"I am pleased to be able to continue to participate in the review of this now established course designed specifically for Scottish FOI practitioners. Having reviewed the syllabus, the examination process and the results I am happy to continue to endorse Act Now's Practitioner Certificate in FOISA. The quality of the delegates, as evidenced by the high grades, augurs well for FOI in Scotland. In particular, I am pleased at Act Now's initiative to include practical elements in the course. This clearly provides direct benefits for public authorities, by improving the ability of practitioners to deal with complex information requests."
In drafting the course syllabus we have also consulted the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner and taken account of their comments and suggestions.
