Terms & Conditions

REFUNDS: NO REFUNDS, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ARE AVAILABLE ONCE A COURSE HAS COMMENCED. If you have paid for a course which is subsequently cancelled, you will be notified and a full fee refund will be processed automatically. Refunds if processed are processed on a weekly basis and take approximately 2-3 weeks to present in the applicant bank account.

All other courses must remain viable and be self-financing: therefore a participant will not be permitted to commence a course/module unless the course/module has been paid for in full by the learner prior to commencement. 

VIABLE COURSES: For a course to commence, it is necessary to enrol a minimum number of participants. If this number is not reached, the course will be cancelled. 

FEE CONCESSION:  For a course to commence, it is necessary to enrol a minimum number of participants.  The disabled, registered unemployed and OAPs, may be entitled to a 25% reduction in tuition fees in certain viable courses if evidence to support that claim is presented at time of enrolment. This documentation must show your current status, home address & PPS number. A social welfare card is not acceptable, as it does not indicate current status. Refunds will not be made on evidence produced post-enrolment. Please note that a maximum of four places will be offered at the reduced rate per viable course. Concessions are not available on all courses.

COURSE DEFERRAL: Once a course commences, participants may not defer their place on that course to another term.
