As health care education/consulting service provider, Advanced Health Education Center collects personally identifiable information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and facility employer information. Course registrations and independent study orders paid with a credit card also require credit card information. For general courses and independent study, full name, home address, phone number, e-mail address, and facility information is required so that the participant may be contacted should course information change. Fellowship and skills courses require copies of your state license/certification, CPR card, and any other health care license or certificate. Individual health care systems, the state and federal health care facilities, and clinical sites have many different requirements for clinical admission to their facility according to our contractual arrangements for clinical training. These include certain health information, drug testing, licensure, and/or certification verifications.
Occasionally, Advanced Health Education Center obtains information on potential customers from various direct mail list companies and the professional organizations. These lists are purchased according to the guidelines of the seller, and the accuracy of the list is the responsibility of the seller of the list. Questions regarding inclusion on various lists may be directed to the AHEC marketing staff, which will correct in-house information and refer you to the appropriate company for further details.
