We've used this online course for ongoing and recurrent awareness of GDPR. We've used IT governance before for in person courses and the latest documentation so this was our first place to look. The course was easy to complete, looked modern and fresh and received well. On the one occasion we needed support for managing licenses, the team replied quickly by phone and solved the problem immediately.

As Head of Marketing, GDPR falls under my remit. I came across IT Governance when they were recommended by the GDPR consultant I was working with, as ensuring the staff were suitably trained was an essential element of the actions we were required to undertake as a business. The course itself was informative and the process of setting up the staff was easy. The support of the team with any questions I had was always prompt and friendly. I always feel it is a very personal service and would not hesitate to recommend them.

The content itself is of good quality and relevant. We had no issues getting our small team to complete the course. The overall UX of the platform could be a little better though, it's not immediately clear how the admin system works and how to apply the licences. Overall, good value for money.

Very easy and hassle-free ordering process and course access provided very quickly. The course itself is very well illustrated and easy for staff to understand. This is borne by the fact that my staff all are achieving positive test results. The content and course certainly meets with expectations and is a cost effective solution. I have no hesitation in recommending the course and this method of learning. From purchasing to the support we have received from IT Governance and GRC E-Learning, it has all been a very positive experience.

We've used this online GDPR/DPA2018 Course for our team and new starters since GDPR came in to force. Its a great way to ensure all staff are fully informed. The back end admin reporting features are very useful for compliance as well. I've have also done two face to face courses with IT Governance which were also very excellent.
