Performance & Governance Policies & Procedures

International Horse College ensures that its director:

a. is vested with sufficient authority to ensure International Horse College complies with the RTO Standards at all times, and

b. meet each of the relevant criteria specified in the Fit and Proper Person Requirements as listed below


International Horse College satisfies the Financial Viability Risk Assessment Requirements


Where International Horse College requires, either directly or through a third party, a prospective or current learner to prepay fees in excess of a total of $1,500. (being the threshold payment amount), International Horse College holds current membership of a Tuition Assurance Scheme approved by its VET Regulator. If International Horse College is unable to provide services for which the learner has prepaid, the membership in the Tuition Assurance Scheme must ensure
* the learner will be placed into an equivalent course such that:
– the new location is geographically close to where the learner had been enrolled, and
– the leaner receives the full services for which they have prepaid at no additional cost to the leaner or
* if an equivalent course cannot be found, the learner is paid a refund of any prepaid fees for services yet to be delivered above the threshold prepaid feee amount.


International Horse College holds public liability insurance that covers the scope of its online training throughout its registration period

Learners are advised that that any equestrian environment they work in should hold public liability insurance.


International Horse College provides accurate and current information on its performance and governance consistent with the Data Provision Requirement as updated from time to time.
