Good course, an enabler to the exam. Crucial that you have a good grasp of GDPR before attempting though! Exam not as daunting as it first appeared.

This was the culmination of the GDPR training path which started with Foundation and Practitioner courses. Throughout the instructors have been knowledgeable and highly engaging. It's not easy, you will need to put the work in, but very rewarding!
