Payment, Refund and Completion Policy
Examples of this could be:
- Online Learning Management System (LMS) unavailable for a long period of time (e.g. weeks at a time) without tutors providing alternative means to reading, lecture and assessment materials
- Lecturers for a Face to Face course not turning up to instruct classes during allotted times (e.g. 5:30 – 9:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays, Saturdays 10am – 5pm)
Refunds are not issued if students choose not to complete coursework, do not attend class or find themselves too busy to complete the course.
Students must make every attempt to come to class to learn and participate in the practicals and make use of the Learning Management System as backup and support to learning.
Contracts cannot be canceled and students who become financially unable to continue payments can apply to have payments adjusted and service charges may apply. In severe medical cases, a request can be made to hold or reduce payments or a reasonable extension duration can be negotiated.
The cooling off period after the contract has been agreed to (signed electronically or by hand) is 10 business days.
Students taking longer than the agreed amount of time are required to pay an additional $100 per program stage (module) extension fee to cover costs associated with re-enrolment, marking and administration. Extensions can be purchased from the extensions page.
Certificates will not be issued until full payment has been made to the Fitness Institute, all assessments are marked competent and all work placement hours are completed. In the case of the “Combo” course (Certificate III and IV in Fitness), a student may request their Certificate III on completion of all module assessments, work placement hours and payment of at least half the total amount of the contract.
More information can be found at ACCC with regards to contracts.
