6) EDUCATION POLICY

Registration – Classes are scheduled monthly and new classes are added on a monthly basis.  Please check our website or come by The Kustom Kommune for up to date course information.  Comprehensive course descriptions can be found online, and it is recommended that you read through them fully prior to registering.  Advanced registration is necessary. Instructors, class times, and class dates are subject to change.  To register for a class, students must pay in full at the time of enrolment. The Kustom Kommune accepts cash or Electronic Funds Transfer. To sign up after the registration deadline, please call to ensure enrolment is still open.
Withdrawals & Transfers – In the event a student must withdraw from a class, he or she may do so any time before the registration deadline of the class, and will receive a 75% refund of class cost plus any equipment or material fees. Class enrolment is non-transferable: requesting to transfer to another section of the same class is considered a withdrawal. Withdrawals on or after the class registration deadline are not refundable and course fees are not transferable.  To withdraw from a course please email getgreasy@kustomkommune.com.au. A credit of your enrolment fee may be issued for medically excused emergencies (with documentation) or family bereavement.  Other than this, there will be no exceptions.  Please give us as advanced notice as possible for consideration.
Material & Equipment Fees – Classes that make use of tools or supplies will most likely require a material or equipment fee. This pays for in-class consumable items (drill bits, gas, paint, screens) and the upkeep of tools used for that specific class (saw sharpening, tool repair, welding tips, software updates).  In some circumstances, students may also be required to purchase certain supplies on their own.  This will be clearly indicated in the full online course description.
Missed Classes & Lateness – Missing the first day of a course may be grounds for withdrawal without refund.  Please email getgreasy@kustomkommune.com.au if you know you are going to miss the first day of a course. We cannot offer complimentary makeup sessions outside class time or in concurrent or future course sections. Instructors are not obligated to catch students up during scheduled class time for missed sessions or excessive lateness.
If We Cancel or Reschedule a Class – Most classes offered at The Kustom Kommune must have a minimum of 5 students registered in order for the class to commence. In the event a course does not receive sufficient enrolment, it may be canceled. Students will be notified at least 24 hours prior to the start of the class.  In the event of a cancellation, students will be refunded within 5 business days.  If we reschedule a class to another date, students are also entitled to a full refund. The Kustom Kommune reserves the right to change instructors without prior notification, and to change class location and meeting times by up to an hour with 48 hours prior notice.
At the conclusion of every class, students will receive an emailed evaluation request.  We depend upon your feedback to help us improve our course offerings. If you have any issue with a class you are currently enrolled in, please either raise your issue with the instructor at the end of the class meeting or email getgreasy@kustomkommune.com.au.  It is our general experience that most issues can be satisfactorily addressed before the course concludes.  

If you have any questions, please give us a call or send an email to getgreasy@kustomkommune.com.au
