Registration is via Trybooking whether you are paying via cost centre transfer, invoice or credit card. The Trybooking link is available on the information page for each course.  Please note there is an additional Trybooking fee of 30 cents per registration which will be applied when your register online.

Payment by cost centre transfer (MCRI employees only):

  • Ask your cost centre manager to email MCRI finance dept with a request to transfer funds from your cost centre to CEBU 68092 and CC Fiona Snashall into the correspondence.  
  • Once Fiona receives confirmation of payment from MCRI finance dept she will email you a unique promotional code with which to register.
  • Promotional code cannot be generated until payment confirmed.

Please DO NOT book directly through Trybooking then organise a reimbursement/cost centre transfer after the event. This creates an additional workload for both CEBU and the finance department. 

Payment by invoice (RCH and external organisations): 

  • Email Fiona your organisation name and the name and email address of the person responsible for payment.  We need to know who to follow up in the event the invoice is not paid.
  • Include your name, the course name and date (many of our courses are run multiple times) and the cost of the course.
  • Completed invoice will be emailed to you with a promotional code with which to register via Trybooking.
