Other fees

An additional fee of $20 per certificate will apply where a student requests a replacement Statement of Attainment for one previously issued. This fee will not apply where the replacement certificate was required due to an error made on the original by QTEC or for any other reason that was the fault of QTEC.


Refund Policy
If a student withdraws from course prior to its commencement, QTEC will refund any enrolment fees paid in relation to that course. Alternatively, a student may request a transfer to the same course to be conducted at a later date.
Any other refunds are solely at the discretion of the Training Manager.

Dress requirements

Students are required wear clean, neat, modest and tidy attire with covered-in shoes. Examples of inappropriate attire include singlets, tank tops, thongs, sandals, etc. Long hair should be tied back.

Assessment
Assessment for all courses is compulsory. Units are assessed by way of both written and practical assessments. Details of assessment will be provided to you at the beginning of each unit. Practical assessments involve demonstration of skills in a real or simulated workplace.

You must successfully complete both the written and practical assessments for each unit. If you do not successfully complete an assessment, you are entitled to have a second attempt at no extra charge. If you do not successfully complete an assessment at a second attempt you will need to re-enrol and complete the unit again.

Statements of Attainment
Upon successful completion of a unit, the student will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for that unit. Statements of Attainment will be issued within 10 working days of the completion of the relevant unit.
