The Chartered Trading Standards Institute has joined forces with Virtual College to offer TradeSimple – a range of online courses for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Online compliance courses

Retail legislation includes a wide range of topics and the rules are constantly evolving and changing making it difficult for organisations to keep up. Whilst Trading Standards officers continue to work to support businesses and advise on consumer law, it is vital that organisations know that they can access information online wherever they are and whenever they need it.


Understand, comply, protect

There is also a gap between the legislation and what it means for businesses and people working on the front line. TradeSimple aims to help with all these issues by equipping staff with the knowledge they need to help them understand their legal and civil obligations. It is vital that not only business owners, but all employees understand how regulation affects their role.

There are six courses in total which have been designed to give businesses a simple, cost-effective way to ensure they are compliant with retail legislation.
