Our 1 day CPD accredited course is one of only three training providers recognised by the UK Caldicott Guardian Council ( as meeting the requirements of the Caldicott Guardian role.
This is a practical deep dive Caldicott Guardian training course where you will learn how the Caldicott role interacts with other roles (SIRO/DPO) within your own organisation and with external agencies or organisations. You will have the opportunity to work through DPIAs, Information Sharing Agreements and case-study scenarios that would require your input as the Caldicott Guardian and look at what information you may wish to report to your board or management team.
This course is the next level on from the basics and goes through more practical input to related processes. See our Caldicott Guardian training course that covers all you need to know if you want to covers the basics.

Caldicott Guardian Deep-dive Course Overview
