GDPR Course

Certificate of achievement in GDPR Level 3. Additional CPD Accredited Certificate with 50 CPD points available with no extra study.

Study the wide-reaching impact of GDPR, building the skills and knowledge needed to oversee all aspects of compliance. This exclusive Level 3 GDPR certificate is ideal for anyone looking to build a detailed understanding of the objectives and applications of GDPR for the modern organisation. With no deadlines or time restrictions imposed, our exclusive online courses are suitable for even the busiest lifestyles.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 rocked the business world to its core. From this date, organisations spanning all sectors in the European Union were immediately required to make significant data protection improvements. The result of which was massive process and policy alterations for millions of businesses, which were suddenly required to entirely rethink their approach to data collection, storage and usage. It was subsequently impossible to aggressively collect and hold onto data long-term, with the intention of repeatedly reaching out to clients and customers. Nor could any business in the EU collect information from clients and customers without their express consent and understanding of what was being collected, and how it would be used. Almost every business based in the EU now handles its customers’ data in a completely different way. GDPR was implemented for the greater good, but has nonetheless proved challenging and problematic for many thousands of businesses across the EU.

This intermediate Level 3 GDPR Course Certificate provides a detailed introduction to one of the most important data protection policy overhauls of our time. Build the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to oversee compliance in an organisational setting. Run your business more efficiently, climb the ranks with your current employer or get your entrepreneurship idea off to the strongest possible start.

Boost your resume with an endorsed Level 3 GDPRCourse Certificate and enjoy enhanced career prospects for life!
