General Course FAQs

Is my course tax deducible?

In Australia, course fees are tax deductible if they are directly related to your current job, either maintaining or improving the skills required or being a condition of your employment. The course must be linked to your current employment and not just for future job opportunities. Expenses reimbursed by your employer are not deductible, and you can only claim for out-of-pocket costs.

For definitive guidance, please consult a tax professional or refer to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website to ensure compliance with tax regulations.

When is my booking confirmed?

Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.

Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.
