A complaint is when a customer tells us that they are not happy with something that we have done or not done, and we have not put things right. It should be noted that in order to say our training has failed, you will be asked to demonstrate that you have taken the actions recommended.
WHO IS A CUSTOMER?
A customer is anyone who contacts YourEVA to request a service or is in receipt of a paid course or programme.
HOW CAN A COMPLAINT BE MADE?
Any customer wishing to make a complaint can do so, by phone, e-mail, website or letter.
