Advice NI is following COVID-19 guidance and has cancelled face to face training until further notice. We will confirm closer to the time if this course will be delivered via the online Zoom platform instead of face to face. The skilled level Using the Consumer Credit Act In Practice course builds on the knowledge gained from the Wiseradviser e-learning course- The Consumer Credit Act (NI) or existing knowledge of the subject. Trainees are expected to have completed the above e- learning course recently. It is a very practical day designed to provide core practical knowledge sufficient to enable advisers to deal with everyday cases in their agency.
