Frequently Asked Questions
What does online training mean?
This means that you can complete the entire course completely online via your own computer at home or at the office. There are no classroom training days.
How long does the training take?
Our education can easily be combined with a (full-time) job and other activities. The entire online training can be completed in 1 or 2 full days. It is wise to also reserve some study time for learning the summary (28 pages) or looking through the GDPR. Of course you can do it faster or slower.
I find it difficult to estimate whether an online training is suitable for me.
Our online training course is suitable for almost everyone. It does require not specific prior education. However, it does require a certain amount of self-discipline. We keep the lessons short and challenging to keep you motivated.
Can I get help?
Yes, all our online training courses are supervised by a certified training manager in the field of privacy and security. All our experts have a masters degree. During your web based training you can contact them with questions. If desired, the expert monitors your progress.
I do not like reading a screen, do you also have a folder or book that I can use?
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 provide a CIPP/E summary (28 pages) of the textbook free of charge. You can print and read it, so you do not have to read the screen much.
Do I need any other study materials?
No, you do not need additional study materials. The online training environment is more then sufficient. It comes with a summary of the official textbook book (28 pages).
Are the practice exam questions identical to the actual exam?
Yes, they are. We think that’s very important. 45 standard multiple choice questions are included in the online learning environment. In addition, 4 scenarios with approximately 5 questions per scenario. That is a total of about 65 questions.
What are the costs of the training?
The total training costs are 300 euros. For that you get everything you need to prepare for the exam. You can pay with credit card and/or PayPal.
Is the course material up to date?
Yes, it is. The training is fully in line with the most recent IAPP changes.
Can you tell me about the course outline?
The course design follows the chapters of the book of knowlegde (the CIPP/E textbook or CIPP/US textbook). Each chapter starts with an 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 that count most heavily in the weighing are treated the most extensively.
Is there a timetable?
There is no timetable. You can follow the training whenever you want. In the past we worked with groups, but that offers no added value.
I want to read the textbook as well.. would you recommend reading the official book before or after the training?
I recommend reading the book after the training. You can then use it to go deeper into the curriculum. If you know the main lines of the book well, it is easier to place and remember the details. Everyone learns in his own way, but I would recommend the above to you.
Do you provide CIPP/e or CIPP/US training in languages other than English?
No, unfortunately we do not.
Are there specific requirements for my internet connection?
Although there is no minimum connection speed, the connection must be reasonably stable due to the continuous communication of your progress on the platform. In the event of technical problems, contact the e-coach. We host our training on the Thinkific platform.
