Learn at your own pace about how to become compliant with the GDPR

This distance learning course is a modular recording of our popular four-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner classroom course, which equips participants with the knowledge and operational skills to build, implement and manage a compliance programme under the GDPR.

The EU GDPR extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. The GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, and organisations that fail to comply face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

The benefits of the EU GDPR Practitioner Distance Learning course

Delivered by experts

Delivered by Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, this recorded training session is built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience advising organisations on achieving compliance with the GDPR 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 four days’ uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

Professional development

The course supports professional development, and those who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) 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 nine CPD/CPE credits.


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