Online training – supported by IAPP expert

Become GDPR ready through interactive, media-rich IAPP online training supported by experienced IAPP certified expert over video-link right from your home.

The self & trainer – paced online GDPR training program gives you the skills to envision, design and execute a comprehensive privacy management program within GDPR requirements through IAPP European Data Protection and Privacy Program Management courses.

These are essential skills as data protection authorities continue to levy more and steeper GDPR non-compliance fines on organizations of all sizes. As of July 2019, data protection authorities announced levied 360 million euros in fines against organizations ranging from real estate management firms to hotel chains to airlines. More than 300,000 cases and complaints are pending with authorities across the EU.

Companies need DPO candidates with the requisite knowledge and skills to minimize their exposure to such penalties. CIPP/E and CIPM are recommended as the most appropriate for aspiring DPOs, according to Eric Lachaud in “Should the DPO be certified?” in International Data Privacy Law, a journal published by Oxford University Press. These training programs are based on the body of knowledge for the ANSI/ISO-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and Certified Information Privacy Management (CIPM) certifications.

Online training is all that is listed on iapp here but extended with live online support by IAPP expert.

During your online classes experienced IAPP certified trainer (CIPP/E, CIPM, CIPT and FIP) starting with Kick-off (online) meeting will assist you to pass the exam and maximize outcome of training.


The CIPM training comprises 10 modules, which take a total of approximately 10 hours to complete (one hour per module). 

The CIPP/E training comprises 11 modules with a total audio run-time of approximately 2-3 hours; however, as this program is less linear and more interactive, you may wish to spend approximately an hour reviewing and exploring each module. 

Both trainings incorporate IAPP faculty presentations, interactive scenarios, and annotated quizzes to guide you through the complexities of the GDPR in an easy-to-follow, thorough format.

Each course offers individuals an opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to their respective certification exams. 

The trainings are not purely “test prep” classes, nor does taking training guarantee you’ll pass your exams. The trainings are appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge.

Give yourself the best chance of passing an exam by studying for 30 hours for each program, and reviewing the additional free resources found here.
