What Our Customers Say

Liz’s training style was practical, knowledgeable, supportive and engaging. She maintained our active participation throughout with regular exercises and opportunities for discussion. I also appreciated the quality and range of course materials and the post-course email support provided in the period leading up to the exam, supplying revision questions, model answers and answering any revision queries that came up. This course has not only provided me with a recognised qualification, it has also increased my confidence in supporting clients in this key aspect of information rights and governance.

Heather Jack


I am now responsible for data protection compliance in my organisation and feel that the course has given me the knowledge and confidence to be able to provide informed advice and recommendations to our Management Team. 

The week long course was very intense but also very rewarding and I am proud to say that I completed it.  Liz is an excellent trainer who takes the time to ensure you have grasped what is required and converts the hard to follow technical jargon into normal language.
