The Public Trust
The New Zealand Government requires all private training establishments registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), to have some form of protection for fees paid to them in advance.
Fee Protect is a student fee trust account which ensures you receive a refund of the fees (or portion of fees) you pay to a training provider if the provider is unable to complete the course, for example due to closure, insolvency or loss of NZQA accreditation.
Fee Protect means the last thing you will need to worry about is what happens to your fees.
