Frequently Asked Questions


How can I have the College recognize me by my common name?

Please let us know your name preference and we will address you that way on all unofficial correspondence. To update your common name, log in to your account in the members section. However, for the Certificate of Qualification and Registration and Find a Teacher, we are required to address you by your full, given name.
