4. Learner's Account Registration

The Site is completely free for learners to use. There are no charges to post the course interest to request for quotation/proposal.

Learners can post any number of the course interests to request for Quotation/Proposal from Course Providers. When posting the course interest, Learners will be asked a number of questions to enable Course Providers to understand the project requirements for Course Interest, if possible.

Course providers need to purchase credits from us in order to provide Learners with a proposal/quotation but the only fee Learners may be liable for is the course fees for any courses as agreed between the Learner and the Course Providers.

We will send each Request to a selection of relevant Course Providers to review and decide if they want to contact the Learner at our discretion.

If a Course Provider chooses to provide a proposal/quotation, the Learner will receive a message from the Course Provider and/or a phone call to discuss the course requirement in details.
