The data that is shared with us by your training provider includes your name, your email address, the name of your tutor, the course in which you are registered, the date of your course and the results of final assessments that you have completed. 

You are assigned a student identification number (UDN) when you register for a CQI or IRCA certified course. We retain your name, course and exam details, and this student identification number in perpetuity, so that we can verify, upon request, that you completed the course for which you have registered. 

We use your name, email address and course information to send you a personalized email following the conclusion of your course, in which we ask you to give us feedback on your experience with the course, your tutor and the training provider.
