Additional charges may apply such as:
- Re-marking of an assessment
- Replacement of award/qualification/statement of attainment
- Additional tutorial support
- Debt collection fees
• If enrolment requirements are not met, such as providing a valid USI, a government funded course cannot be issued to the student and therefore will be required to pay the fee for service rates.
Construction Training Fund (CTF) rebates
- Students who apply for the CTF rebate on eligible courses, pay the gap fee and are found to not be eligible, the student is required to pay the remainder of the fee.
- Training courses consist of either a full qualification or some individual Units of Competency. Assessment is the evaluation of your competency against the standards and criteria of each Unit of Competency.
- You will receive details of each Unit of Competency upon commencement of training, as part of the course reference material, and this will outline the criteria on which you will be assessed.
- Mine Training Australia ensures that assessments are valid, reliable, flexible, fair and meet the requirements of currency, sufficiency and authenticity. Assessments at Mine Training Australia are only conducted by qualified Assessors who meet the stated trainer & assessor credential requirements.
