ICETS will review its refund policy in cases of special circumstances.
Special circumstances include:
Medical circumstances: where a student’s medical condition has changed to such an extent that he or she is unable attend, or
Family/Personal circumstances: death or severe medical problems within a family, or unforeseen family financial difficulties, so that it is unreasonable to expect a student to attend, or
Evidence sufficient for a claim of special circumstances shall include (but is not limited to) the following:
In respect to medical circumstances, the provision of a medical certificate from a medical practitioner
In respect to family/personal circumstances, a statutory declaration witnessed by a Justice of the Peace, and where family medical problems are cited, a copy of a medical certificate from a medical practitioner
ICETS will be satisfied that a student’s circumstances are beyond the student’s control if a situation occurs that a reasonable person would consider is not due to the person’s action or inaction, either direct or indirect, and for which the student is not responsible. The situation must be unusual, uncommon or abnormal.
Each review will be examined and determined on its merits by considering a student’s claim together with independent supporting documentation substantiating the claim.
Course Extension Applications
ICETS policy is all course assessments must be submitted within 12 months of the commencement of a course. Students can apply for one extension to complete outstanding assessments. Student’s seeking an extension must apply for an extension by emailing email@example.com and requesting an extension form. The completed form must be submitted back to ICETS within 30 days before the course completion date. The application will be assessed on it’s merits against criteria which will include the percentage of assessments already submitted and the number of times the student has accessed the ICETS training website.
