NZQA Credit Registration
As an NZQA accredited Private Training Establishment (PTE), TR Master Drive Services register NZQA Credits on behalf of the Student. NZQA credit registration is compulsory.
NZQA Credits are based on the credits available on a specified unit standard completed as part of a course. These credits are added to your record of learning held by NZQA. These are your credits and support your evidence of completion of unit standards and qualifications.
There is a cost to deliver the course, register the credits and administer the registration of credits. Direct costs from NZQA are passed on through the specified credit cost.
Where additional costs exist, these are mentioned on the course detail page – (E.G. NZTA Licence fees or costs associated with medical certifications)
Confirmation of Order / Course Registration
All customers will receive a confirmation of their registration via e-mail when payment is received, direct credit requested or on account selected for registration of a course through TR Master Drive Services website. Customers, following a course payment, will also receive an invoice with their order.
Receipt of the automated ‘receipt of registration’ from the website is not a confirmation of acceptance on a course.
A contact form submitted, onsite request form submitted or an email request sent is not a course registration.
Course registration is not confirmed until payment has been made, and prerequisites (if any) are met and verified.
Where you are making a booking that includes more than one attendee; or booking a course on site, a minimum number of attendees is required. If the number attending changes:
- Additional fees will be charged for any increase in the number of attendees in accordance with the registration costs (advertised or agreed)
- A reduction of the numbers of attendee’s is subject to our cancellation policy or minimum number requirements.
For clients with approved credit accounts the course fee is invoiced at the completion of each course. Full payment is required no later than the 20th of the month following the date of our invoice. Late or non-payment may incur collection and/or legal fees for which the client accepts full liability for by registering for, or attending, the course.
For clients who do not have an approved credit account, full payment is required on registration for the course. Pre-course or course material will not be handed out until full payment is received.
We accept payment for purchases made through the TR Master Drive website via credit cards (Visa and Master Card credit cards accepted only) or via Account to Account transfer. All charges are made in New Zealand dollars and include GST. Credit Card payments are processed at the time of your purchase via the DPS secure payment system. This is a secure payment gateway through DPS and security certificate verified for your protection. Note – credit card payments incur a 2% surcharge.
By registering for a course using the direct credit option, course registration will remain a request only until registration is made. For popular courses it is recommended that payment is made promptly as paid registrations will be given priority.
To enable a payment on account, you must have a credit account with TR Master Drive Services, accepted prior to the registration of a course.
Please contact TR Master Drive Services if you wish to apply for a credit account.
Client Cancellation/Withdrawal/Refund Policy
TR Master Drive Services operates a strict Postponement and Cancellation policy. Notice of a cancellation or request for postponement must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should a customer wish to postpone or cancel attendance on a training course, 5 working days’ notice is required prior to the course date.
- Where notice of cancellation is given at least 5 working days prior to the schedule course start, full payment less $50 is refundable
- Where notice is less than 5 working days and greater than 72 working hours (3 working days) before the course date, 50% of the total course fee is refundable.
- Any postponements or cancellations given with less than 72 working hours’ notice (including non-appearance or non-completion) will result in full course fees being charged.
We are happy to substitute course attendees provided they meet course criteria
TR Master Drive Services Course Cancellation/Abandonment
All practical training is subject to cancellation/abandonment in the event of unsafe or illegal conditions. Where possible the Master Drive Services instructor will make any decision relating to this in consultation with the nominated client representative.
This may be due to trainer availability (sickness bereavement etc…), venue availability or low course attendance for example. TR Master Drive Services will endeavour to deliver the course in the first instance with course cancellation a last resort.
While we do our very best to provide a minimum of 48 hours’ notice, from time to time the notice may be as little as 24 hours.
We will arrange for an alternative time and date for attendance and where you are not able to attend and return all course materials in original condition, a full refund of payments for the course is provided
Where a start time for a training course is provided, this is the actual start time. Times are given to ensure that the learning required for the course can be delivered in the time specified.
TR Master Drive Services’ Trainers have the right to refuse entry to any attendee to a course that is already underway and the standard cancellation policy applies (see cancellation policy above).
Course Materials and Required Reading
Course material may contain pre-course reading and in some instances course assessments. Materials for pre-work in relation to any courses will be delivered following full payment for the course to ensure you have sufficient time to obtain required knowledge and complete the required assessments.

TR Master Drive Services may send you emails relating to products purchased, transactions and other activities on the website, and for promoting and marketing other TR Master Drive Services product and services to you including new courses, notifications or specials on offer.
