Fees applying to units attended in future years

The fees noted above apply for units completed this year. New rates may apply to units commenced in the following year and beyond, as per the Department of Training and Workforce Development’s VET Fees and Charges Policy’s gazetted unit hour fee.

Students will be invoiced prior or on commencement of each training cluster (workshop) as per their training plan.
