Terms and Conditions

All courses involve attendance at various times and on various dates for varying durations depending on the course option chosen.


It is up to the students to attend every tutorial.

Where a student has missed a class, it is the student’s responsibility to catch up on the topics & lessons missed.

Student’s should arrange / pre-arranged with their classmates to share notes via a messaging forum or through our online learning platform.

Where a student’s attendance is affected by a medical reason or serious personal situation, an opportunity to repeat the course in full, selected portions of the course, or examinations may be offered at no extra fee depending on current circumstances. Where this is not deemed appropriate, fees may apply.

Where a student does not achieve 80% attendance, they will unfortunately not be eligible to partake in final examinations.

The EPTA has set rules and regulations regarding professional attendance, time-keeping, personal appearance, conduct, etc. You agree to abide by such conditions, our Code of Ethics and National Standards and Guidelines.

All applicants for courses have a responsibility to ensure that they are not suffering from any illness or injury which may prevent their complete participation on the course. Applicants must also ensure that they do not suffer from any communicable disease and furthermore, should they contract such a disease during the term where they are participating on the course, that they will not attend for the duration of the period during which they could infect fellow students.

The eligibility requirements for courses vary. Please check that you meet the eligibility requirements outlined for each course before enrolling.

It is important for potential students to understand that places on all courses are available on a first come first served basis. If you feel quite certain that this is the course for you, we would advise that you pay a deposit as soon as possible to avoid potential disappointment.

Deposits are non-refundable in all circumstances and once a course commences, the student becomes liable for the full course fees & refunds will not be considered.


Students who fail to complete a course for any reason will receive no refund of course fees paid and will still be liable for the full course fee.


In the case of cancellation by an applicant, prior to course commencement, the balance of course fees may only be refunded as outlined below. Notice of an applicant’s non-participation must be given in writing. Where notice of non-participation is received, fees will be refunded on the following scale:

  • 4 weeks before the course start date – 70% refund.

  • 3 weeks before the course start date – 50% refund.

  • 2 weeks before the course start date – 30% refund.

  • Less than 2 weeks before the course start date – 0% refund.

If an applicant is genuinely ill or there are compassionate grounds as to why they are unable to commence a course where fees have already been paid, they may be able to defer their participation to a later date, this will be done on a case by case basis. • Non-payment of fees due by instalment will result in being ineligible to sit examinations and graduate.


Course start dates may be subject to change. If a course start date changes you will be offered the opportunity to transfer your enrolment to the new date or to receive a full refund of any fees paid.


Should a course be cancelled or postponed the EPTA will not be held responsible for any additional costs incurred by the student, including, but not limited to, transport or accommodation. Once a course commences, although extremely unlikely, class dates and times may be subject to change.
