What's Included?

We’ll provide you with one of our highly skilled live trainers for the duration of the course. These experts currently work as DPOs or consultants, so can train you using real examples from their experience in the industry, ensuring the course is practical and reliable. 

We will send you a copy of the paperback BCS Data Protection Officer textbook, sent to your home address prior to the course. We also provide you with a 12 month BCS Associate membership. 

At DPAS we’re conscious of our environmental impact. We therefore provide you with all the relevant reading materials, online, prior to the course. This way, you can download and reuse these whenever you want.  

We don’t just deliver courses, and leave you to it. We provide you access to our online portal – which contains dozens of useful tools, templates, audits, policies, and more – all available for you to use within your organisation.  

Though our courses are virtual, you’ll still be fully involved by participating in breakout sessions, asking questions, and sharing your experiences. You can receive valuable advice from peers in the industry, network with other delegates, and make worthwhile connections.  

Our trainers are here to help you. We will provide you with mentor support for twelve months after the course, to assist with any queries or issues you may have.
