Reschedules >6 Day’s Notice
Once within six (6) working days of the scheduled course commencement date, or in the case of an individual assessment, the assessment date, should a participant or group wish to reschedule a full training course or individual assessment item, this will be treated as a Non-attendance and a fee equal to the full course or assessment fee will apply. This is due to Work place Health and Safety requirements regarding the scheduling of High Risk Licence assessments.
Reschedules Less Than 3 Working Days Notice

This is due to Workplace Health and Safety requirements regarding the scheduling of High Risk Licence assessments, and we cannot resell this place in the course.
Reschedules/Cancellations on the Day
For whatever reason forfeits the right to a free resit of the assessment should they not pass first time. If you have booked in to a class, we cannot rebook that seat at the last minute.
There are no refunds offered on any cancellation of any rescheduled course, at any period of time.
Terms and Conditions
If a participant is late for the course, they will have to catch up in their own time, either at home or during a break in the class. If participant/s didn’t study, and failed their test, they may choose to resit the assessment. Please see Resitting Assessment section.
If a participant or group does not attend the scheduled day of the course they will not be entitled to a refund. Purchase orders/invoices must still be paid in full in the event that a participant or group did not show up and decided to cancel the course. If a participant or group would like to reschedule, they will be asked to present a medical certificate or some other proof of exceptional circumstances. Otherwise, a fee of $150 (GST FREE) for their rescheduled assessment will be incurred, and full course fee will apply to reschedule any training, as we are unable to re-sell that place in the course. Rescheduling based on non-attendance is at the discretion of FMS, and subject to course availability.
Substitute delegates are accepted without charge up to one (1) working day prior to the scheduled course date. No substitute delegates will be accepted once the course has commenced.

One free resit must be scheduled within 2 months of the initial assessment. All resit requests must be made in writing and sent via email to email@example.com, and initiated by the student. No assessment resit requests will be handled over the phone. FMS will also do its best to accommodate the student for the next available time slot, but this will be subject to course availability.
However, should a student not pass their assessment on the 2nd time, charges will apply for a reassessment at the reassessment rate of $150.00 (GST FREE). Assessment resits due to failure will be subject to availability, and rescheduled to a time available, and at the discretion of FMS.
If the trainer believes that the student may need to study more or log more hours to become a competent operator, then that student will be welcomed back for more training, at no extra charge.
Expired Assessment Summary Form
Individuals who have failed to lodge their Assessment Summary Form (AS1) within the nominated timeframe (60 days) will be required to retake all of their assessment items under Workplace Health and Safety requirements. No additional training will be provided and a reassessment fee of $150.00 (GST FREE) per assessment (Knowledge & Calculations or Performance) will be charged.
