Refund Policy

Cancellation by us

  • We may regretfully have to cancel courses if we do not get enough enrolments in which case you will get a full refund.

  • We may choose to close a course if there is a high level of non-attendance or withdrawal, in which case a proportional refund may be made.

Cancellation due to extreme weather

Wherever possible, we will offer replacement or extended sessions to make up for sessions cancelled due to extreme weather, tutor illness or other unforeseen reason.

Cancellation by the learner

If you need to withdraw from a course and inform us in writing at least a week before the course is due to start, you will be eligible for a refund minus a $20 administration charge.

If you withdraw from a course at any other time, you will not be eligible for a refund.

No refunds are given after commencement of a course to ensure course viability.
