PAYMENT: Learners will be invoiced per term before training commences. The first term will include course fees for the term, any administration and resource charges. These charges are non-refundable.

Payment is required within 14 days of invoice being issued. Payment can be made by direct debit or bank transfer. A 2% late fee payment may be added to invoices not paid within a reasonable time. A payment plan can be negotiated with the Director if the learner is unable to meet training costs.

No refund is paid if a learner fails to attend for the term. Once enrolled in the term learners need to be committed and aim to complete at least three units of competency per term. If they withdraw, they can choose to enrol in another term within a twelve-month period or leave and receive a statement of attainment.

RPL APPLICATION – ADULT STUDENTS ONLY
Recognition of Prior Learning, also referred to as RPL, is an experience, knowledge and skill assessment process that allows you to attain a nationally-recognised qualification or statement/s of attainment, based on skills and knowledge you will have gained through previous experience – recognised as either formal training or as informal (i.e. on the job) learning. Students may apply for a full course, Unit of Competency or Cluster of Units as an RPL. RPL is not recommended for High School students. An initial RPL is conducted and if any gaps are recognised the training will be done to suit the unit of competency and the applicants. Gap Units are charged on top of RPL fees.
