Course details:


Our CPD Accredited Data Protection Officer course is an industry recognised course which has been designed by DPO's with other DPO's in mind. We pass on our skills and experience to help you undertake your role as an independent, qualified and competent DPO. 


The course is perfect for those who are already DPOs, aspire to be DPOs, or are Data Protection Managers or consultants working in the industry. The course is designed using our extensive knowledge of GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 and other relevant data protection legislation. We combine our theoretical knowledge with our operating experience as DPOs in public, private and third sectors.


The course is not all “chalk and talk” delivered by DPOs. Instead we use case studies from our own experience, interactive learning, tools we have developed, group sessions and competence-based learning to ensure that DPOs are confident and supported to go back into their organisation and deliver GDPR.


You leave with an action plan for your role as DPO and the free use of our tools and your own personal DPO mentor.  We believe in a sustainable skills transfer. 


By attending and passing this course you will have a recognised qualification in the role of a Data Protection Officer which has been accredited by the CPD Certification Service. The course will enhance your knowledge of Data Protection Officers, their roles and responsibilities and provide delegates with the opportunity to network with other DPOs and share best practices.
