REFUNDS, SUBSTITUTIONS & TRANSFERS

Training session viability of each advertised session is assessed one week prior to the scheduled date of delivery, when a decision is made regarding continuation or cancellation. When a training session is cancelled due to insufficient numbers or circumstances outside of the control of ACSA, a full refund will be paid, directly to the customer who has made the initial purchase.

A full refund is also available if an attendee withdraws from a training session, 7 or more days prior to the session being delivered, on the condition, that the customer has contacted training@acsa.asn.au, 7 or more days prior, to inform regarding their intention to withdraw from the purchased training session. No refunds or transfers will be considered without notification prior to the commencement of a training session.

An organisation may choose to substitute an attendee of a previously paid session, by emailing training@acsa.asn.au, 24 hours prior to the commencement of the training session. Late notifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Full details of the substituted attendee must be provided.
