business account of PEETO.
2. All student fees more than $500 (GST Inclusive) are required to be deposited in the
Student Fees Trust Account of the Institute in advance. Fees are drawn down after
commencement in stages as the course is completed.

Institute for:
3.1.  5 calendar days for all courses under 13 weeks and after the Trustee has given their permission for the funds to be released.
