 2019

Due to rising costs, HOTA has unfortunately had to implement a price increase for a selected number of our courses only, with effect from the 15th April 2019.

We have avoided increasing the majority of our course prices for over 5 years but we can no longer absorb rising costs.

Confirmed bookings for courses starting after the 15th April including new bookings made up to the close of business on the 12th April will be charged at the old rate,  bookings made after this date will be subject to the new fee.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your valued custom.
