/ Conville Course Missed Applications
How did you find out? Is it simply that they did not send you a confirmation e-mail? I got one the next working day after I sent in my application.
I got an e-mail confirming I'd applied for it, however I am yet to find out if I've got a place on one of the courses.
I'd ring them and explain, and maybe send them a screenshot of your outbox. I've found them more than reasonable about stuff like this. On the other hand it is already pretty far down the line, they might not be able to do much beyond put you on a waiting list.
Other than that minor hiccup a great course and a perfect stepping stone to bigger things. Stay for at least 3 or 4 weeks after the course to consolidate and tick easy stuff otherwise you'll waste your next season re-learning it all on the Petite Verte and Cosmiques arete (see my galley for a picture of why not to do the Cosmiques on a busy day!).
Looks like I will have to wait and get out again next winter
I read a warning that whilst writing application I should save it encased the website crashes and I loose it sort of thing
"PLEASE NOTE: Emails do not always reach their destination and it is therefore applicant's responsibility to contact PYB if email notification has not been received by the end of April. Successful applicants will be expected to confirm acceptance of the place and provide prompt payment."
We're really sorry to hear you have experienced complications with your application for the Conville courses. Although the numbers appear to be small it seems you are not the only one who has had difficulty applying.
To ensure no one misses out on this opportunity we have re-opened the application form and extended the deadline for applications until Monday 29th April.
The application forms can be accessed here:
You will receive an email confirming your application has been received.
As an alternative you can download a PDF and submit the application form by post or fax.
We'd like to apologise once again for any inconvenience and wish you the best of luck with your application.
When can we expect to find out if our applications have been successful?
This is great news for everyone like myself who thought we'd missed the chance. Thanks to everyone who got the applications open again!
