Can I defer the training fees?

Taking professional standard NLP training is a serious commitment of time. And money. Considering that you get focused attention from trainers with 18+ years experience working with NLP for 40 days, it is currently $337.50 per day. Which you might recognise as being excellent value! But I know it is still money. When I started working with NLP, I was an undergraduate student, and the thought of spending money on anything that wasn’t absolutely essential was pretty pretty scary! The first time I attended a training with an ‘international trainer’ I had to save for weeks for the “huge investment” of a few hundred dollars. Which is why I’m so grateful and proud that we can do things differently.

From 1974 until 1989 it was free to go to university. From 1989 students were required to pay something towards their fees, initially in the form of HECS (later PELS and FEE-HELP). This meant that the fees would be paid to the education provider by the government, and students could repay that amount through a higher marginal rate of tax once they were earning a particular amount of income.

The envy of the world, this meant that you could study whatever you wanted, knowing that you will only have to pay for the tuition fees once you are earning more than an minimum amount.

So FEE-HELP means that you can undertake a course of study or training, have the fees paid for by the government, and only repay that amount if and when your income exceeds about $50,000pa, and even then only as a small (starting at 4%) increase to your marginal tax rate.

We have worked very hard to ensure that the Graduate Certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the best NLP training in the world. One of the benefits of this pursuit of excellence has been that the training has been recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework at “Graduate Certificate” level. Another benefit is that we have been able to make the training eligible for FEE-HELP so you can defer the upfront costs of study, just as you might for university.

Whether you are a fresh graduate, in the middle of your career, or retired, now you can afford to learn NLP with the very best!
