Upon partaking in the courses, participants will be presented with certificates of attendance and after successful assessment, they will be presented with certificates confirming them as Certified Associates of the Privacy Academy which entitles them to the suffix – CAPA. These latter certificates will be presented at an induction ceremony where the successful participants will be officially received as Associates of the Academy.
