Accreditation fees

From 1 July 2017, the accreditation fee is $3,500 (incl. GST) to apply for accreditation which covers accreditation for 5 years. Where a training provider wishes to extend accreditation to 7 years to align with TEQSA accreditation time frames, there is an additional fee of $700 per year (incl. GST) and the total fee is $4,900 (incl. GST).

An accreditation fee is charged for each separate course and for each separate location where the course is run. Where there is an online or distance mode of delivery, this counts as an additional location in terms of fees.

Accreditation fees will increase on 1 July each year by $20 (incl. GST) per year.

There is an administrative fee of $220 (incl. GST) for  EPAC administrative services other than the annual accreditation fee.

The fee is an application fee and is not refundable after 14 days of receipt of payment. Where a request for refund is received within 14 days, withdrawing the submission, a 10% administration fee is payable.
The fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the accreditation process.

How to pay

Full payment of the application fee must accompany the relevant application form. Assessment of an application will not commence until payment is received by PACFA.

Please contact the EPAC Administrator to ask for an Invoice prior to submitting the application.
