Certified Data Protection Practitioner (CDPP)Separately

 certified data protection training courses dublin


Protection of personal data by healthcare organisations is critically important. For example, failing to meet the GDPR accuracy principle in relation to patient data is not only an infringement of data protection law. Far more importantly, it could have a serious impact on the health and life of affected patients.


Likewise, a local authority’s example of possibly making an error in the GDPR integrity and confidentiality principle, resulting in the loss of planning applicants’ documents, could cause a difficult delay in their efforts to set up new homes. This course will discuss such topics within the frameworks outlined in the relevant EU and National Data protection Laws.


Organisations can be confident that their policies and procedures are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other applicable data protection legislation by sending key staff on the ICS/ADPO Certified Data Protection Programme (CDPP).


Who should attend:


CDPP is ideally suited to anyone who fulfils a role involving significant personal data processing in an organisation, across IT, administration, finance, project management, human resources, sales & marketing, healthcare customer support, etc in both public and private sectors.


This three-day course provides a detailed overview and analysis of data protection principles, the GDPR obligations, and relevant roles in an organisation, rooted in practical application. The course places an emphasis on relatable, real-world examples to back up the course content.


Please note, the CDPP certification assists with the necessary professional qualifications required for entry to the DCU Graduate Certificate course in Data Protection .


The aim of the CDPP course is to develop and certify candidates who have successfully completed training and to identify that they:

  • Have developed an understanding of the need for European Union and National Data Protection laws.
  • Understand how Data Protection laws work and how they meet international obligations.
  • Application of Data Protection laws across a range of common situations.


The syllabus is comprised of eight parts:

  • Background to the Laws
  • Basic Definitions
  • The Data Protection Principles
  • The Data Subject’s Rights
  • Regulation and Enforcement
  • Overseas Transfer of Data
  • Exemptions
  • Practical Guidance and Conclusion


On completion of the training course, the Training Provider will schedule the examination which must be passed to obtain the CDPP certification. The CDPP certification is renewable annually, on verification of the holder’s relevant CPD in the topic. Included in your CDPP course fee is your first-year membership of the Association of Data Protection Officers and/or the Irish Computer Society.
