What our clients say about us

    The Foundation Certificate is a great way to cement a base knowledge, plus I found it useful to update some details and understand what changes mat be on the horizon. LK, Isle of Man

    The course was really interesting, I have been in the profession for many years but still found a lot of new content throughout the course that built upon my existing knowledge but also explained some topics much more in depth which was very engaging. The webinars were very useful and gave a good insight into the topics as well as giving a good opportunity to ask any questions and engage with other students and tutors. The course has certainly expanded my knowledge and interest in Information Governance and is very relevant to my work, so I will be taking the information I have gained on this certificate further to enhance my career further. RD, Ministry of Defence
