We are excited to announce two significant developments as an Official Training Partner of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). First, we are expanding our coverage to cover the vibrant continent of Africa. Second, we are introducing two exciting additions to our training offerings. These advancements represent our unwavering dedication to bridging knowledge gaps in the technology ecosystem.  

Hive Training expands to the rest of Africa

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we share the news of our expansion into the rest of Africa. This marks a pivotal moment in Hive Training's journey as we take our commitment to global education to new heights. Our mission has always been to democratise learning. In the last three years, we have provided world-class training built on a  practical and pragmatic approach to hundreds of trainees. According to Adedolapo Evelyn Adegoroye (Training Lead, Tech Hive Advisory), “By extending our coverage to the rest of Africa, our training team  would progressively narrow the knowledge and talent gap within the data protection  field on the continent, opening doors to a world of knowledge and opportunity for learners across the region.” This sentiment encapsulates the heart of our mission, inspiring us to continue pushing boundaries and creating world-class talents across variegated sectors.

Widening our Course Coverage: CIPT and Foundation of  Privacy and  Data Protection Course

In addition to our existing Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) courses, we are thrilled to unveil our latest offerings: the Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) and Foundation of  Privacy and  Data Protection. The new CIPT course equips learners with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complex privacy landscape in technology, while the foundation course is an introductory curriculum that details operational processes and illustrates privacy.

Reflecting on our journey, Diana Uzor (Training Facilitator, Tech Hive Advisory) stated that  “ we have breathed life into privacy through our real-world examples and comprehensive understanding of the evolving field. We are dedicated to ensuring that the modules are relatable and tailored to each participant's level of experience. Our approach is the driving force behind our consistent year-on-year growth, an achievement we are immensely proud of”. With an incredible pass rate, our training has helped launch careers and strengthened the capacity of our trainees.
