  1. Great quality course.


    Taught me exactly what needed to learn. Great quality course.

  2. Very good course


    This is actually a very good course regarding what is a complex subject which many people are still trying to understand. I considered myself reasonably knowledgeable on GDPR beforehand. However, working through this course certainly helped to clarify somethings which I didn’t understand fully. This is invaluable as a self-employed person who is obliged to keep himself up-to-date in terms of GDPR training in itself, as well as CPD. The only thing that might be a good addition to the course is hand-out to take away for future reference after completion of the final exam. Aside from that, this is well recommended.

  3. Updated & comprehensive


    With BREXIT round the corner, I got confused about GDPR regulations. As a content creator for a digital agency, we are always striving for updated knowledge about GDPR. The course was comprehensive. I would say it was good value for the money. The certificate was a bonus! “
