Terms & Conditions
1) Collection of outstanding course fees
a. SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) provides grants/funding on condition that trainees complete at least 75% of the course and pass the assessment. Equinet Academy will collect net course fees with the understanding that self-sponsored trainee/organisation enrolling the trainee in the course will make every effort (including ensuring that training grant is submitted timely and trainee passing any compulsory assessments during the course) to ensure the claim is successful. In the event that trainee fails to pass the assessment or for any reason is unable to claim the grant/funding from SSG, Equinet reserves the right to collect the outstanding course fees (eligible funding amount by SSG) from self-sponsored trainee or the organisation enrolling the trainee in the course.
b. The amount payable quoted on the registration form and invoice assumes that the information provided by registrant is accurate. In the event that the information submitted to Equinet Academy is found to be inaccurate, the actual amount payable may be higher than the amount quoted. In such a scenario, Equinet Academy reserves the right to collect the balance payment from the self-sponsored trainee/organisation enrolling the trainee.
c. If you are registering as a company sponsored trainee, you must be employed by the organisation sponsoring your training to qualify for the relevant training grant. For clarity:
(i) A sole-proprietorship may be considered the employer of the sole-proprietor.
(ii) A partnership may be considered the employer of a partner within that partnership
(iii) An organisation who engages an intern, where the internship is not part of academic requirements in school, may be considered the employer of the intern.
(iv) In all other situations, a trainee is considered an employee of a particular employer only if there is an employment contract between the trainee and the employer, and where the employer is liable to pay remuneration to the trainee under the employment contract.
d. If trainee (self-sponsored) submits a claim to use their SkillsFuture credits but does not attend the course, Equinet will refund the credits to SkillsFuture and bill the trainee for the claim amount. However, any deposit collected will be forfeited by trainee.
2) Confirmation of seats
Upon registration, trainees must complete payment of nett fees in order to confirm their seats. Equinet reserves the right to release the trainee’s reservation if trainee fails to pay the nett course fees at least 7 days before the start of their course.
3) Postponement and cancellations
For cancellation or rescheduling of your registered course, kindly inform us at least 14 working days before the course start date in order to get a refund on the course fees, less credit card/PayPal transaction fees. Kindly note that for cancellations/rescheduling received less than 14 working days before the course start date, a penalty of 20% of the course fee will be charged. Please note that for cancellations/rescheduling received less than 7 working days before the course start date, 50% of the course fees will be charged. In the case of cancellations/rescheduling received 1 working day before the course start date or less, full fees will be imposed.
