GDPR Practitioner Certificate: Another Set of Great Results

accomplishment, certificate, degree, successful, diploma, graduates, achievement, celebration

Act Now Training would like to congratulate the 10 delegates who have successfully completed our intensive one-week course leading to the GDPR Practitioner Certificate.

The course was delivered by Tim Turner in London in August 2017. All 10 delegates passed with 6 achieving a distinction.  This is an even better than our first set of results back in May.

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. 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.

The August course delegates represented a diverse range of organisations including councils, universities and government departments from the UK as well as the Isle of Man and the USA(see comment below and at the end of this post). They all enjoyed the course and gave us some very positive feedback about the course and the trainer:

“Thank you very much and this is great news. Close to distinction I was and I am pleased for being the only American in the class. I have a solid foundation on GDPR and look forward to future trainings that will lead to a role as a DPO” Domenic DiLullo, USA

“The course content was comprehensive and the course material have real continuing value back in day-to-day work. The trainer’s expertise and experience was obvious but he also created a really fun, discursive environment to learn in.”  KG, University of London

“I feel well equipped to provide relevant advice and guidance on the GDPR as a result of taking this course. It was well presented with good quality, practical course material and access to a resource lab for articles, webinars and exam practice, all of which proved invaluable.” JD, East Sussex County Council

“Undertaking the Act Now GDPR practitioner course has reinforced my understanding of Data Protection and Privacy.  The training provided by Tim has given me new strategies relating to implementing GDPR and privacy measures, achievable with much more confidence. I can now help my organisation understand, categorise and evidence risks associated with privacy and GDPR in more practical and robust way.” RS, Boston Council

“The course was excellent and well presented. I found Tim approachable and entertaining and he helped to make what could be a dry subject come to life. Pre attendance the admin was excellent and everything went ahead without any glitch at all. Act Now have responded to me really quickly and efficiently every time.” SH, Swansea University

Demand for these courses has been phenomenal as have the testimonials. Due to this demand we have now added some further dates! Book early to avoid disappointment. Course starting on 21st November in Manchester!
