Join us as we return to the basics of the NCC and Australian Standards, presented by Michael Tyrrell. This is a great session for members at every stage from experienced to newly licensed to students!

Presentation Overview

It's important for all designers to have an understanding of the NCC and Australian Standards, whether you've owned your own business for 30 years, just got your licence or are just starting your studies.
