  3. If a scheduled instalment payment is unsuccessful, ongoing access to study materials and other benefits will be suspended until payments are resumed.
  4. If there are delays in payments, it is a requirement that subsequent payments will be rescheduled so as to maintain the original payment plan completion date.
  5. If the agreed payment plan completion date cannot be achieved, and needs to be extended, the payment plan amount will also be adjusted accordingly.  For example: If a person signs up under the upfront price but cannot complete the payment within the 2 weeks from the deposit date as scheduled, their total price will then be adjusted to the 12 month payment plan price.

  7. 12 month payment plans may be put on hold by prior arrangement for up to 6 months (minimum of 1 month). In this time access to all parts of the certification course will be put on hold and the agreed price will remain unchanged.  After 6 months it is possible to extend this “On Hold” period for a further 6 months however your price will be reviewed based on recent price increases, demand, and the extension time required.  
  8. The course will recommence from the same place that access was removed. Eg. If payments went delinquent and access was removed at 13 weeks the course would then recommence at 13 weeks.
