Do your team know their obligations if they get asked by a client or employee for all of the information you hold on them? What should they do? Where should they start? How do they comply to the GDPR? What exemptions to use? 

Let us help with a SAR training day at your offices or at our training sites across the UK delivered by our Chief DPO, Nigel Gooding.

DPAS are aware that managing the process of subject access requests (SAR’s) can be overwhelming and challenging for organisations. Dependant on the nature of your organisation you can be inundated with requests from; customers, clients, employees, complaints and so many more.


Data Protection Officers are expected to know the legal requirements within the legislation for responding and managing SAR’s, however if you are processing masses of requests it can be hard to keep up to. DPAS now offer an industry-recognised course that not only covers the most current requirements within the GDPR and Data Protection legislations, but also provide useful guidance on how to manage SAR’s processing in a practical and ‘hands-on’ manner.

The added value to the training is that you acquire knowledge and confidence beyond any other training you have had to apply GDPR Article 15. The course will give you the confidence to apply the right GDPR, Data Protection Act exemptions, case law and guidance to your SARs, which in turn will reduce your workload, the time to delivery and your search costs by delivering a new reasonable and proportionate approach to processing SARs.  Thus providing a tangible return on investment in attending the course.


Course Content:


Our one-day SAR’s course will cover all of the relevant legislation from the GDPR and Data Protection acts as well as;

This session will also give delegates the opportunity to work on case study subject access requests with the guidance of our trainer. By doing this they will have the practical knowledge on how to manage situations and implement processes within their organisation.




The course takes around 6 hours to complete, but we remain flexible on timing as often we will discuss practical applications to develop understanding. The course includes a 1-hour exam containing 20 multiple choice questions and a 65% pass mark, successful completion of the exam is awarded the SAR Processing Certificate, accredited by the CDP Certification Service.
