Many fine friendships have begun at these courses.

Course numbers for Face to Face courses are kept low and course room size maximised to minimise covid risk. We have not had any students acquire covid at these courses.

Cancellations after enrollment are subject to a non-refundable $550 fee plus the cost of any books that an enrollee choses to keep or has used. Cancellations within a month of a course make it difficult to find replacement professionals when the other enquiring professionals have already been told that a course is full, precluding them from enrolling. Hence cancellations within 4 weeks of a course are subject to full fee cancellation.

Attendance must be made within 3 years of enrolment unless there are extenuating circumstances which will considered by the College team.
