Data protection training for your staff is a vital element of compliance with data protection legislation and therefore should be part of any preparations for the GDPR.
Tkm delivers quality data protection training services across the UK and provides a range of solutions, offering both formal qualifications and customised courses. Scheduled dates are available here and any of our courses can be booked by contacting us.
Data Protection Training – Qualifications
Tkm offers formal, approved qualifications in UK data protection and associated legislation. These courses are approved, quality assured and certificated by the SQA, one of the UK’s qualifications regulators.
Three courses are available and focus on practical implementation:
- A one day certificate course. This is suitable for raising awareness about the GDPR. It may also be useful for those who have some data protection responsibilities. On successful completion, attendees will be awarded a Certificate in Data Protection Compliance
- A 5 day course for practitioners with management responsibilities. This is suitable for those responsible for managing data protection compliance and covers the practical implementation of the GDPR. It may also be a suitable qualification for those designated as Data Protection Officers. There are two options available for those attending the 5 day course. The first is to achieve the Certificate in Managing Data Protection Compliance by successfully completing the course and examinations. The second is to go on to successfully complete a work-based project and achieve the Diploma in Managing Data Protection Compliance.
- BCS Foundation Certificate in Data Protection – suitable for anyone who needs to understand data protection law and the GDPR.
- BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection – designed for candidates with some existing data protection responsibilities, wishing to gain a broader understanding of current laws, including the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
Tkm is highly experienced in the delivery of training, information governance, and the practical application of data protection laws. All courses and training will offer a very practical insight into compliance with the GDPR. The courses will provide you with tools and resources that you can take away and implement within your own organisations.
