Course on Certified Data Protection Practitioner (CDPP)


Next presentation is in Dublin on three days - Tue 24th, Wed 25th & Thu 26th October, with the course exam. on Thu 2nd November.

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).


The Irish Computer Society was the first organisation in Ireland to offer training in data protection, and the CDPP certification has proven to be a highly regarded award for Data Protection Practitioners since 2007


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:


  1. Have developed an understanding of the need for European Union and National Data Protection laws
  2. Understand how Data Protection laws work and how they meet international obligations
  3. Are able to apply Data Protection laws across a range of common situations


The syllabus is comprised of eight parts: 

  1. Background to the Laws
  2. Basic Definitions
  3. The Data Protection Principles
  4. The Data Subject’s Rights
  5. Regulation and Enforcement
  6. Overseas Transfer of Data
  7. Exemptions
  8. Practical Guidance and Conclusion


I have been presenting the CDPP course in collaboration with the ICS and ADPO (Association of Data Protection Officers) for over ten years. My next presentation is in Dublin on three days - Tue 24th, Wed 25th & Thu 26th October, with the course exam. on Thu 2nd November. The venue is New Horizons Ireland, 22-24 Strand St Great, Dublin 1, D01 W1W4, the excellent Computer & Business Training & Certification centre. The course fee is €2,450. That’s said, a 10% group discount is provided. So, if two or more people book and attend together, each of their fees would be reduced to €2,205. I would also note that the course fee includes the first year’s membership fee of the ADPO & ICS, should one wish to become a member.
