The Data Protection Act 2018 Distance Learning course outline

The DPA took effect in May 2018. It incorporates the GDPR into UK law and replaces the DPA 1998. As the GDPR is a European regulation, many are questioning what this means in relation to Brexit.

This course provides you with an overview of the differences between the GDPR and the DPA 2018, the Brexit draft regulations and how Brexit could impact data protection in the UK.

Why choose distance learning?

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 a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

Because this is a recorded session, you get just the undiluted core content, delivered in the most time-efficient manner, without any of the interruptions normally associated with a classroom course.
