The Competition Law Online Toolkit

What is the Toolkit?

The Competition Law Online Toolkit is an award-winning e-learning programme. The Toolkit delivers effective antitrust compliance training to directors and employees of companies. All content is tailored to make it relevant to your day to day conduct. The course is written in straightforward business English and we have translated client courses into over 25 languages.

Why is it important?

The consequences of breaching competition law are severe, and include fines against the company of up to 10% of global turnover, fall in share price, damages claims, imprisonment of individuals and disqualification of directors. As part of an overall antitrust compliance programme, the Toolkit educates your workforce so that they understand how competition law applies to their day to day business activities and minimises the risk of infringement.

Course content

The Competition Law Online Toolkit introduces the fundamental concepts of antitrust/competition law in clear and concise business language to illustrate how the principles apply in practice and the consequences of breaching the rules. The Toolkit is interactive, using case studies and real examples which are tailored to ensure the programme is relevant to your organisation.


The objectives of this course are to:

  • demonstrate your organisation's commitment to complying with antitrust/competition law
  • explain how antitrust/competition law is applicable to your workforce's activities
  • highlight the potential penalties for breach of antitrust/competition law
  • enable employees to recognise and prevent anti-competitive practices
  • identify a typical competition authority's powers of investigation and what is typically involved during investigations
  • evaluate each user's understanding of the course content and identify further areas for development via a multiple choice exam, the results of which are monitored and reported to your organisation
  • minimise the risk for your organisation of non-compliance.
