GDPR Essentials:

As GDPR is now fully underway, it is more important than ever that everyone within the Public Sector has a strong understanding of what these regulations require. PAI’s three-day course in GDPR essentials introduces attendees to the core concepts, principles and key requirements of GDPR. We have decided to run our course over a three-day period to allow for a more interactive approach, providing time for group exercises, discussion of case studies and the development of practical skills.

Level 2: GDPR Advanced

GDPR & the Data Protection Directive For Law Enforcement Bodies:  

While having an understanding of GDPR is an essential tool for all professionals, it is particularly important for Law Enforcement Bodies. As we all know, non-compliance with GDPR is penalised, meaning Law Enforcement Bodies need to be updated with these rules and regulations. Samples of organisations that this course is suitable for include:

  • An Garda Siochana
  • The Defence Forces
  • Revenue Commissioners (investigations section)
  • Department of Social Protection (Investigations section)
  • Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
  • Local Authorities (litter wardens, planning enforcement etc.)
  • Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement
  • The Data Protection Commission

Certificate in Policy Development, Legislative Drafting and Delivery:

Policy Development is an essential Public Sector Skill. This course provided participants with knowledge in the areas of policy development, legislative drafting and legislative processing. Most importantly delegates gained skills to draw up effective and accessible legislation.
