Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us and is governed by the same policy as the City of Seattle overall.  This policy can be read here.


Under Washington State Law (RCW Chapter 42.56, the Public Records Act) all records received or created by the City of Seattle are considered public records. Public records include data collected from registration, access and completion of this mandatory Tune-Up Specialist training as delivered through the https://www.seattletuneuptraining.com/ training system website.

The Public Records Act (PRA) requires that public records must be promptly disclosed by the City upon request unless the PRA or other statute specifically exempts records from disclosure. If a Building Tune-Up Specialist believes any of the records they are submitting to the City in compliance with the requirements of SMC 22.930 are exempt from disclosure under the PRA, they can request that the City provide notice prior to disclosure so the Building Tune-Up Specialist has an opportunity to pursue court action to prevent disclosure. To do so, the Building Tune-Up Specialist must very clearly and specifically identify the records and the exemption(s) that may apply. Only the specific records or portions of records properly identified will be withheld for the purpose of providing notification. All other information submitted to the City will be considered fully disclosable upon request. The City will not assert an exemption from disclosure on a Building Tune-Up Specialist’s behalf. If the City receives a public disclosure request for any records that a Building Tune-Up Specialist has properly and specifically identified, the City may notify them in writing of the request and postpone disclosure. While it is not a legal obligation, the City may allow up to ten business days after notification for the Building Tune-Up Specialist to obtain a court injunction to prevent the City from releasing the records (per RCW 42.56.540). If the Building Tune-Up Specialist fails to obtain a court order within the ten-day period, the City may release the information.
