Registering for RedR Australia Humanitarian Training Courses

Select the course you would like to attend, complete the registration form and pay your course deposit fee via our secure credit card payment facility. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how complete your medical and travel form and gain access to essential course information. 

If a specific course is full, you can apply to our waiting list for that course. If you do this, we will alert you if a place becomes available. Allocation of wait listed places is on a first in, first served basis. Applicants will be informed of an available place by email or phone and the offer will be open for 48 hours before it defaults to the next person on the wait list. To apply to the waitlist, please contact training@redr.org.au

RedR Australia Course Payment Procedures

Unless otherwise stated, all courses are residential and course fees are inclusive of meals, accommodation, training and training materials. Transport to and from the venue is not included.

A non-refundable deposit of $400 (AUD) is payable at the time you enroll. RedR Australia’s preferred payment method is via credit card however invoicing may be arranged. The balance of payment must be paid in full at least 14 calendar days prior to the course commencement date. International applicants must pay deposit and balance via credit card only.

Please ensure your name is included in the title of your bank transfer and the title and month of the course you are undertaking if possible. 

Withdrawing from a course

RedR Australia reserves the right to cancel an applicant’s place in a course if the balance of the course fee is not received 14 calendar days prior to the course commencement date.

If cancellation of a reserved course booking is received by RedR Australia less than 14 calendar days preceding the advertised course commencement date, 50% of the total course fee will be non-refundable. Special circumstances may apply and must be verifiable with medical and other certificates to justify a late cancellation and full reimbursement (less deposit).

RedR will allow a participant to defer their participation to a subsequent course without penalty once only if that notice is received 14 calendar days preceding the advertised start date of the course originally enrolled in. Course enrolment may be transferable to another person, without penalty, and you should contact training@redr.org.au to discuss options.

A participant that withdraws from a course once it has commenced automatically forfeits 50% of the course fee plus $500 or pro-rata fees for the remaining 50% of the fee whichever is the greater. For example, a person who withdraws after day 1 of a four day course will lose 50% of the course fee plus an additional 25% of the remaining course fee (or $500) and after day three of the same course an additional 75% (or $500) whilst a person who withdraws after day 1 of a six day course would lose 50% of the course fee plus an additional 16.6% (or $500) of the remaining fee.
