Certified Privacy Practitioner / European Union - Data Protection Officer (CPP/EU-DPO)

The Certified Privacy Practitioner /EU-DPO (CPP/EU-DPO) Award provides a journey that takes the learner from foundations to practitioner knowledge level in the EU GDPR and Data Protection by Design (DPbD), as a default across their organisation. 

You can book classroom training, or online eLearning at your own pace over 5 weeks using MOOC.

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) Award

There are six words in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that have triggered a paradigm shift in how privacy compliance is dealt with by EU organisations. The GDPR mandates that an organisation must practice 'data protection by design by default'. What this means is that every organisation must weave privacy-thinking into its DNA. hence, the paradigm shift has expanded privacy compliance out of the legal office into business operations. 

What is core to the CPP/EU-DPO award and training is these six words, and their profound impact to your organisation and yourself  in the role as a Data Protection Officer. 


The course is designed for any professional wanting to either extend their skill set into GDPR or have been tasked with GDPR compliance in their organisation. Certification is levelled at SCQF* Level 9 and rated as 10 credit points.
