Practitioner Certificate in FOISA
A practical qualification for those that work with Freedom of Information and the Environmental Information Regulations in Scotland.

The Act Now Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information (Scotland) is designed for FOISA practitioners in the public sector as well as solicitors, auditors and others with a role dealing with FOISA and EI(S)R requests, advising on information or records management issues, and anyone else who has responsibility for managing and dealing with public sector information requests.

"Excellent course. Well designed, presented and delivered. Must for anyone involved with FOISA." AG, Scottish Prison Service

The course takes place over four days (normally one day per week) and involves lectures, discussion and practical exercises. This is followed by an online multiple choice test and a project (both to be completed within 20 working days) to achieve the certificate.

"Excellent course, well structured and delivered."
JW, St Andrews University

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate that they possess a good knowledge of Freedom of Information and other information laws as they apply in Scotland, as well as an understanding of the practical implications for their organisation.
