    Great introduction course for board level staff/trustees. The PDFs are a great tool to help refresh knowledge at a later date.

    I thought the course was clear and concise and I liked the way it was broken up with the videos. Use of the tests is a good idea as it will make people engage not just read.

  • Sam Roberts January 9, 2018

    Clear and informative course, delivered to a high standard. 4 clear modules made the learning easily digestable and allowed time for re-evaluation. I feel I have gained a significant amount of knowledge about the GDPR, in a short period of time, and would feel confident in taking steps to ensure my organisation in compliant using some of the information obtained within the course.
