FAQs

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we’re typically asked, along with our responses.

Can Centrelink pay for my course?

Centrelink does not make payments directly to training organisations for participants’ courses. What you will have to do is register with a local job agency, your case worker will make the booking with us on your behalf as well as arrange payment.

Can I pay for my course in instalments?

All courses must be paid for in full either at the time of booking or at the time of registration. Our training course prices are extremely competitive and high quality. We aim to make them as affordable as possible while still providing superior training solutions.

After my course, can you find me work?

Unfortunately Edway Training does not provide recruitment services. The best places to look for employment are recruitment agencies and labour hire companies. There are a few job-searching websites (eg. Seek, Gumtree). Google Search for specific or general job roles (eg. labourer or traffic controller) is also a great source.

What if I struggle with English?

As per WorkSafe Victoria requirements a basic understanding in the reading and writing of English is required.

Unfortunately the use of interpreters and translators is not allowed and participants are required to complete assessments by themselves. A Statement of Attainment cannot be issued if the assessments are not successfully completed. If you are unsure of your level of English, we suggest you discuss it with the trainer prior to the start of the class. Our trainer can assess your level of English and advise it is sufficient to complete the course.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept VISA/Mastercard payments as well as EFTPOS or cash. We can invoice your company, however, this needs to be arranged prior to your course.

What is your cancellation policy?

Generally we require 48 business hours notice to cancel a booking or transfer the training to a different date. Fees apply if a refund or transfer request is made within 48 hours of the starting time. For full terms and conditions, please refer to the Refund section of our Terms and Conditions.
