Terms & Conditions
The Spending Planners Institute was created to train and support people in building a business which provides a service to end customers. The training the Institute delivers 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 whenever a new trainee chooses to start and is self paced. Lessons are delivered online. There are 8 Units of study and 23 lessons. Regular Q & A support sessions are available to trainees as well as on an ‘as requested’ basis.
An Invoice is issued prior to commencement of training and payment is required prior to commencement. Through negotiation, in some cases, payment of the full invoice amount may be made via several instalments.
The following Refund Policy applies to all trainees. Notice in writing of withdrawal from the business training is required.
Where notice to cease training is given within two (2) days (48 hours) of making initial payment – full refund.
After a Trainee completes Unit 1 and has produced their own basic Spending Plan they may discontinue training and receive a 50% refund if they are not convinced Spending Planning suits their future plans. Otherwise a commitment to completing the training is made. No refund is given once this commitment has been made.
Note. By progressing to Unit 2 a trainee indicates their commitment to continue training.
Delivery of Service
The Spending Planners Institute provides online training resources and both group tutorials and one-on-one support as requested (often available at short notice).
Completion of each lesson triggers the delivery of the next.
On completion of the training, each trainee is required to enlist the assistance of an acquaintance or volunteer to complete a client experience. The plan created is presented for appraisal and assessment.
Knowledge of the clients steps, being business ready, competence in the use of the Spending Planner software and having a clear sales and marketing direction are assessed by an interview process. As this is competency based training a trainee a trainee is granted Certification as soon as they have demonstrated competency.
A Certificate is issued and a period of twelve (12) months free registration begins. Support is available for as long as a Certified Spending Planner remains continually registered under the Institute. After the initial 12 months, registration is maintained via a $20 monthly registration fee.
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 their training.
