To optimise your experience, we also recommend that you follow the optional preparatory workshop for the certification examination, during which time will be devoted to a recap of the essentials, exercises, a discussion and a Q&A session.

A few details about the examination:

  • Examinees are requested to bring their own device in order to take the examination.
  • The examination can be taken twice a year at EIPA headquarters in Maastricht only.
  • The examination lasts 2 hours.
  • The maximum score obtainable is 100 points and in order to pass the examination, examinees need to obtain 60 points.

Examination process

Review

In order to guarantee a fair process, two randomly allocated reviewers from the examination board will evaluate the essays separately. The Chair of the examination board will have the last word after seeing the conclusions of both reviewers.

Language

The examination is offered in English only. The time limit for the examination is sufficient for the vast majority of candidates, including non-native English speakers. No points are deducted due to possible grammar or language mistakes.

Handling of exams

EIPA will take all available precautions to ensure the appropriate and secure handling of completed essays.

Examination re-sit

In the event you did not manage to reach the set threshold and did therefore not pass the exam, you are offered the opportunity to do one examination re-sit for €150 within one year.

The Examination Board

The exam is under the supervision of an examination board. The examination board meets regularly to discuss the certification course requirements and approve the examinations. They discuss as needed to review and resolve any submitted certification appeals. The examination board consists of experts who have proven knowledge of and practical expertise in the field of data protection, one of whom will serve as chair.

Certificate validity

Data Protection issues continue to change and it is very important to keep yourself ahead and update your knowledge regularly. Therefore, the EIPA certificate is valid for a period of two years. In order to update your knowledge and maintain the validity of your certificate you will need to attend EIPA’s refresher course on data protection every two years. You will receive an updated certificate after taking part in this.
