“This was a fantastic course which was run by experts in the field.  The course structure and practical work helped me to understand the superannuation industry, the regulatory frameworks that apply and the benefits available to members during accumulation, transition and retirement phases.”

“I recently completed SCS’s RG146 Refresher and found it to be much more comprehensive than a course I had done with another provider previously. I was also impressed with how up-to-date the content was as the course covered all the current issues impacting the industry.”
