Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate


Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate

The Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate is the course for people who need a formal qualification to demonstrate a clear, concise and generic understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018, in support of the practical knowledge often acquired in the workplace. It is suitable for the public, private and third sectors and will teach participants essential GDPR skills and sufficient knowledge to assist their organisation toward their data protection implementation and GDPR accountability requirement.

This Foundation Certificate is an internationally recognised qualification, endorsed by TQUK, which is regulated by Ofqual, a UK Government department.

As the course covers a lot of ground in a short time we recommend attendees who know nothing about data protection to attend our one-hour live, online Introduction to Data Protection and the GDPR.

Note: This course is delivered live, online, using the Zoom platform.  It will be delivered 9.30 - 12.30 and 13.30 - 16.30
