A nit-picky "flaw", but it might confuse someone...
medicare levy = $gross salary PA * 1.5% = $622.28
medicare levy = $gross salary PA * 0.015 = $622.28

I'm no tax expert, but I believe your training should (as you say) come
out after tax. On my limited tax knowledge I thought the rest of the
calculations looked 'about right' but I didn't check your figures.
