Fees

The Business School Pty Ltd operates as a ‘fee for service’ training business. This means all training programs attract fees. All fees will be paid at or prior to the commencement of training unless prior arrangements are made with TBS management.

Where less than $1,500 is collected prior to the commencement of training or where the total course fee is less than $1,500, a fee protection process is not required. These fees are paid by/charged to the student, a government agency or the student’s employer.

Where the total course fee is more than $1,500, TBS will observe the requirements of Schedule 6 of the Standards for RTOs 2015. This schedule outlines requirements for protecting fees prepaid by individual students or prospective students for services.

Fee information is available via:

  • TBS website
  • TBS program brochures
  • TBS promotional material
  • Direct email from TBS

Each of these information streams clearly identifies all fees and charges, including optional charges such as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) fees, and will be updated regularly so that both TBS and our clients will be protected.

The Business School Pty Ltd will provide the following fee information, to each student:

  1. The total amount of all fees including course fees, administration fees, materials fees and any other charges;
  2. Payment terms, including the timing and amount of fees to be paid and any non-refundable deposit/administration fee;
