Issued:             09.01.2006

Reviewed:       27.03.2018

Purpose:

HITsa Training and Employment (HITsa) is required to document how fees will be paid and the ramifications if they are not paid by the due date.  HITsa has an obligation to ensure all fees paid in advance are protected so that if a course is cancelled or the student withdraws the fees paid can be refunded subject to our refund policy and procedure.

Areas affected:

HITsa Training and Employment staff and sites.

General:

HITsa will charge a fee for all training conducted.  This fee may be paid by either the student, employer or a third party.  Fees must be paid in full on the first day of attendance unless a qualification course, and in this instance a fee payment plan must have been agreed upon, documented and signed off by both parties.

A copy of this policy is available on HITsa website and is given to all enrolling students to ensure they have a clear understanding of all charges and the process.

Payment of course fees by instalments may be approved if you are undertaking training where the total fees $500 or more.  For you to be considered for this payment method you must complete the appropriate form, Fee – payment by instalments request and this must be approved by a HITsa representative prior to commencement of training and receipt of any training materials associated with the course.

If approved, you will be allowed to pay your fees over the duration of the course.  You will be required to calculate your repayment amounts and due dates to ensure all course fees are paid in full by the last day of training.  Students must have a minimum deposit of 25% of the value of the total course fees and this must be paid upon commencement.

All fees must be paid prior to the completion of classes otherwise a parchment will not be issued until full payment has occurred.
The payment of fees by instalment attracts NO interest or other charges unless the fees are unpaid and legal action is undertaken for debt recovery.

No student will be eligible for payment of fees by instalment without approval from the Executive Officer or Financial Controller.
Any student who has an outstanding debt from a previous enrolment shall NOT be approved for payment of fees by instalment.

No student shall be permitted to enter class if any monies are overdue.
