AIM

Free Courses
Although there is no cost for you to attend these courses, you will be charged $47.50 for non-attendance. You have been provided with a limited opportunity to upskill and if you do not show up you take this opportunity away from others who may have wished to attend but were unable to as the course was full.  Please contact us if you are unable to attend at least 48 hours before the workshop so we may make your space available to others.
