Frequently asked questions


Does Coursecheck publish all the feedback?

Who owns the feedback and customer contact data?

You own all the information supplied by your customers but Coursecheck has the right to publish the reviews on the site and may use the data in aggregated form for benchmarking purposes. We will never pass on customer contact information to third parties.

How do you ensure that all feedback is genuine?

a) You can't write a review without an event code. You generate these yourself and give them to your customers.

How are courses categorized on Coursecheck?

You can define your own course categories but Coursecheck also has its own subject area categorization to help people searching for courses.

What about other forms of training like virtual delivery and e-learning?

Coursecheck is designed to cater for all types of training with the questions asked, changing dynamically based on the type of training.

What if I get negative feedback?

Research shows that you shouldn't worry about a few negative reviews. People understand that occasionally things go wrong but the test of a good company is how you respond when that happens.

Does Coursecheck moderate the feedback that is posted?

No. But anyone can report an inappropriate review and we will remove any review that breaches our Terms of Usage policy.
