This training was scheduled due to a need for training to refresh knowledge and gain new skills around the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) and its recent amendments, as identified by the WDS Reference Group.
The training was held on 12th April 2016 in Hobart and on the 19th April 2016 in Launceston. It was presented by Meredith Barton, who is the Principal Solicitor with the Tenants’ Union of Tasmania, and has extensive experience in this area. The training aimed to improve understanding of the functions and context of the RTA and recent changes to the Act.
