Refund Policy

The Spending Planners Institute was created to train and support people in building a business which provides a service to end customers. The training we deliver has been developed over many years and contains information that can be used to generate income for those people who choose to undergo the training.

Training commences at designated times throughout the year.  Payment can be made up front or on a payment plan.

The following Refund Policy applies to all trainees.  Notice in writing of withdrawal from the business training is required.

Notice given within two (2) days (48 hours) of initial payment – full refund

Notice given between two (2) days of initial payment and one week prior to the commencement of the Phase 2 – face-to-face training – Client will be given a refund less $500 (including GST)

Notice given less than one week prior to the Phase 2 – face-to-face training component – 50% of full price will be refunded, or, if payment has not been made, then Client must complete payments up to 50% of quoted Certification Training fee.  NOTE – if a Client signs up for Certification Training less then two (2) weeks prior to face-to-face training, then the 50% payment / 50% refund still applies.

Notice given  at any stage after the face-to-face training component – NO REFUND applies;  full payment is due.

Delivery of Service

The Spending Planners Institute conducts various training events and conference events. People who choose to attend these events sign up weeks or even months prior to the face-to-face event taking place.

The business training comprises three parts – Phase 1 – pre-event training – online and via email (setting up a business and preparation for clients); Phase 2 – face-to-face training (systems and processes, business spending plan projections, sales & marketing); and Phase 3 – post-event training – combination of webinars, online & email (7 week Kickstart designed to kickstart your business).

Some trainees choose to pay 100% of the fee at the time of signing up and others choose to adopt a payment plan which may start weeks or months before the face-to-face event and may conclude many months after the event.

Regardless of the chosen payment plan, all trainees are treated the same.

On completion of the Phase 2 – face-to-face training component, each trainee is then issued with current membership of the Spending Planners Institute for twelve (12) months and support is available for as long as they are members of the Institute.

Guarantee

There is no guarantee of income since every trainee has different goals, levels of commitment, available time and personal skills, however there is no reason why any trainee could not generate significantly more income than the cost of the training.
