Frequently asked questions

View the full refund and cancellation policy here.

What if I change my mind?

7 days to cool off:

  • If you signed up, and have not accessed the course content, you have 7-day cooling off period to apply for a full refund.

Technical issues:

Do I have the necessary equipment?

  • Make sure that you have the equipment as well as internet connection and data that are sufficient for viewing online video (e.g. a YouTube video).  If you have a technical problem, we’ll try to help you. If we were unable to help you, and if the problem was caused by us, we’ll understand that you are dissatisfied and that you will want a refund.

Dissatisfied and want a refund:

What if I’m dissatisfied with my purchase?

  • If you are not happy with the course, of if we were unable to provide the course due to technical problems (described above), or other failure on our part, please let us know within 30 days of registering. However, if you have already viewed most of the course content, or if you have shared your access with somebody else, then there’s a very good chance that the refund request will not be accepted.

How long does a refund take?

How long does it take to get a refund?

  • If you overpaid us for some reason, it will take up to two weeks to process the refund.
  • All other refund requests depend on the circumstance; such as whether you have already accessed most of the course, or if you have received other learning material or training kits, or if you are in the process of returning goods, etc. We need to process all of that before you receive a refund.

Sharing access info with other people:

May I share my access info with somebody else?

  • That is not permitted. Everybody pays for their own access. If we find unauthorised students on a course, a student can expect to have their access cancelled immediately without refund.
  • If you do this, it could really interrupt a course. If other students are enrolled, we might need to cancel everybody’s access codes and issue new ones.


Will I receive a certificate?

  • This depends on the course you are enrolling for.  Make sure you have read this information in the outline of the course you are interested in.
  • Some courses prepare you for external certifications, such as Pastel or the ICB or the Department of Education.
  • Some courses are modules or subjects that form part of a qualification. In this case, you need to finish a full qualification in order to receive a certificate.
  • Some courses require an exam. Some exams may be taken online. Others must be completed at a testing centre.
  • Other courses may simply be completed online.
