Act Now Training Limited is pleased to announce the successful completion of its first two courses leading to the GDPR Practitioner Certificate.
Congratulations to all 19 delegates who successfully completed the course in London and Manchester in May 2017 (with 5 achieving a distinction). They represented a diverse range of organisations including British Airways, insurance companies, councils, universities and housing associations. All successful delegates will now be able to put the letters “GDPR.Cert” after their name.
Steve Wood, Head of International Strategy and Intelligence, at the Information Commissioner’s Office said:
“Congratulations to all the successful candidates on the Act Now GDPR Certificate. As we near 25th May 2018, it is good to know that organisations are taking steps to ensure they have staff with the knowledge and skills to take up the GDPR implementation challenge”
The GDPR Practitioner Certificate is aimed at those undertaking the role of Data Protection Officer under GDPR whether in the public or the private sector.
This course will teach delegates essential GDPR skills and knowledge. It builds on the success of the Act Now Data Protection Practitioner Certificate, which it replaces, by focussing on GDPR. The course takes place over four days (one day per week) and involves lectures, assessments and exercises. This is followed by a written assessment. Candidates are then required to complete a practical project (in their own time) to achieve the certificate.
Feedback from delegates has been very positive:
An excellent course presented with flair that explained the transition from DP Act to EU-GDPR with emphasis on both the law and real world examples. PG, Somerset County Council
Excellent course. Tim was extremely knowledgeable and helped set out clearly what needs to be done to prepare for the GDPR. ES, Together Trust
I enjoyed every minute of this course. CA, Nursing and Midwifery Council
A really enjoyable and practical course. Informative in terms of learning and it also helped to put into context my own reading and work around GDPR. Tim is a great presenter and the course was delivered at a good pace. Questions and discussions raised by other delegates were interesting and informative too. SB, The Riverside Group Limited
Data Protection is made enjoyable and is brought to life by the quality of the trainer who has obviously experienced it in the live environment and who absolutely loves the subject. AH, SCLL
The course tutor was Tim Tuner who shared his vast experience gained through years of helping organisations comply with their DP obligations. This, together with a comprehensive set of course materials and guidance notes, meant that delegates were not only in a position to pass the course assessment but to learn valuable DPO skills which they will be able to apply in their workplaces for years to come.
“I have really enjoyed teaching these delegates. Their enthusiasm and ability to challenge themselves bodes well for the future of GDPR compliance in the UK. I am on a mission to continuously improve this course so that it becomes the premier GDPR qualification.”
This course is filling up fast. Five out of the next seven courses are fully booked. We are adding more dates. Please check our website for a course near you.
