Course structure
The overall programme is divided into four parts: 1) basic module , 2) advanced module, and 3) optional certification workshop 4) the final test). The course duration is 5 days (4 days training + 1 day optional workshop in the morning and exam in the afternoon) in order to leave enough time for role-play and group exercises and discussions.

In case you wish to obtain the ‘EIPA professional certification in Data Protection’, you will have to pass a final test, scheduled in the afternoon session of the last day. The examination consists of a multiple-choice test, covering the subject matters dealt with in the plenary sessions in both modules – basic and advanced – followed by open questions.

To pass the exam you are strongly advised to study the materials that will be provided to you before and during the seminar.
You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course. Attendance in both modules is in principle required if you want to take part in the certification exam. In case you can demonstrate a proven working experience in the field of Data Protection, you can proceed straight to the Advanced Module.[1] You can visit our website for the Certification Policy at the following link www.eipa.eu/dataprotection.

    A great course which made the most out of the limited time of one week. There were great lecturers, a tight but nice schedule, enough time to socialize with other participants, all set in a beautiful town in the centre of Western Europe. The only weak part was the coffee.

  2. Rated 3 out of 5

    Pedro Miranda (verified owner)

    Overall the course is good, but in my opion to focused in the European Institutions and not in the private sector.

    The course was very well organised; all presenters were highly knowledgeable; presentations very effective and to the point. EIPA team were very supportive and friendly. One important aspect has been the possibility of networking with your colleagues from all around of Europe (EU institutions and the private sector). Social events/dinners were organised in very nice places. Indeed, I was surprised about the quality of the food! I definitely recommend this course to who needs a deep knowledge of the GDPR.

  8. Rated 4 out of 5

    Reesa Paatsi (verified owner)

    I would recommend this very good course to private sector lawyers with already some experience in the data protection field. You may attend the course without any previous knowledge, but to a more experienced lawyer the fantastic line of speakers gives an excellent opportunity to rise discussions in more complex matters and actually get answers that help to solve the matters. Additionally, I would say that, having a lot of experience with similar course programs, this one was very well organized and left a feeling that it was time well spent. I do hope that EIPA will offer additional expert level courses in the future.

    Rolf Espen Riktor (verified owner)

    Thanks for a great week with in-depth covering of all the aspects of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation + quite a lot of other related information. It was a tremendous lot of information to assimilate during one short week, but with the help of great tutors, in-depth discussions with fellow students, practical exercises and workshops, and comprehensive presentations, I feel that it was possible to assimilate the essence of the material and that I now have a good platform for further development of my skills in this area and thus beeing able to render my clients with useful services and advice:)

    A really great course with varied presenters from across the spectrum of Data Protection. The organisation of the course was excellent and the location in Maastricht was fantastic. I felt the course offered a lot of opportunities to network and to benefit from the experience and knowledge of fellow participants. Would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Data Protection.
