Important information from AIM Group:

Please be advised to only enrol if genuinely interested. These courses are paid for via government funds in order to allow the public to complete them for free. AIM Group advise that if an individual enrols on a course, accesses these government funds and makes no attempt whatsoever to complete it, they may be liable for the fee of enrolment. This classifies as a blatant non-effort and a waste of funding. However, if the individual needs extra time (an additional 3/4 weeks for example) and communicates this to the college with a valid reason, extensions will be granted upon request.
