What makes this course valuable?

There are statutory requirements to adhere to when operating as a Data Protection Officer (DPO).  This course enables the student to fulfil the legal requirement to be trained in the role of a Data Protection Officer.

On a more practical point, the course has been written by a highly experienced Data Protection Officer who has worked with hundreds of different organisations across many geographical and legislative boundaries.  His knowledge and expertise is engrained into the course notes and the video introductions that he provides.

In addition, the option to reach out for help and assistance post course completion is highly valuable and many people find that they struggle to understand the legal requirements and how these should be applied in a moden digital workplace.
