Instructor-led Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP) training is available to support public bodies in the effective administration of the FOIP legislation.
The instructor-led training program includes the five courses described in the Training Calendar. A detailed list of topics covered in each course is provided on the Course Description page. Training sessions are held in Edmonton and Calgary several times a year. Arrangements can also be made for delivery of training at your workplace.
The courses in this program have been developed by Service Alberta, the ministry responsible for the province-wide administration of FOIP. The ministry has contracted with Cenera to deliver the courses and handle course registrations and billing.
An interactive online course (FOIP: Focus on Privacy) is also available. Designed specifically for employees of all levels within public bodies, it provides a basic overview of the concepts of informational privacy and requires 1-2 hours to complete. To take the course, go to the FOIP website Online Training page.
