As required under the NVR regulations which govern registered training organisations, Synergy Central may only take fees in advance as follows for courses where the total course cost is in excess of $1500:
The RTO may accept payment of no more than $1500 from each individual student prior to or by the commencement of a course.
Commencement is deemed to have occurred when a learner has enrolled and either been supplied with learning and assessment materials or provided with login details for Vasto.
Following course commencement, the RTO may require payment of additional fees in advance from the student but only such that at any given time, the total amount required to be paid which is attributable to costs yet to be incurred on behalf of the student for tuition or other services yet to be delivered to the student does not exceed $1,500
This means, that at specific points after commencement, additional proportional fees will be due at set points for courses where fees are in excess of $1500
This restriction does not apply to companies and is only for individual learners who are self-enrolling and self-funding.
For information regarding the general terms and conditions include enrollment, appeals, etc, visit our website: www.synergycentral.com.au
Where relevant Synergy Central may vary payment arrangements to accommodate individual needs and circumstances and may utilise any of the following payment regimes as negotiated with clients:
• Structured payments over a period of time (i.e. 12 monthly payments over one year)
• proportional payments (i.e. for a $3000 course; $1000 at commencement and for payments of $500 over 12 months)
• Negotiated terms of payment over a period of time (in line with NVR guidelines and restrictions)
Effective from 1 March 2018 Synergy’s fees will be by quotation
