Our resource fees are for materials and resources student's need to enable them to participate in the training.

Student tuition fees are indicative only and are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment. Additional fees may apply such as student service and resource fees.

Where course fees are over $1,500 we will not ask you to pay more than $1,500 at any one time.

Skills Recognition - RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) of units held already RPL fees apply 80% of unit cost per unit.

These courses are delivered as part of the publicly funded by the Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) Future Skills WA Participation Program. Eligibility criteria may apply. 

For students accessing subsidised training via the Department of Training & Workforce Development's (DTWD) Participation Program (PP) our fees and payment options are as per the DTWD Vocational Education & Training (VET) Fees and Charges Policy. Please refer to the DTWD site for more information: www.dtwd.wa.gov.au/training/fees-and-costs.

Concessions may be available to people and/or dependants (of persons) holding a Pensioner Concession Card, a Repatriation Health Benefits Card issued by the Department of Veteran Affairs or a Health Care Card; Persons and dependents of persons in receipt of AUSTUDY or ABSTUDY; Person and dependants of person in receipt of the Youth Allowance; Persons who are inmates of a custodial institution; and/or Secondary school-aged persons, not enrolled at school.

Payment plans can be agreed in certain circumstances with deposit on enrolment and payment as the units or clusters of unit progress. If payments are not made on a regular basis (as agreed in the plan), students will not be able to continue with the outstanding units until relevant payments have been made.

Capped fees - a maximum course fee of $420 - are available to secondary school aged participants not enrolled at school. In 2017, these students will be born on or after 1 July 1999 and must be at least 15 years of age. This concession expires when the student is no longer of secondary school age and only units started within the years of secondary school age can be charged at the capped rate.

Severe financial hardship may apply to some students, who may then be eligible for a 'fee waiver'. In order to apply for a fee waiver detailed evidence must be provided to clearly demonstrate the situation and that the situation is likely to remain for the duration of the course. A person is considered to be experiencing severe financial hardship if they are unable to provide for themselves and/or their dependents.

Refunds Policy
Should Worklink cancel or reschedule a course to a time unsuitable to the participant, a full refund will be given. 

Courses Funded through Government Programs 
Full refunds - Students who withdraw are entitled to a full refund of the applicable course fee, resource fee and other fees where:

  • A unit is cancelled or re-scheduled to a time unsuitable to the student.
  • A student is not given a place due to maximum number of places being reached.
  • A class is cancelled because of declining student numbers, no available trainer, or due to other circumstances caused by Worklink.

All cancellations or withdrawals from courses must be provided to Worklink in writing, once enrolment has been accepted. Requests for refunds must be lodged within two weeks of the official withdrawal date.

Participants who lodge a withdrawal form prior to, or within four weeks of commencing the unit or before 25% of delivery has been concluded (whichever is sooner) will be eligible for a full refund of their course fee and 50% of the resource fee paid.
