Are there any other payment plans?

We exclusively offer an annual subscription which offers enhanced benefits to maximise your learning experience.

Can I purchase individual courses?

Yes, some of our courses are available for individual sale. However, we highly recommend our annual subscription, priced at $599. It provides access to over 97 hours of CPD content, updated regularly with new courses and webinars by leading experts. This subscription ensures a comprehensive and cohesive learning experience, as our courses are designed to complement each other and provide a holistic understanding of the subject matter. The annual membership offers the best value, as purchasing individual courses may not provide the same comprehensive experience and could result in a fragmented learning journey.

Are all courses and webinars free? 

While the majority of the resources are included in the annual subscription fee, some webinars and longer courses may require payment. However, if any courses require payment, members of the academy can access these at a discounted rate. The reason for the cost is due to the investment required to produce these materials and adequately compensate the speakers and team involved.

What is the annual Academy membership, and why is it recommended?

The annual Academy membership is the most cost-effective option we offer. It provides access to all courses and webinars within the Academy, allowing you to explore a wide range of topics and make meaningful connections between them. We believe that the most effective learning happens when you can see the interrelationships between different subjects. By offering an annual membership, we aim to encourage a more comprehensive and integrated learning experience for our members.

Can I purchase a membership for a shorter duration, such as monthly or quarterly?

Currently, we only offer an annual academy membership as it aligns with our educational philosophy of promoting comprehensive learning through interconnected courses. We do not offer shorter-duration memberships to ensure our members have ample time to explore and benefit from the full range of courses available.

What if I only need one specific course and not the entire academy membership?

We understand that you may have specific learning needs, but we highly recommend considering the annual academy membership. By doing so, you not only gain access to the course you need but also have the opportunity to explore related courses that can enrich your knowledge and provide a more well-rounded education.

Where can I learn more about the courses available in the academy?

You can find detailed information about our courses, including course descriptions, outlines, and prerequisites, on the courses tab on the website. If you have specific questions about a course or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer support team.

How do I purchase the annual academy membership?

You can purchase the annual academy membership directly from the website. Visit the Join Now page and follow the instructions to complete your purchase securely. Once you’ve completed the purchase, you’ll gain immediate access to all the courses within the academy.

What is the cancellation and refunds policy?

Any subscriber to these Online Courses is required to make full payment of their chosen subscription package via the offered online payment facility prior to receiving access to the course material included in that specific package. The subscriber must make their purchase decision mindfully, as the order is definite once submitted. No refunds are offered for change-of-heart cancellations or purchases processed in error. Right to cancellation may be accepted only in very specific cases, however, no later than 5 days after the start of the subscription. Psych Scene may, at its discretion, cancel a subscriber’s account for any reason, including violation of these Terms of Use. Under such circumstances, Psych Scene will refund to the account holder a pro-rated portion of their paid subscription fees. A cancellation fee of 5% will be deducted from all refund amounts payable, regardless of the reason for cancellation, to cover for the transaction fees charged by the payment facility.

You can cancel your subscription through your account at any time before the end of the current billing period. Cancellation will take effect at the end of your annual subscription period. We do not refund or credit for partially used billing periods to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Can I access the academy on my phone?

Yes, the Academy is accessible on your smartphone (Android, Desktop, and iOS) and laptop.

Will I need internet access to stream videos?

Yes, internet access is needed.

We recommend a minimum connection speed of 1.5Mbps. This is usually available on most home and hospital computers. If your computer does not show the video within a few seconds, it is advisable to wait for the video to upload.
