The Secure Research Training Lab (SRTL) has been designed to meet the data analysis needs of professional certificate and academic courses that use approved administrative training datasets.

The SRTL is a MS Windows working environment which provides a central location for:

  • Access and analysis of training data files and working files
  • A range of software for student use
  • Secure storage and backup
  • Security standards that meet Data Steward and SRTL privacy and policy requirements.

Note: While the SRTL is accessible to both Windows and Mac users, once logged on, the working environment will be MS Windows.


The intention of these web pages is to guide course participants in setting up access to the SRTL and working within it.
