    Consumer Rights

    The ACCC states that services must:

    • be provided with acceptable care and skill or technical knowledge and taking all necessary steps to avoid loss and damage
    • be fit for the purpose or give the results that you and the business had agreed to
    • be delivered within a reasonable time when there is no agreed end date

     Where a consumer considers these guidelines were not met, please refer to our Appeals/Complaints Policy found at www.kase.com.au 

    Please be aware that consumer guarantees do not apply where the consumer:

    • asked for a service to be done in a certain way against the advice of the business or were unclear about what you wanted
    • got what you asked for but simply changed your mind, found it cheaper somewhere else, decided you did not like the purchase or had no use for it.

    RTO Rights

    The RTO reserves the right to refuse engagement with a client where it sees it is unable to deliver satisfactory service, this might be due to location of the learner or exorbitant costs to the RTO, or for any other reason; this is at the RTO’s discretion. The RTO further reserves the right to refuse or withdraw enrolment where it has deemed the client unfit to enrol or where continuation of the course would result in non-compliance with the relevant Standards, State Bodies or Qualification requirements, or for any other reason the RTO sees as significant.  Where this situation would occur, the RTO will notify the appropriate party via written correspondence.  The recipient has the opportunity to submit a compliant or appeal using our Appeals/Complaints Policy and Procedure found on our website. Where this occurs, the issue will be dealt with through the established Appeals/Complaints Policy.
