Our BAS agents, are highly respected within their field. It is for this reason that we require all new BAS Agent members to complete this program within 6 months, to ensure they are aware and compliant with the rules, regulations, standards, by-laws, and pronouncements that apply to them in their practices. Members can gain up to 18 CPD hours upon completion of this program.
