Fees and registration

It is beneficial to all training participants to go through these guidelines. We provide important information for example on terms of cancellation and compensation of travel expenses.

This is a list of fees for Kepa trainings. As a member benefit, training fees are lowest for Kepa’s member organisations.

  • One-day training: 25€ for Kepa members, 50€ for other organisations, 100€ for other participants
  • Two-day training: 50€ for Kepa members, 100€ for other organisations, 200€ for other participants
  • Half day training: 15€ for Kepa members, 25€ for other organisations, 50€ for other participants
  • Some short trainings may also be free of charge.


Participation fees for each training is marked in Kepa’s training calendar on our website. All trainings are billed afterwards by sending an invoice to the address given.    

Registration 

Please register at our trainings using the online registration form provided on Kepa’s website in the training calendar. Please note that the online form must be filled in separately for each training, and each training participant. If you have any questions, please contact koulutus@kepa.fi

After sending the online form you will receive an automatic response that your registration has been noted. However, this does not yet mean that you have a place at the training. We will contact you separately and tell you if you have been accepted to attend. After this confirmation your registration is binding. 

Only participants who have been accepted prior to the training can attend. Any possible changes (for example if an organisation wishes to send another participant instead of the one registered) to the registration must be settled before the training by contacting koulutus@kepa.fi.    

Cancellation 

Cancellation of participation in a training must be done at least three days before the training by contacting koulutus@kepa.fi. If the participation is not cancelled in due time, a full fee is charged. In this case we also do not forward any training materials to the registrant.  

Travel compensation 

Kepa compensates travel costs of training participants according to the following guidelines: The maximum number of compensated participants per organisation is three (3), the travel is done inside Finland, and it is done between the participant’s home and the training location. We compensate according to the least expensive public transportation (bus or train). A deductible of 17 euros is subtracted from the final sum.  

The travel expenses are compensated after the training, when the participant has sent us a travel compensation invoice and original receipts. The invoice is paid only after we have received the participation fee.

  • We compensate one return ticket per training, regardless of the length of training. We do not compensate internal travel tickets in municipalities. If you travel from or to another location than your home town, we compensate only your travel from or to your home town.
  • Only very rarely and with justifiable reasons do we compensate using one’s own vehicle. Please contact koulutus@kepa.fi to discuss your situation. If we end up compensating your travel costs, the compensation sum is a ticket price of the least expensive corresponding public transportation. In this case please attach to your travel compensation invoice the information about price for corresponding public transportation.
  • Using a taxi is accepted only when it is the only way to travel a particular, reasonably short distance.  As a rule, we do not compensate flight tickets.

In case of disabilities we follow a more permissive interpretation of these guidelines, where needed.
