Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We do not currently enable comments in either the main website or online course site.
We do not currently allow media upload on the main website or online course site.
We do not currently provide contact forms on the main website.
The course site does collect information via forms to verify course content mastery via a post-course test, an online survey about course experience, and certification information that we are required to maintain in case of audit.
If you have an account and you log in to the course site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
We use several plugins on the main site and course website which may also set cookies to enable them to function correctly. You can view our cookies here.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use Google Analytics to determine who is using our site and how they reach us. It contains information such as how many people visit the site each month, what percentage of people access the site via mobile browser, and what percentage of users find us via Facebook, email, or from a link on another site. This helps us optimize your browsing experience. For example, it allows us to ensure that our site is usable for the most commonly used types of smartphones or tablets. Here is a summary of how Google uses analytics information.
