What our clients said about the course

The course has provided us with sound knowledge and direction in many areas over the last few years. She is dedicated in providing quality service in a timely manner. Our organisation has put a number of staff through this qualifications and we will be making the one day course mandatory for staff working with personal information.

The full course was five days and there was a lot to cover, I do feel the five days were needed to cover all the syllabus. I thoroughly enjoyed it and Liz could not have be more helpful and supportive. You think you know everything you need for GDPR compliance and then you go on this course and realise there is so much more. It has helped me enormously going forward.
