3. General terms
3.1 Payment: Course prices are published on our website and will be confirmed at the time of booking. Quoted prices include GST (unless otherwise expressly indicated). You must pay for a Course at the time of booking and/or by the due date specified on the relevant invoice.
Discounts on Course fees or Credits must be claimed at the time of booking, prior to payment being made. Please note that multiple discounts cannot be applied to the same transaction.
3.2 Course Pre-requisites: It is important that Attendees satisfy any specified pre-requisites prior to commencing a Course, as time is not allocated to covering assumed knowledge during the Course.
3.3 Online on-demand training: Purchase of online on-demand training allows one individual Attendee access to a Course. Some Courses may only be made available for a limited time period after you enrol. If a time limit applies, it will be specified in the Course description and on our website. You are responsible for ensuring that Attendees complete the content within the allocated time period.
3.4 Rights to use the Materials: Materials can only be used for an Attendee’s personal study and professional development purposes. You must not (and ensure that Attendees do not) copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, or publicly display any part of any content from the Courses (including but not limited to the Materials) without our prior written consent. You and any Attendees are not permitted to commercially exploit the Materials, incorporate the Materials into your own training, or provide a copy of the Materials to anyone else. You must ensure that Attendees are made aware of, and agree to be bound by, these Terms, including any restrictions on the use of the Materials.
3.5 Protecting your password: You must take reasonable precautions to ensure that your MYOB username(s) and/or password(s) are not misused and remain secure and confidential. If you think anyone else might know your password, you should reset the password from within our platform, or contact us as soon as possible to arrange a new password. You must ensure that Attendees are aware of, and comply with, the obligations set out in this section 3.5.
Sharing of usernames and passwords is strictly prohibited. We reserve the right to immediately terminate access to online training if we reasonably believe that more than one user or Attendee is accessing the training using the same login details.
3.6 Professional conduct: We encourage Attendees to prepare for and actively participate in Courses. However, we reserve the right to exclude any Attendee from any Course if their conduct is verbally or physically abusive, threatening, or amounts to bullying or harassment of any other Attendee or of any MYOB employee, contractor or agent. The Attendee engaging in such behaviour will be given one warning and if the behaviour continues, they will be excluded.
4. Booking cancellations and transfers
4.1 Cancellation by you:
(a) If you submit a booking cancellation request to us in writing at least 24 hours before a Course commences, you may elect to receive either:
(i) a refund; or
(ii) a Credit,
for the full amount you paid to MYOB for the Course. The refund or Credit will be processed by MYOB promptly, and in any event, within 30 days after your booking cancellation request is received.
A Credit will be valid for a period of 12 months from date of issue, after which it will expire.
A Credit can be applied towards the cost of purchasing other Courses from MYOB.
(b) Subject to section 4.4 and sections 5.3—5.4, no refund or Credit is available if we receive a booking cancellation request less than 24 hours before the Course commences or in the event of non-attendance.
4.2 Requests for transfer between Courses

(c) Subject to section 4.4 and sections 5.3—5.4, if the price of the alternative Course is less than the amount you paid to MYOB for the original Course, you will not be entitled to a refund but will receive a Credit for the difference. This Credit will be valid for a period of 12 months from date of issue, after which it will expire. The Credit can be applied towards the cost of purchasing other Courses from MYOB.
(d) You will not be required to pay an administration fee to change the booking.
4.3 Requests for transfer to another Attendee for the same Course. You are permitted to transfer a booking from one Attendee to another Attendee; provided that you submit the request to us in writing at least 24 hours before the Course commences.
You will need to ensure that the new Attendee has satisfied any relevant Course pre-requisites.
4.4 MYOB discretion to offer transfers, Credits or refunds in other circumstances. We know that things don’t always go to plan, and unexpected things happen. In addition to any right you have to transfer bookings, or receive a Credit or a refund under sections 4.1—4.3 or sections 5.3—5.4, we may elect to issue you with a transfer, Credit or refund in other circumstances (for example, if an Attendee has a valid medical certificate to show they were ill, or if they were scheduled to attend in-person training and their travel was cancelled due to circumstances beyond their reasonable control).
4.5 To cancel a booking or to request a transfer, Credit or refund for a Course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and outline the reason(s) for your request.
4.6 Course cancellation by MYOB
