To be eligible for a concession fee, you must provide the College with evidence of your eligible welfare benefit or allowance.
The evidence can be in the form of a current Department of Human Services (Centrelink) Income Statement or a copy of a current Pensioner Concession Card that has been witnessed by a JP or at the Post Office.
It must show that you are eligible for the benefit at the date you will commence training. You cannot commence training until this has been provided.
You are usually only eligible to apply for the concession at the time of the enrolment, so it is important that you let us know then.
Once you enrol - you can upload the evidence of concession eligibility to our student study hub - "Webclass". Your concessional enrolment cannot be approved until this has been done.
Fee exemptions do not generally apply in ACT.
However where a trainee leaves one employer and recommences within 12 months with another employer, in the same qualification and with the same RTO, or the trainee is required to go to a different RTO as a result of a change of RTO process, the fee is also waived on the basis that a first fee has been charged and paid.
