    Launching Building Better Adverting Courses

    In partnership with the Institute of Personal Care Science we have developed practical on-line courses to help industry understand and apply the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code.

    We understand how complex and difficult the process can be to develop an advert and get an advert approved for complementary medicines.

    Our latest education initiative is designed to help.

    The on-line courses are self paced and explain the complex regulations simply and practically. 

    We have launched an Introductory Program and an Advanced Program and they are priced very competitively. Just think how much time, energy and resources you will save by developing adverts that get approved with the minimum of fuss.
