DPO Training Itinerary


 

The Spanish Agency for Data Protection, in its de facto Certification Scheme, establishes the following training itinerary:

·     60 hours

You must justify in the recognized Training Center:

-        a professional experience of at least three years in projects and / or activities and tasks related to the functions of the DPD in the field of data protection. See here "Conditions of justification of the prerequisites".

·     100 hours

You must justify in the recognized Training Center:

-        Justify a professional experience of at least two years in projects and / or activities and tasks related to the DPD's functions in terms of data protection. See here "Conditions of justification of the prerequisites".

·     180 hours

Without the possibility of providing any justification you must complete a complete training of all the subjects included in the program of the Scheme.

 

IMPORTANT

 

The training and experience acquired at national level and in the European Union will be valued. 

In case of not fulfilling the required experience, up to one year of experience can be validated through the justification of additional merits.

 

IMPORTANT.

NOTICE TO PROFESSIONALS WITH EXPERIENCE IN DATA PROTECTION: All the years that can be formally accredited will be taken into account.

An error of interpretation on the wording of the Certification Scheme of the AEPD-DPD v.1.1 led us to consider that the professional experience for the purposes of the justification was counted from May 25, 2016. This is not the case, there is no limitation on the date following the indications received by the AEPD.
