Naavi is committed to build a Privacy and Data Protection Culture in India. At a time when the Country has adopted a new Data Protection Law namely DPDPA 2023 and there is a mad rush by companies to recruit DPOs in their organization, there is confusion in the professional circles on how they should equip themselves for the new job opportunities that are unfolding.
Many are rushing to acquire CIPP-E or other courses at enormous cost to add a certification that would make them a better candidate in the job interviews.
However, rushing to get more of GDPR knowledge to serve in India is only creating more problems since Indian law is much different from GDPR and the study of CIPP-E may create wrong concepts in the minds of the professionals. They need to unlearn most of the concepts and re-learn the Indian concepts.
Naavi has therefore decided to offer courses which are more valuable than CIPP-E or other programs of similar nature based on GDPR but at much lesser cost.
CDPP-I is one course which is presently available at Rs 15000/- with content covering both DPDPA 2023 and ITA 2000 for the fist time.
CDPODA is a more comprehensive course which covers Indian Data Protection law as well as GDPR and several other global laws and also Data Audit related skills. It is therefore much more valuable than CIPP-E type of courses and priced at Rs 45000/- which is inclusive of benefits of Rs 9000/- (as of today) in the form of membership of FDPPI and Registration in the Indian National Register of Data Protection Professionals in India.
It is therefore a no brainer that the next destination of professionals in search of certification related to Data Protection is FDPPI/Cyber Law College.
What we propose now to professionals who are in a hurry to get certified is the following path.
- Take the DPDPA 2023 plus ITA 2000 currently offered as Module I and set to start from September. This will be a faculty lead program with support of recorded videos.
- Take Module G as a Recorded module with Mentor assistance on request where the faculty will answer your queries.
- Take Module A in a revised format where there will be in depth discussion on PDPCSI as a framework for Data Audit
Currently the entire program is priced at Rs 45000/- inclusive of GST. (From 1st October this may change to excluding GST)
If some body takes Module I only, the cost would be Rs 15000/- (Inclusive of GST). There after Module G will cost separately Rs 18000/- (inclusive of GST).
At the time Module A is subscribed, the cost of Module A could be Rs 24000/-
Taking each module separately would therefore be expensive and cost rs 57000/- in total with GST.
On the other hand taking all the three programs at one go would cost at present only Rs 45000/- (inclusive of GST) with another Rs 9000/- worth benefit. The net cost is therefore as low as Rs 36000/-
After October, the total cost of the combined module which we call as “Certified Data Protection Officer/Data Auditor” (CDPODA) would be Rs 45000/- + 18% GST or Rs 53100/-
Move quickly so that you could be in the early batches of professionals who will pass out.
New Courses will commence from September/October 2023.
