The European Data Protection training was recently updated to align content with changes to the body of knowledge for the CIPP/E exam.

This training now includes a supplemental module titled “How to Prepare for Certification,” which highlights how to get the most out of your training and build a successful exam study plan.


The IAPP’s European Data Protection training provides an in-depth review of the GDPR and critical data protection concepts.

Chock-full of rich imagery, video and text, the training is an engaging, self-paced course. It incorporates IAPP faculty video aclips, engaging interactions and review questions to guide you through European data protection law and practice in a thorough, easy-to-follow format.

The training comprises 11 modules with an approximate run time of 11 hours (about one hour per module).

The course offers learners an opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the CIPP/E exam. It is not purely a “test prep” course, nor does taking the training guarantee you will pass your exam.

It is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify and those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge.

The IAPP updates online trainings 1-2 times a year to ensure any revisions to the certification Body of Knowledge are adequately addressed. These updates are automatically integrated into your product and do not require an additional purchase.

Approximately every 3-5 years—or when a major new privacy regulation or development has occurred—an online training will be overhauled and re-released. Users will need to purchase the newest version of the training to access the most current content. If you have purchased a training in the six months prior to a new version release, you will receive the new version free of charge. The IAPP cannot guarantee indefinite access to online trainings, especially if a previous version of a training that has since been overhauled can no longer be maintained from a technical perspective (for example, trainings created prior to 2016 using now-retired Flash Player functionality).
