Registration for IAB Events

Requirements for Participation

In principle anyone interested in movement disorders can participate in most of the IAB courses. Medical degrees are not necessary for this.

Some of the courses, however, require special knowledge. Others can only be attended by therapists. You will find further details under Description of Abbreviations or you can contact us. Usually our events are offered as basic or advanced courses. The selection of special and quality management courses can be made according to major areas of interest.

Physician and health professionals are allowed to participate in all events for non-professionals.


We are looking forward to welcome you soon. Please register on the application form and go first to our webpage and contact us.

Registrations will be processed in order of arrival. The application (sent by mail, fax including signature, by Email or online) is binding and always obligates the payment of the course fee. IAB Academy will acknowledge receipt of the application.

Waiting List

If the number of registrations exceed the number of available seminar places, a waiting list will be set up. If already assigned places become available, applications on the waiting list will be considered in order they were received.

Cancellation and Termination

Cancellation notice can only be accepted in writing.
The notice period provided is in the interests of both parties:
To create a reliable training base for you, a long-term commitment is necessary. After all, the study target can only be achieved  based on a long-term participation. We offer several options before the start of the training so that you can form an opinion on our quality of training, e.g. in the form of individual counselling or workshops with our lecturers. For some of the seminars a test-lecture is possible.

You have the extraordinary right of termination (“serious ground”) in accordance with § 626 BGB, whereas the legal regulation in accordance with § 621 BGB will be excluded. Cancellation notice must always be submitted in writing by registered mail within the statutory two-week period. The period begins with the date you receive knowledge of the justified facts. After expiry of the deadline the extraordinary right to terminate the contract also expires. Please note that you have to provide evidence for an extraordinary reason within 14 days.

Apart from that the following special factors regarding termination of the contract apply according to the length of contract:

For all training courses the following applies one month before the start of training: For events with a duration of more than six months, notice of termination of the contract for the first time from the start of the course no later than six months, thereafter at intervals of six-month periods possible. The deadline for notice of termination is six weeks to the end of each interval.
The cancellation of an exam until two months before the first exam implies a cancellation fee of 25 Euro. After that period the total fee is charged. In case of cancellation or termination of training two months before the start a processing fee of 150 Euros will be charged. In case of cancellation of the training until one month before of the start or termination for “serious ground” an additional 20% of payable training fee as cancellation fee is charged. Note: Any cancellation fee will be re-credited when booking another training course within 24 months.
Should a participant cancel a training course, – regardless of the reason for the cancellation – a refund of the registration fee can be claimed of
50% when cancellation is made more than 6 weeks in advance
30% if cancellation is made 4-6 weeks in advance.
When even shorter term cancellations are made, the full course fee has to be paid – and possibly accommodation costs. The payer has no right to a refund of already paid course fees. It is up to the participant to prove in individual cases to IAB a lower loss than the above or provide a suitable replacement. If IAB accepts the replacement participant, no cancellation fee will be charged.
In multiple course training cancellation of a single course unit is not possible! The full course fee is payable also on non-participation of a single course unit. Cancellation notice will only be accepted in writing.


Cancellation of Seminars or Courses by IAB Academy

If for a seminar / course the minimum number of 5 participants cannot be achieved, IAB Academy reserves the right to cancel the event. Furthermore, IAB Academy reserves the right to cancel the seminar for a reason IAB may not be held responsible. In such cases the seminar fee will be refunded in the full amount by IAB Academy, if the same seminar cannot be held at a later date.
In order to be able to cope better with your specific issues and needs we invite you to inform us regularly which special and quality management courses would be of interest to you, so that IAB can take this information into consideration when planning courses.  It would be appreciated if you start participating in our Survey on Our Courses of IAB Academy straight away.

Payment by Installments

Upon presentation of a valid recurring SEPA direct debit (Debit Authorization and a SEPA Core Debit Mandate for Recurring Debits) installments can be arranged for training and education courses. The installments are based on the duration of training. A model calculation can be found at each training. The fees for the freely assignable seminars and courses must be paid before attending the course.

Fiscal Deductibility

Costs incurred directly for the training, such as training fees, travel expenses and the acquisition of literature you can declare partially or fully as business expenses or promotion expenses.
