Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate | 10 Feb 2022

Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate

The 1-day Data Protection (GDPR) Foundation Certificate course is for people who need a formal qualification to demonstrate a clear, concise and generic understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018, and is designed to support the practical knowledge often acquired in the workplace. It is suitable for the public, private and third sectors and will teach participants essential GDPR skills and sufficient knowledge to assist their organisation toward their data protection implementation and GDPR accountability requirement.

This Foundation Certificate is an internationally recognised qualification, endorsed by TQUK, which is regulated by Ofqual, a UK Government department.
