FEES & REFUNDS
Course fees are set at competitive rates and will be advised prior to the enrolment in a course. These fees may vary from course to course. For up to date course fees please refer to our course outline brochures or speak to a representative from our administration team.
All fees will be paid according to the fee structure provided prior to enrolment. It is our policy that the course fee will be all-inclusive. Participants will not be 'surprised' by unexpected requirements, fees or expenses.
Course fee inclusions:
Support and coaching
Any associated participant workbooks, handouts or manuals
Classrooms and facilities
Access to any specialised equipment necessary in the training.
Where additional resources normally associated with a program of study are required (e.g. reference material, research documents, own computer) the participant will be clearly advised of exactly what is required in the pre-course materials or enrolment confirmation for the program.
Course fees can be accessed by downloading the course outline brochures from our website.
PACKAGING & DISCOUNTS
Where several units/courses are packaged together to provide a course offering, a single fee will be charged which may represent a discount over the individual course fees. The negotiation of such discounts is managed and approved by our General Operations Manager or Business Administration Manager. If you would like to discuss discounted course fees, please contact our office.
NON-REFUNDABLE APPLICATION FEES
An application (administration) fee of $75.00 is payable on all courses over the amount of $750.00 delivered by RMTS. Application (administration) fees are NOT refundable.
