The ACPS may need to impose a variable surcharge on all Credit Card transactions to cover transaction fees. If nominated, the charges will be, a 0% surcharge added to the full amount of any function or course where the attendee uses Mastercard or Visa and a 4% surcharge added to the full amount of any function or course where the attendee uses the American Express card or Diners Card. The ACPS reserves the right to change these additional costs in the case of any bank or other transaction fees being increased. All course and function costs are GST inclusive.
In the event of a Purchase Order No. being used, it is required that all payments are made by the time the event or course is to commence. If monies have not been received by this time, the ACPS reserves the right to deny attendance to the participant involved. Additionally, the ACPS will run events where a Purchase Order will not be acceptable and in this case cheques or credit cards will need to be used. The ACPS will also run events where only credit card payments will be allowed.
A maximum of three people from a site/operation/office (as per corporate membership rules) can register for the same course at any one time. Extras can be placed on a waiting list with the Course Director and if there are available positions at the end of the registration period they may then be considered by the Course Director.
The ACPS reserves the right to cancel any function or course as deemed necessary and in the event full refund will be made to the Company or attendee.
If a course or event attendee is not able to attend and has not given any prior notice of withdrawal from said course or event the ACPS reserves the right to retain any payment that has been made. If the course attendee or Company chooses to send someone else in place of the nominated person, or asks that they attend a future course (courses only),
the payment will then be applied to that attendee or the nominated course.
NOTE: Course attendees must attend a future course in the same calendar year of the original course registration. If an attendee fails to fulfil their attendance at a future course, the ACPS reserves the right to retain monies paid for the course registration.
For any person or company to obtain the members rates for themselves or their employees at any function, course or purchase, the actual person must be named as a member.
