Below is a summary of these policies.
Cooling off period.
If you change your mind, you will have a 20 day cooling off period from the date of your first invoice. All
pre-paid fees will be refunded. No refunds will be issued for application fees or if you cancel your training
within 14 days of your start date.
Changes to fees.
AIAC flight training is affected by a number of external influences which could cause possible fee
fluctuations. For example, external factors such as fuel and government fees and charges could affect the
cost of training. AIAC reserves the right to pass on fee increases where external factors affect the agreed
upon cost of training. The student will be notified in writing 20 working days before any adjustments in fees
will be implemented.
Payments are arranged under a legal signed agreement (Fees Agreement) and payable by equal advanced
payments, prior to the beginning of each phase of training. Refer to your Student Enrolment Contract and
Fees Agreement for enrolment and payment dates. Students cannot graduate until all fees are paid. Fees
not received on or before the due date (agreed date) will cause AIAC to “stop training”. The student will not
be permitted to incur additional costs until the fees are paid.
Protecting pre-paid fees.
Any fees for self-sponsored students that are paid prior to commencing study that are in excess of
$1500 AUD are protected in accordance with RTO regulations (schedule 6).
Fees Paid In Advance will be protected by:
An unconditional Bank Guarantee and kept in a separate, secure account
with a recognised banking institution;
- accessed only when the service is rendered on a week-by-week basis;
not used for any other purpose until the student has completed the subject
relating to the balance of the fees.
Tuition Protection Service (TPS).
Tuition Protection Service
(TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international
students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that
international students are able to either:
- complete their studies in another course or with another education provider; or
- receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees.
In the unlikely event your education provider is unable to deliver a course the learner has paid for and does
not meet their obligations to either offer you an alternative course that you accept or pay you a refund of
your unspent prepaid tuition fees (this is called a provider's 'default obligations'), the TPS will assist you in
finding an alternative course or to get a refund if a suitable alternative is not found. A refund will not be
given by AIAC if the student is terminated from the college through proven misconduct or failure to meet
