Learn at your own pace about GDPR

This distance learning course is a modular recording of our popular one-day EU GDPR Foundation classroom course, which provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations of any size. The GDPR Foundation qualification is also the prerequisite for the GDPR Practitioner course.

Expert advice

Delivered by Alan Calder, CEO and founder of IT Governance, this recorded training session is built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience advising organisations on compliance with data protection laws and related information security standards such as ISO 27001.


Distance learning lets you learn in your own time from the comfort of your own home or office. Stop and start the recording according to your schedule, repeat modules that you want to go over again or skip parts that cover familiar topics. If you have a busy schedule and cannot commit to a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

And, because this is a recorded session, you get just the undiluted core content, delivered in the most time-efficient manner, without any of the interruptions normally associated with a classroom course.

Professional development

The course supports professional development, and those who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) qualification by IBITGQ. It is also accredited by the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and satisfies the IISP Skills Framework requirements at Level 1: A1 – A7, B1 and C2. It also qualifies for five CPD/CPE credits.


Because distance learning courses are recorded WebEx sessions, they offer considerable savings over classroom and Live Online courses, which both feature live interaction with a trainer.

  2. Managers involved in or responsible for GDPR compliance.
