Registration Payment, Confirmation and Cancellation

Registration Payment

Acceptance of Registration for any workshop will only be confirmed once the Registration Fee has been received in full by the AAI.  (The exception being those opting for the credit installment plan, see details below.) 

Workshops will be filled on a payment received basis. Places may be limited, with priority given to paid registrations. Attendance at the workshop or the provision of Workshop Materials will not be permitted where Registration Fees have not been received.

“Interest Free” Credit Installment Plan

A Registration Fee payment option is available but usually reserved only for small firms and individuals. An initial $250 is charged to the applicant’s credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Bankcard only) on receipt of Registration. The balance of the Registration Fee will be charged over the next three months in equal payments. Application must be made to the AAI for this service.

Workshop Date Confirmation

All AAI workshop dates are subject to confirmation which is dependant on sufficient registrations being received to warrant the workshop proceeding.  The decision to confirm a workshop will be at the discretion of the AAI.  All Registered Participants will be notified by email that the workshop is confirmed.  In most cases this will be well in advance of the proposed workshop date and no later than 10 days before the scheduled commencement date.

Once a workshop date has been confirmed, this will be displayed on the AAI website under the “Details” page for that workshop.  The AAI will endeavor to confirm workshop dates as early as possible.

The AAI will not be held responsible for any participant travel or accommodation expenses in relation to any workshop, whether that workshop has or has not been confirmed.  Please contact the AAI ( should you wish to discuss the confirmation status of any workshop.

Cancellation and Refunds - Cancellation by Registered Participant:

Registered participants who have paid their registration in full may cancel that registration on notification to the AAI no later than 30 days before the workshop commencement date.  A 10% administration fee will be charged on all such cancellations.

Cancellations made between 30 to 15 days before the workshop commencement date will be entitled to a refund less 25%.  Cancellations within the period 14 days or less before workshop commencement will be entitled to a refund less 50%.  No refunds are available once a workshop has commenced.

Cancellation and Refunds – Cancellation by AAI:

Should any workshop be cancelled by the AAI, a full refund of all Registration Fees will be made, regardless of the proposed commencement date.
