Terms and Conditions
Australian Institute of Compliance Professionals (AICP) is committed to providing exceptional customer service and a quality online training experience. In the event that we are unable to fulfil your learning needs, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss arrangements to resolve the situation.
Direct debit payment plans are available as outlined on the individual product web pages. Note: All transactions are processed in $AUD.
At the time of enrolment, learners have agreed to pay a fee for a specific course and enrolment period. Your enrolment is considered to have commenced once you have been provided with login access to your course and course materials.
Students are provided with details of all fees and charges and copies of the relevant refund policy prior to enrolment. This policy outlines the circumstances in which a student or client may receive a full or partial refund of their course fees.
Should a student wish to withdraw prior to course commencement the following conditions shall apply:
- An application for refund of course fees must be made in writing using AICP’s refund request form. A refund of eighty percent (80%) will be made if the written request is received more than five (5) working days prior to course commencement.
- A 20% refund is available for requests received less than five (5) working days prior to course commencement.
- As a rule, no refund is available after the course commencement date. However, AICP will consider each application on a case by case basis.
Refunds will be considered on a pro-rata basis for participants who fall ill, are injured to the extent that they can no longer undertake the course or experience other extenuating circumstances, providing that the participant has not completed any assessment tasks or lessons associated with course and provides relevant supporting documentation such as a medical certificate or other substantiated documentary evidence.
Should participants wish to finalise incomplete units of competency in a future course, the original fee can be used as a credit towards that course within six months of initial payment. In all other cases, refunds are at the discretion of management and may be negotiated on an individual case-by-case basis.
Where our training programs have a limited number of places available, these will be filled in order of completed bookings. If for any reason, AICP closes or ceases to deliver any part of the qualification in which a client is enrolled, AICP will assist the learner in locating another provider or refund the portion of fees for which training and assessment have not been provided.
Pre-enrolment information provided to students is designed to ensure that all details relating to fees and charges are known prior to enrolment. A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total enrolment fee is payable on enrolment to any program or partial program. The balance of the program fees is to be paid as arranged with an individual student.
Your course may be suspended if payment has not been made in accordance with the agreed upon payment plan. AICP will attempt to recover outstanding course fees by contacting you directly via the contact details you provided to us at enrolment (or updated throughout the training period). Where applicable, we will discuss payment plan options and your personal circumstances with you.
Should the full course payment not be received at the time of your training being completed, AICP will withhold any testamurs (Certificates, Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas or Statements of Attainment) until all outstanding fees have been received. Where any payments are still outstanding six (6) months after the planned completion date or the date upon which you were deemed competent in in all units (whichever comes later), we will engage the services of a debt collecting agency to recover outstanding fees. In the event of AICP engaging the services of a debt collection agency, the cost of this service will be for your account.
All credit card transactions are secured using 128 Bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption.
When purchasing a course from AICP your financial details are passed through a secure server using the latest industry standard 128-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption technology. If you have any questions regarding our security policy, please click here to contact our support centre.
