When EXERCISE appears the participant is to complete these as individual exercises. The Trainer’s Guide contains answers or suggested answers for all questions and exercises listed in the Workbook (download from www.energy.gov.au/retailers/index.html). All answers should be written into the Workbook. The participant should still access the Information Manual when required, as it will assist in becoming familiar with how to use it, and what it contains.
