Enrolments and withdrawals

All enrolment applicants must fill in an electronic course enrolment form and submit that to Xperts.

Each applicant must electronically confirm his/her understanding and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Enrolment.

A person may enrol through an agent (for example as part of a workplace group enrolment). In that situation the agent is confirming that each person they enrol agrees to these Enrolment Terms and Conditions.

When Xperts receives an enrolment application a person may be offered a place on the course. This offer is confirmed upon payment of fees in full.

Xperts reserves the right to decline any enrolment.

In special circumstances Xperts may allow deferment of a confirmed enrolment to a later course. Applications for deferment must be made to the Manager of Xperts in writing. If a deferment is granted, an extra administration fee of $35 exc GST may be charged.

Late applications may be accepted at the discretion of the Manager, Xperts in consultation with the course tutor. That decision will be final and binding.
