Note: Fees for Australian and New Zealand trainees are now overdue. Trainees who have not paid their fees will have the interval between January 31 and the receipt of payment by the college deemed interrupted training.

Trainees who do not pay their fees by February 28 will lose access to the training portfolio system.



New applicants and trainees

Information regarding the fees payable upon joining the college is available on the application and registration page.


How to pay your fee

  • Payment can be made online via the ANZCA portal at https://members.anzca.edu.au. Once payment has been successful, you will be sent a receipt via email.
  • Applicants and trainees in Australia may pay via BPAY®. You can obtain ANZCA’s BPAY biller code and your reference number by clicking the link above. If you pay via BPAY, please submit your ongoing acknowledgement of the training agreement via email to training@anzca.edu.au
  • If you prefer to send your payment to the college, please use the payment form (2019).


Continuing applicants and trainees 

  • Continuing applicants must pay an annual application maintenance fee. If you have obtained a training position for the coming hospital employment year, you are required to register as a trainee and are not required to pay the maintenance fee. The registration process should be completed within four weeks of commencing training.


  • Continuing trainees must pay an annual training fee. Reduced fees may be available for trainees undertaking part-time training and/or interrupted training.


Trainees undertaking part-time training for a continuous period of at least 52 weeks
  • If you will be in part-time training for a continuous period of at least 52 weeks you need to apply for part-time training. Following approval, your annual training fee invoice will be amended based on the percentage of full-time equivalent (FTE) rounded to the nearest tenth plus an administration fee. 
  • If you will be in part-time training for less than 52 weeks continuously you will need to pay the full annual training fee. 
  • You must submit the application prospectively to the college as effective from 2019 hospital employment year (HEY) no more than four weeks prior to receipt of application and supporting documentation will be eligible for approved vocational training (AVT) and therefore may affect your eligibility for a reduced annual training fee.
  • Please allow adequate time for processing of your application.

Trainees who will interrupt training for a continuous period of at least 13 weeks
  • If you will be in interrupted training for a continuous period of at least 13 weeks, you may be eligible for a reduced annual training fee.
  • Please apply prospectively for interrupted training if you know which period you will be interrupting your training. Once your application is approved, your invoice will be amended to reflect a pro-rata annual training fee and pro-rata registration maintenance fee based on the months you will be spending in training. 
  • If you plan to interrupt your training during the year but do not yet know the dates, you should pay the full annual training fee now. Once your period of interrupted training has been approved, you will receive a refund for the difference.
  • As effective from 2019 HEY any late application (after 4 weeks of the requested start date for interrupted training) should be submitted with a justification; no fee reduction if there is no justification for late application.
  • Please allow adequate time for processing of your application.

Trainees about to be admitted to fellowship
  • If you are not a fellow by December 31, 2018, you are required to pay the full 2019 annual training fee before your application for admission to fellowship is reviewed by the DPA Assessor. Once you are admitted to fellowship you will receive an annual training fee credit on your invoice for the subscription to fellowship and entrance fee. Your first fellowship subscription fee will be determined by a pro-rata calculation based on the month you are admitted. 
  • See the fellowship page for more information.
