With RG 271 Internal dispute resolution coming into effect on 5 October 2021, ASIC requires staff who deal with complaints to have the knowledge, skills and attributes to effectively perform their roles. ASFA’s brand-new RG 271 Member-Focused Complaints Handling program, delivered in conjunction with the industry’s most regarded and respected complaints specialists, Jocelyn Furlan (former Chair of the SCT) and Pam McAlister (AFCA), makes it easy to meet your RG 271 obligations and get exactly the right technical and skills-based training for you or your staff to fairly and effectively handle member complaints.
RG 271 Member-Focused Complaints Handling program is delivered in a blended format featuring an interactive online e-Learning module covering the theory and legislative requirements of RG 271, together with an engaging 2-hour workshop that ‘goes beyond the technical’ to provide practical guidance and tips, including active listening and effective communication, tips for identifying vulnerable complainants and dealing with conflict, as well as opportunities to practice the learnings in small break out groups. A final online quiz confirms staff understanding of the learnings from the program.
