3. Amendments to Terms
We reserve the right to amend these Terms from time to time. Amendments will be effective immediately upon notification on this website. Your continued use of the website following such notification will represent an agreement by you to be bound by the Terms as amended.
We offer courses and content from third party providers (Course Providers). Courses form part of the Services and the terms relating to Services apply to Courses.

We reserve the right to change fees at any time in our sole discretion. All fees are inclusive of GST. Payment of the fees in full must occur prior to you accessing the associated Course. Payment may be made by way of any of the methods listed on our website.
Subject to the law, payments made are non-refundable for a change of mind. We reserve the right to cancel, interrupt, reschedule or modify Courses, in which case we may in our sole and complete discretion but subject to the law, provide a refund, discount or other consideration to you if you have purchased the rights to but not yet substantially completed participation in a Course that is cancelled or modified.
Courses do not confer any academic credit. Neither we nor the Course Providers have any obligation to have Courses recognized by any educational institution or accreditation organization.
