Frequently Asked Questions - CIPP CIPM Certification and Training

Over the years we have collected a lot of different questions related to Certified Information Privacy Professional, Certified Information Privacy Manager, about the courses, the certifications and the training in general

You can easily combine our online CIPP and CIPM courses with your (full-time) job and other activities. One course can be completed in 1 or 2 full days. It is also wise to reserve some study time for learning the summary (CIPP/E 33 pages – CIPP/US 45 pages – CIPM 31 pages) and studying relevant laws. Of course, you can set the pace you desire.

The training costs $337 (including VAT); that is around €300, depending on the exchange rate.

With $337, you will get everything you need to prepare for the exam. You can pay with a credit card or via PayPal.

No, you do not need additional study materials. Our online training course is more than sufficient. It comes with a summary of the official textbook (CIPP/E 33 pages | CIPP/US 45 pages | CIPM 31 pages), three full practice exams and additional practice questions.

It means that you can complete the entire course online via your computer at home or the office. There are no classroom training days.

Our online training course is suitable for almost everyone. It does not require specific prior education. However, it does require a certain amount of self-discipline. We keep the lessons short and challenging to keep you motivated.

No paper teaching material is used in this online training. You can, however, order the official IAPP CIPP textbook. The chapters in our online training courses are based on this textbook. We’ll provide you with a CIPP/E summary (33 pages), CIPP/US summary (45 pages) or CIPM (31 pages) of the textbook free of charge. You can print and read it, so you won’t have to spend much time reading via the screen.

Yes, they are. We think that’s very important. All of our courses include three full practice exams (270 questions) and many more additional standard multiple-choice questions. For free CIPP/US sample exam questions please see: CIPP/US Practice Questions (Sample Questions)

Yes, it is. All of our training courses are fully in line with the most recent IAPP updates.

The course design follows the chapters of the book of knowledge (CIPM, CIPP/E or CIPP/US textbook). Each chapter starts with a video introduction (see below for an example). The video is followed by short stories and a quiz. Some parts of the curriculum are discussed in more detail in the online environment. The chapters with the highest weight (score) are treated extensively in our course.

There is no timetable. You can follow the training whenever you want.

We recommend reading the book after the online training. You can then use it to go deeper into the curriculum. If you know the main lines of the book, it will be easier to place and remember the details. Everyone learns in his own way, but I would recommend that you go through the training first.

That is very simple. Just click the button below and follow the instructions. You can pay with your credit card or via PayPal. After payment, you will have access to our online training environment for 12 months. If you desire to have access for a more extended period, just send us an email. You will have lifetime access.
