Is this a GDPR Foundation Course? A number of organisations offer a one-day GDPR Foundation course. However, these courses are designed simply to get candidates through an examination at the conclusion of the day. Frequently over 130 slides are presented in a 5 hour session, with no time for proper discussion and understanding.
We’ve taken the view that such training does not lead to a real understanding of the GDPR, and is not a good use of your time and money.
This course covers similar ground, but in more depth and with more time for interaction and discussion around the topics, leading to enhanced understanding and real benefit.
