Frequently Asked Questions
This covid thing has really thrown a spanner in the works, hasn't it?
So what now?
As a Melbourne-based business, interstate travel will remain a dicey proposition for some months to come. Our scheduled Melbourne classroom course dates are fine, but we've had to put a hold on face-to-face courses elsewhere - up until at least July 2021. It's a bummer, but there it is.
We do however have a series of interactive, live-streaming options for you. We've chunked-down our standard full-day course programs into two 3.5-hour sessions which are run over two consecutive mornings. Our live-streaming programs will be offered at a reduced price to our standard physical classroom rates. Our 20% combined discount structure for multi-person/ multi-course bookings still applies - see full details below.
Have all of the 2021 live-streaming and Melbourne classroom course dates been posted?
No, there's plenty more to come, including some brand new programs. Stay tuned...
Are the net101 courses any good?
Yes, they're excellent, but don’t take our word for it. Read actual posts from real people who have attended.
How up-to-date are the course programs?
What if I attend a course and don't like it for some reason?
We want you to find the right course for your specific needs. If you're not happy with how the course is going you're entitled to a full refund, no questions asked. A few sensible conditions apply.
Can I retake a course at a discount?
Yes, another go-round can greatly help cement the learnings - and the course programs are continually being updated. There's an 80% discount off the single course price if you'd like to do this. Please contact Tim for a redemption code.
Which net101 course is right for me?
We’re glad you asked that. Here’s a tight summary of the courses on offer.

If you have been to a past net101 course you are entitled to a 20% discount on any other net101 course. Please contact Tim for a redemption code.
DOING 2 COURSES - TAKE THEM TOGETHER?
Can I book 2 courses, get the multi-course discount, but do them on different months?
Any two course dates can be booked to qualify for a combined 20% discount. It’s completely up to you whether you want to attend back-to-back classes, or spread them out.
COURSE PAYMENT OPTIONS

Full payment can be made using Visa, MasterCard or AMEX. Upon completion of your order, you will be sent a tax receipt via email. If you choose the pay by invoice option when registering, upon completion you will be sent an invoice via email with pay-in details for direct credit or cheque.
Can I get a purchase order number included on my invoice?
Yes. Let us know what you'd like included after you've booked the course and we'll send you an amended invoice.
Do you offer a payment plan option?
Yes, we do. Payment can be made in instalments - half before the course date and the remainder after. Please contact Tim to arrange a payment schedule which works for you.
LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS
Can I book in for a course at the very last minute?

Comfortable causal. You might want to bring a spare top - sometimes the aircon does its job too well!
REFUNDS, TRANSFERS & SUBSTITUTIONS
I’ve booked a course but can no longer attend – can I get a full refund?
Yes, if you give us at least 28 days notice before the day of the course.
Can I transfer to another date?
Yes, if it is for medical reasons (yourself or a dependent) and you give us at least 24 hours notice before the start time of the course. Only one transfer is allowed and it must be used within 3 months of the original course date. A refund option is not offered on an already transferred course.

IN-HOUSE TRAINING OPTION
Do you also provide in-house training?
Yes, economically this makes sense if you want several or more people to be trained together at your own workplace. Please contact Tim if you're interested in hosting a program.
WHERE'S THAT COURSE?
I can see a course description on the site but where are the dates for it?
It could be a course we don't offer anymore, or the main topics have been wrapped into another course, or it's for in-house delivery only. Please contact Tim if you're unsure.
Can I purchase a course gift voucher for a colleague or friend?
Yes. Electronic or hardcopy gift vouchers can be purchased for any dollar amount and applied towards any net101 social media course being run nationally. We can also customise the wording and include your own logo if you'd like. Please contact Tim if you're thinking of giving someone such a lovely gift.
