Australian Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy
Course Terms and Conditions – as at July 2017
If you do not agree with any of these terms and conditions, please do NOT register or otherwise attend the courses of AICH. Your attendance shall be deemed to be your understanding of, and agreement to each of the terms and conditions set forth below.
All prices displayed in this website are in Australian Dollars (AUD)
1. COURSE ATTENDANCE
Confirmation of Place
Your place within the courses will not be confirmed until AICH has received a fully completed Client Information Form and the required deposit. If paying by payment plan (payment plans available upon application only), the payment plan must be in place and the required non-refundable deposit of $3,999 AUD paid in full. Please note that online competencies will not be accessible until the required course fees and non-refundable deposit is paid in full. The Client Information Form is not transferable, and a new booking request will be required for any new participants.
You may cancel your enrolment:
- 4 weeks prior to the first day of the course with a $100 AUD administration charge.
- Less than 4 weeks and more than 2 weeks prior to the first day of the course, you will be charged fifty percent (50%) of the current price of the course.
- Less than 2 weeks prior to the first day of the course, you will not be entitled to any refund.
- Deposits for courses are non-refundable.
Transfer / Split Courses
Provided we are advised at the time of booking, AICH does not charge a fee for participants attending more than one scheduled course to complete all required modules. It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure courses are completed within the statutory timeframes.
Competency is determined at the discretion of the faculty and includes completion of assessments and personal suitability to practice. Attendance of the course and completion of assignments does NOT guarantee certification. It is the participant’s responsibility to attend all class time and complete all course work, and if having difficulties, to alert the trainer or assessor. The inability to satisfactorily complete assessments is not grounds for a refund.
AICH may terminate participation in the course for misconduct or unpaid course fees at any time, at its sole discretion. In the event of misconduct, AICH will NOT refund course fees.
AICH reserves the right to cancel or postpone courses due to unforeseen circumstances (including low enrolments). We will make every effort to ensure that participants for cancelled courses are placed on the next available course or, if this is impractical, will be given a full refund.
If the class has started and you fail to attend the course on which you are enrolled without prior notice to us, you will be charged for the full price of the course and you will not be eligible to transfer to another course.
2. COURSE CONTENT & QUALITY
Copyright in all materials is owned by AICH, unless otherwise agreed.
AICH has no liability for any errors or omissions in the materials, whether provided by AICH or by third parties.

You are solely responsible for results achieved in using any materials or skills learnt in any of our courses.
3. OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY
AICH aims to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all its participants and others who enter its work premises and course venues. Similarly, participants must also be aware of their duty to take responsible care of the health and safety of others, and respect the rights of other participants and trainers.
Participants are required to comply with the rules of conduct on the training premises and follow any reasonable instructions of the trainer.
Failure to do so may result in the participant’s termination from a course.
Our obligations hereunder are conditional on your performance of your responsibilities under these terms and conditions.
We are not liable for any third-party claims against you for losses or damages as a result of the courses.
You agree not to use our trademarks, trade names, or other designations in any promotion or publication without our prior written consent. Any attempt to do so may result in damages.

Neither the Company nor the participant is responsible for failure to fulfill any obligations due to causes beyond either party’s control.
Neither the Company nor the participant will bring any legal action (under this Agreement) more than 12 months after the cause of action arose.
Any terms of this Agreement, which by their nature extend beyond its termination, remain in full effect until fulfilled and apply to respective successors and assignees.
This Agreement is made under, and shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws in the Australian State or Territory in which the course, education or materials was attended.
