Training Providers

The IDPA adds a brand to your business that’s perceived around the world as an authoritative and independent assurance of quality.

By becoming an Approved Training Provider (APT), you gain the ability to offer our CPD Certified Training courses which lead to Professional qualifications specific to the field of Data Protection. No other organization in the EMEA region offers as in depth an Implementation course as ours. Similarly, no organisation in EMEA offers a Privacy related Auditor’s course. All of our Courses carry the relevant CPD accreditation, permitting your professional client’s the ability to meet the ongoing education requirements of their existing Certifications.

All of our Courses are developed in line with our Certification Body status (ISO 17024). Approval from the IDPA is a sure sign of your ability to deliver the appropriate syllabus using competent tutors and comprehensive materials in an effective learning environment. Our Courses are Accredited by the National Accreditation Service, based in Estonia.

As an Accredited organization, we are proud to uphold a minimum set of standards for all of our ATP’s and, as such, Training providers must be approved by us to deliver our Training courses
