What is the difference between Knowcrunch's courses in a classroom and the e-learning courses?
The main difference between in-class courses and e-learning courses lies in the mode of delivery and the learning environment:
Mode of Delivery:
In-class courses are conducted in a physical classroom setting where students attend sessions in person, interact with the instructor and fellow classmates face-to-face, and participate in group activities. On the other hand, e-learning courses are delivered through our website platform, allowing students to access course materials, lectures, and assignments remotely via the internet.
In-class courses provide a structured learning environment where students engage in real-time discussions, receive immediate feedback from the instructor, and collaborate with peers through in-person interactions. E-learning courses offer a more flexible learning environment, allowing students to access course materials at their own convenience and progress through the content at their own pace. Interaction with instructors and peers typically occurs through our private Facebook group or virtual meetings via ZOOM.
In-class courses often adhere to a fixed schedule, requiring students to attend classes at specific times and locations. E-learning courses offer greater flexibility as students can access the material anytime, anywhere, allowing them to balance their studies with other commitments.
In-class courses may offer more personalized attention from instructors due to the smaller class sizes and direct interactions. E-learning courses, although lacking face-to-face interactions, often provide individualized learning experiences through interactive multimedia content, self-assessment quizzes, and adaptive learning technologies.
Ultimately, the choice between in-class and e-learning courses depends on personal preferences, learning style, and availability. In-class courses provide a traditional classroom experience with immediate feedback and face-to-face interactions, while e-learning courses offer flexibility, convenience, and self-paced learning opportunities through online platforms.
In which language are your courses and teaching material held?
Our course materials, including videos and files, are available exclusively in the Greek language.
Is there a specific enrollment deadline for this course in this particular city?
The only deadline is the kick-off day of the course and of course upon availability of seats/tickets. However, it is important to note that our tickets can sell out months or days before the kick-off day. Therefore, it is advisable to ensure you secure/book your seat the earliest possible and do not miss out on the opportunity to participate in the course.
Prices & payments
How do I pay? Do prices include taxes?
You register and pay online via our website. We offer convenient online payment options, allowing you to pay in a step-by-step manner using either your personal or business credit or debit card. Alternatively, you can also make the payment using your personal or business bank account through SEPA direct debit that retrieves money from your bank automatically.
The prices for all ticket options include all fees and applicable taxes, ensuring transparency in the pricing. Additionally, each time you make a payment, you will receive an immediate receipt/invoice for your records.
Please note that your registration is considered binding, and a payment is required prior to commencing your training.
Do you offer monthly installment plans and how many? Are they interest-free?
We offer interest-free monthly installment options for both our in-class and e-learning courses. These installments are only available for payments made using credit or debit cards.

You can opt to split the total cost into up to two (2) monthly payments. Please always check the tickets information for our updated policy on monhtly installments for each course.
E-learning video on demand courses
You can opt to split the total cost into up to two (2) or three (3) monthly payments depending on the course. Please always check the tickets information for our updated policy on monhtly installments for each course. Some courses have no monthly installements at all.
Please be aware that missing an installment will result in the suspension of your account, and you will be unable to access the course until the due payment is settled.
Do you accept/support programs like LAEK?
Our programs do not collaborate with the Greek LAEK program or any similar programs. This decision is primarily based on the fact that our headquarters are located in the US and our priority is to maintain the highest quality of educational materials and instruction. When partnering with the Greek LAEK program, there are specific guidelines and requirements that need to be followed. Unfortunately, adhering to these guidelines may compromise the integrity and quality of our curriculum. Therefore, we have chosen not to participate in such collaborations to ensure that we can deliver the best possible educational experience to our students.
Can my company pay for the course? Can you issue an invoice?
Certainly! Your company can make the payment for the course and receive an invoice. During the registration process, after entering the participant's information, you can provide the corporate details in the billing information step. In the subsequent step, you will have the option to select a business payment method to complete the transaction (company's debit or credit card or company's business bank account via the SEPA direct debit payment option).
The system declined my card, what can I do?
Our system informs you for the reasons we decline your card (e.g. incorrect card number, incorrect CVV number, incorrect cardholder name, expired card, insufficient funds). If there is no specific information about the decline from our system, then the first thing you should do is contact your bank and investigate the reason of the decline.
Can I cancel? If yes, until when? Do I get a refund?
For our courses taking place in a classroom we offer refunds in case of cancellation. You can cancel anytime before the course's kick-off day, but please pay attention to our cancellation & refunds policy:
• Cancellations received 15 days before the course will receive 100% refund of the amount paid.
• Cancellations received 14 - 1 days before the course will receive 50% refund of the amount paid.
• Cancellations received after the start of the course WILL NOT be eligible for ANY refund and you must complete all of your outstanding payments (if you choose to pay in installments).
