Fee Details

  • If the AMI Diploma fee is to be paid as per the SMTC Fee Instalment Plan tabled above, a first instalment of $500 is payable upon application, with each subsequent instalment due on the 1st of each month for 10 consecutive months, commencing the month prior to the course start date.
  • Orientation Certificate course fees will be invoiced on application. Full payment of fees is required to confirm your enrolment.
  • If the AMI Diploma fee is not paid upfront, the balance of the fee may be paid in instalments as set out in the Fee Instalment schedule above (AMI Diploma Course and combined Foundation and AMI Diploma Course only)
  • When enrolling in an AMI Diploma course a non refundable $500 first instalment is payable upon enrolment. This $500 will only be refunded in the event the student is not successful securing a place on the course or the course is cancelled.
  • It is an AMI requirement that all AMI Diploma students hold current membership with them for the duration of their course. AMI membership costs 30 Euro for a 12 month period. AMI requires that SMTC collect membership fees on their behalf. The AMI membership fees are in addition to the course fees and will be invoiced separately.

Note: If you are paying your invoice via international bank transfer an amount of $20 AUD will be automatically added to your invoice to cover the international bank transfer fees charged by our bank.

Fees, cancellation and refund policy


Orientation Certificate to AMI Diploma Tuition Fee Credit

Each student who completes an AMI Orientation Certificate receives a tuition fee credit of ($1300) toward tuition fees for the next AMI Diploma.

Terms and Conditions

The credit is subject to the following terms and conditions:

  • Orientation Certificate and AMI Diploma must both be administered by SMTC;
  • Orientation Certificate and AMI Diploma must be the same age grouping (0-3, 3-6 or 6-12);
  • The student must study the Orientation Certificate then the consecutive AMI Diploma being administered by SMTC to be eligible;
  • The student must satisfy the relevant AMI Diploma course admission requirements to order to join the relevant AMI Diploma course;
  • The credit is applied in respect of a single student and is non-transferable between students;  
  • If the student’s employer pays the Orientation fees and/or AMI Diploma tuition fees for the student, the credit still applies in respect of the tuition fees applicable in respect of that student;
  • The credit is applied against the final payment of the student’s AMI Diploma tuition fees.  If the student discontinues without making the final payment of tuition fees due and payable for the AMI Diploma, this voids the credit.
  • If the credit is not utilised in whole or part against the AMI Diploma tuition fees of the student, it is non-refundable and cannot be applied against other types of SMTC fees; and
  • Does not include the Foundation Certificate.
