The very nature of conducting training courses and specifically, 4 Wheel Drive Operation courses can put accessory gear, equipment and vehicles under stressful conditions. Any damage resulting to gear, equipment or vehicles owned or operated by the client organisation which results from using such gear or equipment throughout the duration of a course (other than damage resulting from negligence by SMART-NT) is the client organisations responsibility and SMART-NT will not be liable for any repairs to or replacement of any such damaged gear, equipment or vehicles.


Course cancellations within 7 days prior to the commencement date of a scheduled course will attract a cancellation fee, amounting to 100% of the total course cost. Any failure by a nominated attendee to attend a course will attract a cancellation fee. Fees may be amended to reflect the number of staff that received training in addition to any cancellation fee, at the discretion of the training provider. The first and surnames of the staff attending each course are required to be fax'd/emailed through prior to the commencement of each course. Where incorrect spellings are supplied and require a reproduction of a course certificate, an additional surcharge of $33.00 (GST Inclusive) per certificate will be debited to the client organisation.


Should any form of social gathering restrictions (interstate or intrastate) be reintoduced in the Northern Territory through State / Federal directives which directly affects the attendance capacity of staff to attend a scheduled NT training course or requires SMART-NT to reschedule / cancel training date periods, advice of any such cancellation / rescheduling will be notified to affected clients as soon as possible and cancellation fees will not be applied to organisations where clients were not permitted to travel / attend.

Such payment will accrue at the rate of $20.00 per week, calculated on the 7th day of each week after the overdue date falls.
