Administrative Fees & Charges

RPL Application Fee
This is a non-refundable fee charged for pre-assessment provided to determine whether or not you ready to apply for RPL.$99
Cancellation Fee
You have a 10-day cooling-off period to change you mind. The cooling-off period starts from the date of enrolment which is the date the confirmation of enrolment email is sent to you. If you change your mind within the first 10 calendar days, you will be entitled to a refund or to terminate your payment plan. A cancellation fee will be charged.

If you change your mind after the 11th calendar day, a no-refund policy applies which means:
• if you paid upfront, we cannot issue you with a refund for any part of the payment
• if you signed up for a payment plan, the payment plan will not be cancelled and direct debit payments will continue to be taken
• if you paid the $150 deposit and you change your mind before the confirmation of enrolment email is sent to you, the deposit is non-refundable
Additional Course Resources
You will be given the learning and assessment resources required to successfully complete your course through NCA's online learning portal. We can post the reading resources to you if you prefer to use printed books but you will still need to complete the assessment tasks online.
Additional course resources will cost about $300 - $450 extra, depending on your course. The charge includes postage and handling and can be added to a payment plan at the point of enrolment. It cannot be added after enrolment.

Course Extension Fee
Your course has a set duration period that starts from the date of enrolment, which is the dates we send you the confirmation of enrolment email. You are required to complete the course within this time period. If you cannot complete it because of other commitments, you can apply for an extension for up to 12 months. If the extension is granted, a course extension fee will be charged.$295
Upgrade Fee
This fee is charged if we issue you with a certificate or a Statement of Attainment as a direct upgrade to an equivalent qualification. This only applies to an upgrade where the new qualification is deemed equivalent and mapping of competencies is not required. If mapping is required, it will fall under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Police Clearance Check
Some organisations may require a police clearance check for students on work placement. You'll need to take care of this before placement can be approved. Clearance checks can cost between $35 - $45.

Please keep your certificate in a safe place. But if you lose it and you need a new one printed, we'll have to charge this replacement fee.$55 (inc. GST)
