Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner Training Course
Learn how to be GDPR compliant
The four-day Certified EU GDPR Practitioner course builds on the GDPR Foundation qualification to equip participants with the knowledge and operational skills to build, implement and manage a compliance programme under the GDPR.
The course focuses on the application of the Regulation, how the data protection principles work in practice, the policies and procedures necessary, and practical guidance on how to implement an effective privacy and information security compliance programme. This includes using:
- A real-life case study to demonstrate best practices and methodologies;
- A data protection impact assessment (DPIA) tool to help assess and address privacy risks; and
- A GDPR compliance gap assessment tool to help prepare a compliance plan.
- The tools are included free of charge for all participants to use in the workplace.
Accredited GDPR training and certification
Course certification will help individuals to demonstrate competency in data protection compliance and the required knowledge to fulfil the role of a DPO under the GDPR.
Participants who pass the course exam are awarded the ISO 17024-certificated EU GDPR P qualification by IBITGQ. It is also accredited by the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and satisfies the IISP Skills Framework requirements at Level 1: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, B2 and C3.
