Fair Trading Law Compliance Training

Significant business risk surrounds every interaction and communication between your organisation and your customers. Increasing attention from regulators and the community mean that organisations need to be aware of and pro-actively manage this risk. Risks involve not only legal and financial penalties, but also a potentially damaging loss of reputation.

This course helps pro-actively manage your risk through comprehensive and practical education.
