Complaints Procedure

A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction concerning Knxia Limited’s product or service.  Knxia Limited takes all complaints extremely seriously and all staff are trained and committed to rectify any problem as soon as it is brought to their attention.

It is recognized that a customer who has a complaint dealt with to their complete satisfaction is likely to become a repeat customer.  Therefore we ask that if you are dissatisfied with the service you have received that you bring this to our attention as soon as possible by speaking with your course tutor in the first instance.

Should this fail to provide you with a satisfactory resolution, or you feel it is inappropriate to address your complaint to the tutor, then please contact a Learning and Development Specialist via one of the following options:

Call 01501 473730

Email contact@knxia.com

Write to Knxia Limited, Bathgate Business Centre, 6 Whitburn Road, Bathgate, EH48 1HH.

Knxia Limited asks that you raise your complaint as soon as possible after the event so that we have the opportunity to investigate fully.  The Learning and Development Specialist will investigate your complaint and respond to you within seven days from the date your complaint is received.  If we expect it to take longer than this to investigate and respond to your complaint, we will advise you of this.

Escalating Your Initial Complaint If You Remain Dissatisfied

In the unlikely event that you remain unhappy after your complaint has been investigated and a decision has been reached then you may escalate your complain to a Director.  Please include any further items for consideration and state clearly why you remain unhappy with the decision taken so far.  The Director will investigate in full and respond to you within fourteen days from the date your escalation is received.  If the Director expects it to take longer than this to investigate and respond to your escalation, we will advise you of this.
