Course Description

At RTO Doctor, our aim is to assist you through education, empowerment providing you with the tools and resources to excel in whatever it is that you do. One area of focus for us is helping you be compliant in all of your marketing and advertising practices and ensuring that you're not inviting the regulator to your doorstep just through your website, marketing and/or advertising materials.

We have designed and developed this short course to help your marketing and compliance teams to make sure that your marketing and advertising materials as well as your website are always compliant.

Each participant who successfully completes the course will receive a Certificate from RTO Doctor as evidence of professional development.
