Cancellations & Refunds

    • Written notification to [email protected] of non-attendance and cancellations received 10 working days or more before the course – an admin fee of $20 and a 5% bank processing fee applies. In the case of overseas trainees, the bank processing & admin fee is variable, and is dependent on overseas bank charges and the time involved in processing.
    • Written notification to [email protected] of non-attendance and cancellations received within 10 working days before the course: non-refundable, full course fees apply. 
    • If a trainee cannot attend on their original course date, we will endeavour to re-schedule them into another class but we cannot guarantee a space on any preferred date. Trainees will have one rescheduling/postponing opportunity, after which trainees will be required to pay and book the course again.
    • The rescheduled/postponed date must fall within 3 months of the original course booking date, after which trainees will be required to pay and book the course again.
    • A request to reschedule or postponement is not deemed to be a new booking. It is simply a rescheduling and postponement, and done in good faith. Any cancellations/refunds in this scenario will apply to the original course booking date.

Cancellations – Potential Training Cancellation Scenarios

    • Food Safe Limited endeavors to provide trainees with a quality training experience. Some of our public training programmes include catering for a hot beverage on arrival in hotel conference training room facilities.
    • If an insufficient number of trainees confirm attendance then Food Safe Ltd reserves the right to cancel a training programme.
    • When a training programme is cancelled Food safe will try to do this as early as practicable and where possible provide an option for a trainee to re-book training.
    • Food Safe Ltd is committed to the legislation and a 48-hour downtime or as required by law and Ministry of Health protocols (training cancellation) if a trainer becomes sick with symptoms that can spread, to minimise the risk of safety to food companies who attend our training.
    • Training could also be cancelled for circumstances beyond our reasonable control such as travel or flight cancellations for a trainer, Covid-19 & close contact notification, road closures, extreme weather etc
    • Trainees who are traveling from a distance are advised to book refundable travel and accommodation to avoid inconvenience.
    • As a result of the above Food Safe will not be liable for any resulting cost to trainees.

Assessment – Achievement support

    • Outcome-based evidence for an achievement decision includes conversation, observation, documentation, and verification.
    • Verification conversations include audio/video recording.
    • On completion of training, Food Safe will update either the trainee/company manager / ITO (where applicable) about a trainee’s achievement status and if any further assessment is required.
    • If a trainee does not Achieve (A) the assessment the status will be Not-Yet-Achieved (NYA).
    • If this is the case (NYA) the options ahead for a trainee will be clearly explained by Food Safe.
