Fees vary by programme. For details refer to our Courses section here.

The materials and examination fees cover printing, packaging and courier of study material, materials used at workshops (food, herbs, remedies etc.), tutor time for examinations and the like.

Application for Prior Learning/Cross Crediting

The fee for Recognition of Prior Learning is $100 per course that is recognised up to the value of $500 (5 courses).

To go through the Recognition of Prior Learning Process you will initially be invoiced for a $100 admin fee. This helps to cover the time taken by our team to work through the transcripts and match these against the courses to reach an outcome. If the RPL process is finalised and a person enrols with us the $100 fee that was paid will be taken off the final invoice (1 course will not be charged).

Textbooks and Equipment
Information on compulsory texts is available in each qualification section. The cost of compulsory textbooks and materials is not included in course fees. For costs and to purchase textbooks please refer to the NCNZ Bookshop.

First Aid Certificates
To gain completion for some qualifications you are required to hold a current First Aid certificate (see the qualification section information for detail). You will be required to complete a comprehensive two-day First Aid course (US6400, 6401, 6402) or refresher training as appropriate. The cost of any training is the responsibility of the student. A copy of your valid First Aid certificate must then be sent into NCNZ.

Students may withdraw from their programme of study at any time:

  • If a student withdraws from their programme of study within the first 8 days from commencement of that programme a full refund will be made less $500.00 or 10%, whichever is the lesser amount, provided that all course material is returned in perfect condition within this time frame.
  • Student withdrawals after eight days shall NOT be eligible for any refund of fees
