Beware of Unauthorized Trainers
If you are considering training with a company that is not the IAPP or an IAPP Official Training Partner, be careful. Unauthorized trainers often guarantee – erroneously – you will pass the exam and may wrongfully claim to be authorized by the IAPP and/or use our logo and official seal illegally. To see if a trainer is authorized, view our list of IAPP Official Training Partners worldwide. If the training company is not on our list, you risk being duped out of your time and money and being less prepared for your exam.
