GDPR Practitioner Certificate
Course Structure
Formerly the Data Protection Practitioner Certificate, this course will teach you everything you need to know to be a successful Data Protection Officer as required by the GDPR. The course takes place over four days (one day per week) and involves lectures, discussion and practical exercises. This is followed by a written assessment on day 5. Candidates are then required to complete a project (in their own time) to achieve the certificate.
"GDPR is the biggest change to Data Protection in a generation. I have looked at every aspect of this revised course to equip Data Protection Officers with the knowledge they need to tackle GDPR in a practical way."
Tim Turner, Course Leader
