Data protection act (DPA)

Data Protection Act E-learning Course Screenshot


The Data Protection Act course is designed to make employees aware of why we have a Data Protection Act, what it is and how it relates to the work they do. It provides a rounded understanding of the 1998 Data Protection Act, its revised principles and extended scope. This ensures that daily work routines fulfil the requirements of the Act, thus promoting good working practice and safeguarding the rights of citizens.

The questions your staff face will be drawn from a bank of available questions meaning that staff cannot be coached or ‘learn’ how to pass.


On May 25 2018 the DPA will be replaced by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). These regulations have been designed to give each of us more control over how our data is shared and used by companies. If your business handles customer data, it’s vital that your staff understand their obligations under GDPR.

If you purchase this DPA course you will get free access to the new GDPR module as well as our upcoming GDPR course, which will be available from April 2018.
