I highly recommend the CIPP/C course as taught by Nicholas Cheung of The Privacy Pro. As a lawyer shifting focus to privacy issues, obtaining the CIPP/C designation has been a back-burner project for several years. However, after taking the course last month and some further preparation this month, I feel more than ready to write the exam. This course provided the opportunity to efficiently develop an overall framework of privacy regulation in Canada and an appreciation of IAPP focus for exam preparation purposes. Nicholas Cheung is an excellent instructor – he delivered the content-filled course with expertise and warmth. Thank you, Nick.

This was my second online course ever and I would have to say that I really enjoyed it.  The course material was well planned, organized and had great structure which was very easy to follow. I enjoyed the ability to access the information at any time of the day. I am very thankful that the instructor, Nicholas Cheung, did an amazing job of communicating the information and making it relevant to experiences in life. The course exceeded my expectations with the interaction with the other students and the instructor by sharing feedback which enhanced my learning especially with the complexity of information that was supplied. The best benefit was having an instructor that was enthusiastic about the material he teaches and he made each class very enjoyable.
