Discounts available on scheduled course places to:

  • Academic users - students, teachers and lecturers.
  • Delegates self-funding their training for career-progression purposes.
  • People working for a registered charity.
  • ISTC members.
  • Unemployed.

Multiple bookings

If you're booking several places on scheduled courses in one go, we offer discounted bundles for:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud – choose three courses.
  • AutoCAD – Essentials, Intermediate, 3D.
  • Revit – Essentials, Advanced.

If there isn’t a bundle for the courses you’re looking at, we offer the following discounts:

  • 2 places: 10%.
  • 3 or 4 places: 15%.
  • 5 or 6 places: 20%.

Price Guarantee

We want you to be certain that you're not paying over-the-odds. So, if you book a place on any scheduled (public) course and then find the same course at a lower price elsewhere, we will match that price.

To qualify for the price match:

  • The course you find must be comparable. By this we mean it must cover the same subject and be of the same duration or longer.
  • Hold the same accreditations as our course, e.g. if it's an Adobe application course it must be provided by an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC).
  • Be within 50 miles of our venue.
  • The lower price must be advertised on the other company's website.

Training Guarantee

We understand that, when you attend training at Armada, you're relying on us to teach you the skills you need.

If you attend a scheduled course and don't feel that you grasped the concepts or learned enough to put the skills into practice, you can repeat the same course free of charge.

This is our guarantee to you that you will learn the skills that you expect to.


  • Only the original delegate can re-attend.
  • The delegate must have attended the original class in full, and the request to re-attend must be made within three months.
  • The delegate must bring their original manual/materials.
  • Attendance is subject to availability.
