Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions are to help you understand what our policies are regarding course attendance, refunds and intellectual property. 

Whilst Edoceo Pty Ltd trading as Casley-Smith International Australasia ("we," "us') have attempted to make the information on this website as accurate as possible, the information is provided in good faith without any express or implied warranty. We attempt to ensure that the content is current; however, we do not guarantee its currency or accuracy.  

Order Placement, Acceptance and Refunds
1.1 Under Australian consumer law, a retailer must provide a repair, replacement or refund if an item is faulty or significantly not as described.
1.2 Refunds for change of mind are not a legal obligation. We would like to ensure that our students are pleased with the educational material that we provide. We offer the following conditions for consideration of a partial refund (minus merchant fees) and a $75(AU) admin fee:
- written request for a refund, to info@lymphoedematherapist.com.au, must be received within 4 weeks of the online learning commencing
- we need to understand the reason for the refund request so that we can implement quality improvement processes
1.3 If you are sick you will need to complete the course at your own expense at a later date. Being sick does not entitle you to a refund. We run our practical courses in pairs and as such if someone cannot attend our courses it causes some difficulty in the practical sessions. We therefore require at least 24 hours notice.
1.4 In 2020, in the event that our course is postponed due to government restrictions caused by the Coronavirus-19, we will either refund your course fees or move your enrolment to a 2021 course at the same rate.
1.5 Any flights or travel expenses are to be booked by you at your own risk.
1.6 Our courses are currently recognised by the Australasian Lymphology Association (ALA). All Australian training providers are currently undergoing a re-accreditation process. You can read more about this on the ALA’s website: https://www.lymphoedema.org.au/accreditation-nlpr/lymphoedema-training/
If our courses are not successfully re-accredited for 2021 and beyond, and we therefore cannot provide an “ALA accredited course,” course fees for our 2021 students will be refunded (less any transaction fees). The ALA is obligated to inform us of our accreditation outcome by the end of December 2020.

Scope of Practice and Ongoing CPD
3.1 The courses teach about decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT) as pioneered by Dr's Judith and John Casley-Smith. After the course, when using the techniques taught in the course, you acknowledge that you must act within your own scope of professional practice and professional code of conduct. If a patient presents with needs that our outside of your usual scope of practice, you will be expected to refer onward as appropriate. 
3.2 Lymphatic techniques are being updated. It is recommended that you seek to complete ongoing continuing professional development courses every two years, as you would be required to do so for organisations such as AHPRA, ESSA, AAMT or your professional association in order to maintain your professional registration. 
3.3 It is not mandatory to join the Australasian Lymphology Association (ALA) to practice as a qualified lymphoedema therapist. There are some advantages however including possible indirect assistance with marketing your lymphoedema services and ongoing continuing professional development opportunities. The ALA provides a register of qualified therapists known as the National Lymphoedema Practitioner Register (NLPR) that allows you to be found (by anonymous postcode search) on their website. This is useful if patients are trying to source lymphoedema therapists in their local area.  You are encouraged to review the ALA website prior and after undertaking training to first asses your eligibility for listing on the NLPR and then to explore ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities once qualified.  The ALA website can be found here: https://www.lymphoedema.org.au
