(Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) utilising the VET Student Loans under Section 126 with varying tuition fees Section 133, in the current student intake all changes were made prior to passing the published census date for the upcoming phase, which complies with rule 1bi.
All students had the opportunity to withdraw without penalty before census date for their current phase completing with rule 1bii and 1biii under the government COVID-19 change of circumstances rule.
The Redcliffe Aero Club inline with rule 126 varying tuition fees section 2 has not made any changes to our course fee structure but have changed the order of phases that the course structure will follow based on the COVID-19 restrictions.
Under rule 127 publishing variation of tuition fees, all students have been provided with amended training plans and statement of covered fees clearly outlining all course durations, order of study changes.
