About this course

In 2010, state and territory-based credit laws were moulded into a national approach known as the National Consumer Credit Code.

With it, a large range of requirements and obligations were added. Failure to comply with these can have very serious consequences for those involved.

Safetrac’s ‘National Consumer Credit Protection’ course focuses on the application of the Act, your obligations and how to comply with them.
