Testimonials
Vast, in depth course, compacted down to a worthwhile experience.
DA, Ballyvesey Holdings Ltd

Great course and although I may not be a GDPR expert I know now how to practically work my way around GDPR and what is expected. I can build on the theory with the practice. Thank you.
JY, North Ayrshire Council

Act Nows' GDPR training course was excellent. The trainer, Philip Jones, was knowledgeable and made the sessions interesting. Workplace examples and discussions within the group really helped to embed what we were learning.
HM, Staffordshire County Council

This course is suited to both delegates with experience/awareness of Data Protection legislation and equally pitched at a level that can benefit those who are fairly new to the subject.
NM, Cuckoo Hall Academies Trust

This course is an extremely useful resource for being able to navigate and comply with GDPR and its surrounding legislation (including The Data Protection Act 2018) in the work environment. The supporting material is also detailed and very well put together.
