Why is it important? 

Today, a widely accepted truth in the business sector is that quick, empathic, and professional complaint handling is necessary for a successful market presence; constantly meeting this need is a requirement that costs all financial providers considerable human and other resources. We offer up-to-date practical skills that enable the professional handling of this task in an authority-approved way. The course presents the “authority face” of the consumer protection field of MNB; participants can learn about the supervisory aspects of complaint handling in more depth than the legislative text. It offers practical help in developing and maintaining consumer-friendly complaint handling processes and methods.
