We may update these terms and conditions from time to time, so we recommend that you revisit this page to stay informed of any changes that are made. Any changes to our terms will only apply to new Trainees who enrol under the new terms.

We accept enrolments from the enrolment open period at any time prior to the commencement of the Course or until sold out. Once the enrolment fee has been received on the terms below, we will also ask you to complete a personal details form.
Once we receive your personal details form we will send you an official welcome email into the course, confirming that your application is complete.
You will not hear further from us until we provide access to the course materials approximately 2 weeks before your first group live call. However, after your acceptance into the course you are welcome to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
4. Your commitment to us
4.1 The Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training requires a commitment of time, cooperation and participation. The Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training runs live for four months. It is our experience that to successfully complete the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator trainees need to dedicate approximately 5 to 8 hours of study each week spread across; course calls for each Module, community group interaction and course assessments and any additional self study they wish to partake in.
4.2 You acknowledge that undertaking the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training may at times be personally challenging and you will not knowingly undertake the course if you believe that you will not respond well to personal conversations, personal growth and constructive feedback.
4.3 We record all group calls and by enrolling in the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training you consent to these recordings. These recordings are only made available to trainees in the course in full, with snippets of calls used for marketing purposes.
4.4 It is highly recommended that you be on every call possible for your growth and learning where possible.
5. Your commitment to each other
5.1 You acknowledge that you are undertaking an adult learning process and that everyone has individual approaches to learning and participation. You acknowledge that there may be times when you or other trainees will have a difference of opinion or values and that you will deal with those differences with dignity and respect for yourself and others.
5.2 All trainees will be paired with a fellow trainee that you will practise your coaching skills on during the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training. You will treat your coaching partner with confidentiality, respect and professionalism.
5.3 There is an additional time commitment in having a coaching partner throughout the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training. The time commitment required through Semesters 2 will range between 15-30 minutes of communication to six 60 minute client sessions. Communications with your coaching partner can occur in person or online.
5.4 In undertaking partnership with your coaching partner for your Final Assessments 1, 2 and 3 through the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training, you commit to making yourself available at times that are mutually convenient to you both.
5.5 Cyclical School cannot be held responsible for the connection between you and your training coaching partner. Any breakdown in communication or engagement between the two of you is to be dealt with respectfully and privately, just as it would be with a coaching client and you acknowledge that Cyclical School will not intervene in that relationship unless gross misconduct is reported.

7. Your financial commitment
7.1 All prices are displayed in Australian Dollars and are exclusive of GST which only applies to Australian residents. GST will be added to the fees below during the enrolment process.
7.2 In order to secure your commitment in the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training we require a deposit of $700 be paid at the time of enrolment. Your deposit is retained and deducted from your course fee.
7.3 A deposit is not required where payment is made in full at the time of enrolment. Upfront payments receive a discounted rate of $3,590.00.
7.4 Alternatively, we accept payment by way of monthly instalments of $970 AUD per month (3 month plan) or $495 AUD per month (6 month plan). Your first payment is due one month after the date of your enrolment. Each following payment will be withdrawn from your account on the same or near date each month.
7.5 While we provide all of the Course materials, trainees are responsible for any other associated costs such as internet, computer, printing materials or purchasing additional recommended resources.
7.6. We reserve the right to immediately transfer you to a future course or remove you from a course entirely without refund should your payments come into arrears and/or you indicate to us that you will not be able to make future payments.
7.7 If at any point in time throughout the course you fail to make your course payments, we reserve the right to withhold your certificate of completion until your full course fees are paid.
8. Transferring and Withdrawing
8.1 We conduct our services in accordance with, and you have the rights as provided by, the Australian Consumer Law (“the law”). Under the law, we are not required to provide a refund for a change of mind for any reason.
8.2 Cooling off Period
Despite our rights by law, we offer a cooling period during the period of time between your enrolment and eight weeks prior to your course starting which is the date of your Opening First group call. After that time point 8.3 comes into effect. If you notify us prior to this time, you will receive a full refund of any fees paid minus a $500 AUD administration fee.
8.3 Withdrawal Period
The Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training commences when your training materials are provided to you which will be approximately 2 weeks prior to the first course call. Again, despite our rights by law, we will provide a partial refund for withdrawals where we receive notification after eight weeks prior to your course start date and prior to the Module 2 live class date, you will receive a full refund of any fees paid minus a $1000 AUD administration fee.
Partial Refund: If you notify us of your intention to withdraw prior to the Module 2 live class date you will receive a refund of funds paid, or a release of the obligation to continue to pay, less the amount of $1000.00 AUD which will be retained by us to cover the cost of the services already provided to you and/or due to inability to replace your enrolment at that stage of the course.
8.4 The Refund is only conditional upon:
- you having fully participated in the Course up until the date of your withdrawal, including attendance on all live calls, active presence in our online Private Facebook Group and Course Membership site, along with full completion and submission of any required work.
Once we receive the above from you, we will process your refund via Stripe card transactions within ten business days. Any ongoing payments will remain as due until this time. Stripe is the gateway through which we receive your payment no matter what type of credit card or financial institution you pay via. There are no exceptions to the way we provide refunds. All refunds are made via Stripe.
8.5 Withdrawing at any time means you will not be eligible to call yourself a Cyclical School Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training or undertake certification.
8.6 Cancellation / Late Withdrawal/Course Removal
If you withdraw from the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training after the completion of Module 2 you will have forfeited your course fees and must pay all fees if any are still owing for the course.
8.7 You acknowledge that if necessary Cyclical School will engage the services of a Debt Collection Agency to attain any owed fees from your course tuition that are outstanding and that if this is required you will be liable for the agency fees charged to do this. We reserve the right to remove you from the Natural Contraception & Fertility Awareness Educator Training if you are in arrears and/or failing to be in communication with us about owed funds. You will be reinstated at any time you pay your owed fees. No removal from the course without communication and opportunities to liaise with us regarding your owed fees will take place.
If something arises prior to the Opening First group call and you would like to transfer to another course at a later time, you may transfer your enrolment to a new date as long as availability permits. Transfers are only possible where we receive request and notification to transfer prior to the Module 2 live class date. Transfers are also only possible if the course fees continue to be paid on your current instalment plan and are only permitted once. If we cannot accommodate your transfer, you will be entitled to the partial refund if you choose to withdraw within the withdrawal period. Transfer requests after the Module 2 live class date will not be accepted.
