We’ve built a Privacy Management Program Training Certificate focused on helping the smallest of organizations move towards better privacy practice.
FIPA’s education program has always focused on ensuring people have access to the materials they need to make informed decisions about access and privacy rights. People working in public bodies and the private sector need to be supported so that they can succeed in meeting privacy compliance requirements that protect the personal information they collect from you.
With that in mind, we set out to build an original, comprehensive, accessible training program with supporting templates and documents that take you from start to finish on developing a privacy management program, complete with a certificate of completion.
It’s great if you’re just getting started on setting up your organization’s privacy management or seeking to improve your existing privacy management program. It may qualify for continuing professional education and development for many professionals including chartered professional accounts and is preapproved for continuing professional development through the BC Law Society.
To bring this learning to life and make it relevant and easy-to-understand, we’ll follow a small non-profit, “Support Capacity Limited”, or SCL on its journey from being non-compliant to compliant. By using a non-profit, we cover a few additional things that non-profits need to consider. The course material includes a valuable set of templates, supporting documents, links to resources and checklists which are essential to your Privacy Management Program.
