.: Course Waiting List


We operate a Course Waiting List. When a course is fully booked, you may request to have your name put down on the Course Waiting List. In the event of cancellation by another student, the space will then be offered to students on the waiting list in strict numerical order.

The exception to this will be if the class is a sell out and we can sell the canceled space to someone on the waiting list, then the fee will be refunded.

.: Course Fees/Packages


As a general rule, our course fees are for the tuition only and do not include the use of materials and equipment unless otherwise stated.


Where a student is required to bring their own supplies, an equipment and materials list will be available prior, to the beginning of each course. This enables each student to organize their own equipment for use in the classroom and therefore removes the need to borrow from fellow students or the teacher. We will endeavour to send this to students with a confirmed booking a minimum of two weeks prior to the commencement of the course. If you do not receive this it is your responsibility to make contact with us to request it.


KPME Ltd cannot and will not be held responsible for loss of tools and equipment whilst on our premises. As many students will have the same products in class, you are advised to clearly mark your tools and equipment in some way to make them easily identified, perhaps with your initials. A permanent marker pen or something similar seems to work well. Please note that your tools and equipment are your responsibility and KPME Ltd cannot and will not be held responsible for any loss or damage of tools and equipment whilst on our premises.

.: Student Discounts


When attending one of our courses we offer the student a 10% discount off of product purchased for the purpose of the course. This is not valid for publications and any stock that is already discounted, in which case the price you see is the price you pay. The discount is only available to the student whilst attending the course and does not extend past the last day of the course.



.: Time Keeping


Students are asked to observe good time keeping. Please ensure you know what time your class starts and make suitable arrangements to arrive on time. Classes will start on time and any time missed by a student will be lost. Should the tutor have time during the class to catch the student up without impairing on other students learning time, then this will be done. In the case where a tutor cannot bring the student up to speed the student will need to catch up in their own time.
