Course entry requirements
There are entry requirements for the Advanced Certificate of Trauma Counselling course (see the entry requirements document).
Online Delivery
Trauma Institute provides online delivery with all of their educational courses. Students will be expected to complete their course requirements via distance online learning education. Students will be responsible for having access to the internet for some or all of their course work for all courses and subjects. This course has a specific academic timetable, formal and informal assessments. Students are responsible for meeting all of these requirements.
Cancellation and refund policy
Your signed enrolment form acts as confirmation that you accept and commit to paying the fees.
Cancellation Fees
7 days or greater notice $200 cancellation fee per course.
Less than 7 days notice $400 cancellation fee per course.
Course fees
All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing at least 7 days prior to the start of selected term to Trauma Institute. The student agrees to pay Trauma Institute in full for the course prior to the cut-off date of enrolment to the selected term. Student requests for refunds must be received before commencement of the course. Once an enrolment is processed and course resources provided it is deemed the student to have received the course.
Students are able to defer to the same course for up to 6 months if Trauma Institute has received a request in writing up to 7 days prior to the commencement of a course. If the deferment request is received in less than 7 days prior to a course starting a $50.00 transfer fee will apply for each course.
Assessment Items
Any assessment materials that need to be re-submitted will incur a $30.00 resubmission fee. All formal assessments must be completed in the allocated period. If any formal assessments are not completed in the allocated time, students will be deemed Not Yet Competent (NYC). They will be required to pay a re-enrolment fee of $100.00 per submission, but only if the student has applied for and been granted an extension in writing.
Appeals Procedure
You may request a Not Yet Competent (NYC) assessment result to be reviewed for up to five working days from receipt of the result. Requests for a review of an assessment item must be made in writing.
The Advanced Certificate of Trauma Counselling course has a maximum* of 6 months to complete. This time period includes online discussion questions, activities and portfolios. Students may gain extensions on the academic timetable issued up to a maximum of 5 weeks, if they apply in writing prior to the end of the course or subject academic timetable completion date and it is within the full time frame above. No extension can be given over the maximum time allocated.
* Maximum time is at the discretion of Trauma Institute Education Review Panel. Students must make every endeavour to complete their Trauma Institute course as per their allocated finish dates.
Trauma Institute reserves the right to change course dates, or to cancel courses if necessary. In the event a course being cancelled every effort will be made to avoid inconvenience by transferring attendees to other scheduled courses or refund. On enrolment students are confirming they have read the course and student information and are therefore aware of the requirements and structure of the course.
