Storage of your Information

Your booking information will only be stored for the period required for you to complete your course.

We are required by the RYA to keep SRC exam papers for 5 years.

On successful completion of a course we will keep a record of your name, certificate number and date of completion for up to 10 years.   This is in order that we could re-issue a lost or damaged certificate.
