“I have been looking for this type of course for years and never really found anything like it, it was so helpful!”

Natasha - webinar attendee

“Thank you for putting together The Resp. Agent Course. I can't believe this is something ASIC has not yet done. I have worked at a few practices looking after corporate compliance and I'm shocked at the level of knowledge required in this area and the premise that it is just an 'admin' role. Well done!”

Nicole - webinar attendee

“Thanks for the webinar yesterday, I found it very helpful. I have been looking for some sort of training like this for a few years now.”
