Where possible, alternative course dates will be mutually agreed. 50% of the total course fee will be charged in the case of cancellation within 14 days of delivery. 100% of the total course fee will be charged in the case of cancellation within 5 working days of delivery. For group bookings payment is required for the number of students booked for as at five working days prior to course commencement. All notices of withdrawal should be in writing, dated and a detailed reason for withdrawal provided.

Disclaimer

Peak Safety Training Ltd. reserves the right to cancel, postpone or change the delivery of any of its courses by notifying you as soon as possible. In the case we are required to cancel, alternative dates will be provided to participants to accommodate them on other courses. If this is unachievable, Peak Safety Training will refund fees paid in full. Unfortunately, we are unable to supply remuneration for damages, costs or expenses resulting from changes to the course.

Assessment

Before any NZQA assessment Peak Safety Training will talk with you about the time, location, and expected process. The unit standards you are pursuing will be explained and you will be given information about which qualifications those unit standards may contribute to.

You will be provided with clear feedback once your assessment has been assessed. If you do not understand how your assessor has reached the assessment decision and you are unhappy with the result you are encouraged to talk with Peak Safety Training. At any point before, during or after your assessment you are welcome to contact info@peaksafety.co.nz for guidance or support.

All work you submit must be your own. If you are found to have copied or plagiarised another person’s work, you will get an automatic Not Competent/ Not Achieved assessment grade, with the possibility of being banned from studying with Peak Safety in the future. If you are suspected of cheating in this manner, you may be required to attend a full face to face presentation of knowledge and skills in front of the directors.
