GDPR Awareness - Target Audience

GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, is a piece of legislation created by the European Parliament in April 2016 that came into effect on the 25 May 2018. It gives those who are resident in, or citizens of, the European Union the right to greater control over their personal information and places strict requirements on businesses to who wish to store or process personal data.

Even though the UK has left the European Union, the principles outlined in the General Data Protection Regulation must still be followed when processing the personal data of UK and EU residents because they are enshrined in UK law by the Data Protection Act 2018. This legislation is enforced by the Information Commissioner's Office, a supervisory authority based in the UK whose role is to make sure that the information an individual (or data subject) provides to an organisation is processed correctly and stored securely, and impose fines on those that do not comply.

Successful candidates will receive a ConCest Certificate and 1 CPD Credit.

This course certificate has no expiry date because there is no formally recognised period of validity for any health and safety training or this type of course. The HSE recommends refresher training is carried out whenever it is felt necessary. Safety registration bodies such as CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine & SMAS and other members of the SSiP scheme recommend most re-training is done every 3 years. We would recommend refreshing knowledge as and when legislation or guidance changes applicable to these regulations.

All of our courses, systems and services have been registered to the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 quality standard. Quality Management Systems Ltd (QMS) made this prestigious award to Commodious in January 2018. This gives assurance that the training and assessment was completed with a quality registered organisation.

GDPR Awareness - Course Overview


Any organisation that handles personal data of EU citizens or residents needs to make sure that they understand the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, and comply with it. Failure to do so can lead to fines which, in the case of a data breach, can reach a maximum of £18 million or 4% of a business’ annual turnover, whichever is greater.

To ensure GDPR compliance, you must understand a range of topics such as the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation, what the regulation considers as 'personal data,' the 7 principles of GDPR and the role of a data protection officer.

This GDPR online training course covers the basics mentioned above as well as exploring additional key considerations such as the GDPR privacy rights you need to uphold as a data controller and the definition of a 'lawful basis.' It is aimed at anyone who processes personal data, including SME business owners, administrative staff and larger corporations, and will provide you with an understanding of the GDPR that will allow you and your business to take the steps required to comply with the regulation.

The General Data Protection Regulation places several complex requirements on organisations regarding how they store and handle personal data, including requiring them to have consent and a lawful basis to process data, have a dedicated data protection officer and store any information they hold securely.

This GDPR Awareness training course will help individuals and organisations to understand and follow these requirements, allowing them to meet their legal obligations and avoid the penalties that come with non-compliance. It will provide candidates with an awareness of the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations and the privacy rights of individuals outlined in the GDPR.

After completing this course, candidates will:

  • Understand the aim and scope of the General Data Protection Regulation and data protection law.
  • Be aware of the penalties for breaching the GDPR and the public authorities that enforce them.
  • Be aware of the need for GDPR compliance.
  • Understand the data privacy rights under the GDPR.
  • Know the principles of data protection and information security.
  • Be aware of what is required under the GDPR.


It takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete the course in full. This can be spread out over multiple sessions or completed in a single session. There is no time limit for completion.


All candidates must complete a multiple choice assessment after working through the training material. The candidate will be asked 16 multiple choice questions, randomly chosen from a larger question pool, and need to answer a minimum of 12 correctly to pass. Candidates will be given instant feedback after completing the assessment stating whether they have passed or failed. The assessment can be re-taken as many times as is required to pass at no additional cost.
