Course description

First launched in 1999, the BCS (formerly ISEB) Practitioner Certificate in Personal Data Protection is the leading independent professional workplace qualification for individuals with privacy or data protection responsibilities. Over the years, the BCS has continued to evolve the practitioner certificate to keep pace with the advances in UK and EU legislation. In doing so, the Practitioner Certificate has become the most trusted data protection training programme in the UK and is often listed by employers as a required qualification. The current version of the BCS syllabus (v9.0) covers the EU GDPR, UK Data Protection Act 2018, and PECR while taking into account recent legislative changes and the period of transition, which will last until the end of 2020. This latest revision will ensure the Practitioner Certificate will continue to serve as the benchmark for many years to come.

The BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection confirms the ability of award holders to fulfil the mandatory appointed role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) or to lead GDPR compliance within their organisation, department or group.

This BCS accredited GDPR training course requires participants to develop a deep understanding of both UK and EU data protection laws and how to apply them in a workplace environment. Rather than focus on the rigid mechanics of regulation, the course places privacy in the context of human rights and promotes good practice within organisations.

The course concentrates on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with its 10 chapters, 99 articles, and 173 recitals. It examines the complexity of the interactions between the GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018, including its derogations and exemptions, along with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).
