The amended Section 163 of the National Credit Act (34 of 2005) (NCA) reads as follows:
”A Credit Provider, Debt Counsellor or Payment Distributing Agent must ensure that its employees or agents are trained in respect of the matters to which this Act applies. Credit Providers, Debt Counsellors and Payment Distributing Agents must ensure that its EMPLOYEES and AGENTS are trained to such an extent that they can contribute to the purpose of this Act”
To “bridge the gap” between where we are now and what we might see in the future, we have developed this one day intervention course in an interactive workshop format. We urge you to send your staff on this intervention in order to satisfy the minimum requirement as prescribed in sec 163(1B) of the NCA.
Should you use ANY AGENT, such as Debt Collection Agents, to help you as Credit Provider, please ensure that they attend the same intervention and forward their attendance certificates to you - remember: you are vicariously liable for the actions of your agents.
