About the course


This is a course covering the Data Protection Act 2018 which complements the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A good understanding of the GDPR is an essential pre-requisite for attending this course. If you do not have this, you may wish to attend our GDPR course first:


The following two articles will also assist you in understanding what our DPA 2018 course will cover:

The Data Protection Act 2018 - A Summary
GDPR and the DP Bill - Myths and Misunderstandings


Very useful to go through the elements of the DPA 2018 separately from the GDPR. Having also completed the GDPR Practitioner certificate, I would highly recommend this as a follow up for anyone having to use any of the DPA Schedules!

Good course with lots of relevant discussion amongst delegates. Trainer very knowledgeable and made a dry subject interesting.

Another ACT NOW training session that cut through the DPA mire and leaves you with a clear understanding of what you need to do.

The Data Protection Act 2018 day provided me with a comprehensive breakdown of the content of the Act and how it integrates with the GDPR. It covered a lot of information without feeling too mindboggling and it was great to be able to ask questions and discuss real life issues that came to mind as we galloped through the legislation. At no point did I feel overwhelmed but I do feel very informed. Thanks for such a useful day (and for the sweets at the venue which helped with the after dinner slump)
