Certified GDPR Training launched in Limerick – book your place today!

Many organisations are struggling to fill a skills gap created by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and need staff with knowledge of the Regulation. One way to fill this gap is to build on the knowledge of existing staff through training.

IT Governance Europe runs two levels of GDPR training courses across Ireland to train staff on the Regulation, giving them the knowledge required to manage a GDPR compliance project. The courses are also available Live Online or as distance learning for those who can’t get to a classroom.
