Do I get a certificate?

YES, at the end of the training you will get a badge certifying that you participated in the DP4G training. This badge shows that you have dealt with the topic of data protection and that you are familiar with the basic principles of it.

How many people participate in each session ?

Each training session is live online and will include 5 to 10 participants maximum. We believe that interaction is key. That is why we prefer smaller training groups to ensure a participative course roll-out.

Do i need to have prior knowledge?

No, for neither of the two trainings prior knowledge is necessary. The fundamental training will provide you with the basic skills to apply responsible data management and protection. For the advanced training, it can be helpful to have prior knowledge in order to quickly understand critical contexts and the concepts we present. However, it is not indispensable and everybody is welcome!

What is the language of the training ?

We offer trainings in various languages on different days. At the moment, the trainings take place in English, French and Spanish.

to which time zone do the training dates refer?

The training dates you find on the calendar take place within CET time zone. However, we are flexible and can adapt to other time zones. If you have a preferred time and/or date, please write to contact@bouste.org and we can see our availability for additional trainings.
