Project Description

Course Overview

The Certificate in Managing Data Protection Compliance is made of two units:

Data Protection Compliance — covers the fundamental concepts of data protection law including key definitions and the data protection principles, and looks at basic measures organisations can take to comply with relevant parts of the legislation.

Applying Data Protection Law in Practice — builds on the unit above to develop knowledge about how to apply the legal requirements in a practical setting. This covers a range of complex scenarios and introduces good practice set out in relevant codes of practice, as well as how the use of information governance tools can facilitate compliance.

Course Delivery Options

The Virtual course takes place over three weeks: with two days per week each week and one day per week and one day in the third week. The classroom based course has 3 days virtual learning and 2 days in a classroom.

The Data Protection Certificate involves teaching virtually in a live training environment, or a classroom, group discussions and practical exercises. Both courses are followed by a classroom or online exam.

This course is delivered by TKM Consulting who are an approved training centre.

What our clients said about the course

The full course was five days and there was a lot to cover, I do feel the five days were needed to cover all the syllabus. I thoroughly enjoyed it and Liz could not have be more helpful and supportive. You think you know everything you need for GDPR compliance and then you go on this course and realise there is so much more. It has helped me enormously going forward.
