If course cost is more than $1000, the remainder of the payment is required on completion of the course . Qualifications will not be provided until payment is made in full.
For participants who book into short courses, prior approval can be given for those who wish to make payment on the day of training. Participants who pay in advance and/or on the day of training will be issued with a receipt.
Payments made in advance , will be held until the course is completed and guaranteed in a separate holding account. Payment will not be spent until the course is complete and be available should a refund be required.
Participants must arrive 15 minutes prior to the starting time of the course. Participants who are more than 15 minutes late will not be permitted into the course. Participants who do not provide correct identification for course prerequisites or complete workbooks as a pre requisite will not be permitted to attend training.

It is the responsibility of the company to ensure participants are aware of the training details eg start time/location, and have the necessary pre requisites for the course booked to deliver.
Attendee replacements can be made anytime prior to course commencement providing substitution is acceptable by the trainer and the replacement participant meets all course perquisites.
