Information relating to entry criteria is specified in each course information section in this document.
Participants not meeting the specific entry criteria - but who believe they have equivalent skills and knowledge - are invited to submit documentation that substantiates their expertise for assessment through the principles of Recognition of Current Competency (RCC), as specified by NZQA.
Students are required to pay fees on acceptance into a WILSS programme. In special circumstances and at the discretion of WILSS, payment by installments will be considered.
National Certificate in Sport scholarship students are required to pay a $150 non-refundable fee.
WILSS will send you an invoice detailing your tuition fees and any course-related costs.
Upon successful admission into a programmer each student will receive a Participant Handbook that will document information relating to the fees involved in that particular programmer.
NOTE: The Qualifications Authority and Ministry of Education require that all Private Training Establishments hold Fee Protection Insurance as part of registration criteria in the unlikely event of insolvency and/or egulatory closure or withdrawal of accreditation, or fees that are held in a trust account and disbursed to the organization upon the reporting of credits to NZQA. WILSS has a trust account for the purpose of fee collection and holding, upon credit reporting.
Any participant wishing to withdraw from a programme or course must inform the Sport Programmer Manager of WILSS in writing. The date for withdrawal will be recorded as the date of first notification.
Refunds will be calculated automatically upon receipt of written notification of withdrawal. Any unused course resources previously distributed to the participant should accompany all written withdrawals. Used course resources will be charged to the participant.
Refunds - less an administration fee of 10% of the course fee - will be provided to those participants who give notice, in writing to the Sport Programmers Manager of WILSS within seven days of the start of the course, and who return all course resources unused to WILSS.
Where notice is given more than seven days after course commencement - or where course resources returned are not reusable - the proportion of fees refunded will be the balance of the fees not already spent, and/or not recoverable by WILSS ie. administration costs, resource costs, etc.
If WILSS cancels a course before it runs, a full refund will be made within 14 days of the cancelation. Refunds will not be provided for used materials, equipment and books purchased by the participant, in addition to the course resources.
