It means a trainee is required to pay the tuition if S/he secures the job after ending the graduation. The deferred pricing model covers an amount of $5,000. This amount is refundable, and it enables the opportunity to attend the classes and take the course. If a trainee secures a job, then s/he has to provide a placement fee.
