Professional learning courses
Led by our ombudsmen, our courses focus on first tier complaints handling and best practice. We aim to help service providers understand the Legal Ombudsman’s investigation process and how to introduce different aspects of complaint handling and customer care. We do this using a combination of case studies, Q&A and presentations.
Details will appear on this page when new course dates are set but for further information about courses please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
These courses are free to attend and are available to professionals who work for a firm regulated under the Legal Services Act.
