IAPP Certification FAQs

IAPP training courses are appropriate for professionals who want to develop their privacy knowledge or want to learn more about the topics included on a certification exam.  

The IAPP training courses alone are NOT sufficient for pure test preparation. Rather, they are detailed, informative, interactive opportunities to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the exam. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge. 

The IAPP training courses cover an outline of critical topics that privacy professionals need to know to do their jobs. We call this outline a body of knowledge, and it serves as the basis for both IAPP training and IAPP certification exams. 

The IAPP training courses are the best way to prepare for a certification exam. But they are not the only thing you should do to prepare for an exam.  

You are more likely to pass an exam if you also: 

  • Review the body of knowledge, exam blueprint and authoritative resources  
  • Read the textbook  
  • Review sample questions  
  • Review industry resources, such as key pieces of legislation, news and IAPP publications and blog posts 

We recommend you study the key IAPP mat for a minimum of 20 to 30 hours before taking the exam.
