Competition Law
eLearning Module (2020 Revision)

Competition Law both in the UK and in the EU promotes healthy market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies. Running a business legally and ethically is the responsibility of everyone who works in a business.

module content

Competition Law, also known as antitrust law, is set to prevent trusts and other monopolies, and covers conduct such as anti participation in competitive agreements, bribery or other ways of giving and receiving favourable treatments.

Breaches of Competition Law can result in fines of up to 10% of the company’s turnover. Individuals could have their assets confiscated, be investigated, prosecuted and sentenced to up to five years in prison. Companies can also be sued for damages, and their reputations ruined.

At Bolt, we designed a Competition Law eLearning Module to enable users to work compliantly with Competition Law. It informs them of the competition rules and practices that are prohibited by law and is suitable for learners who work in commercial environments, particularly retailers and suppliers.

Fully online and interactive, the competition law training course is available 24/7 on any device and with no time limits through Bolt state-of-the-art LMS. All our courses have assessments and a certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning course.
