BC 5701 Implementation professional

In this intensive 6-day BC 5701 Implementation Professional course, you will gain knowledge and understand the success criteria of the GDPR Certification Standard and Criteria BC 5701:2023, and practice key skills to properly apply the implementation. The aim is for you to learn to apply the BC 5701 effectively in different organizational contexts and successfully prepare organizations for their certification.

Prior knowledge

For this programme, we assume knowledge and experience of project management, and organizational knowledge and insight at the level of University of applied sciences (HBO). If you do not have this experience, then the course in the ‘applied education‘ variant is probably a better choice.

Target group

This course is designed for professionals who want to guide organizations in successfully implementing the GDPR certification standard BC 5701. You already have the necessary experience in guiding organizations towards their GDPR compliance and may have been involved in implementing a framework of standards before. The GDPR holds few surprises for you. You probably also have knowledge of or affinity with the field of information security.

  • Consultants;
  • Internal or external project managers who want to successfully guide GDPR certification standard and criteria BC 5701:2023 implementations;
  • Process or product owners who wish to have their processing operations certified;
  • DPOs.

Staying up-to-date

If you have participated in a BC 5701 training course, you will be invited to the annual expert sessions. During these sessions, the latest developments regarding the GDPR Certification Standard and criteria BC 5701:2023 are discussed. Learning moments and insights from implementation processes and certification audits are shared. This keeps you up-to-date and the training retains its value.

What is not covered within this training

There are more relevant disciplines that are important for successfully guiding implementation, which are not or hardly addressed in this programme. This programme does not cover change management, project management and the meaning of the GDPR.

Study load

The training has no compulsory homework, but preparing yourself for the next training day will greatly benefit your learning efficiency. In addition, you should independently study the GDPR Certification Standard and Criteria BC 5701:2023. Allow for an average study load of 4 hours per study day.

The exam is a so-called ‘open book exam’. This means that you may consult the standard during the exam. Therefore, take the time to study the standard thoroughly prior to the training so that you know your way around during the exam.
