BCS Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information Course Overview

The BCS Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information (FOI) course is designed to help professionals in the public and private sectors gain a comprehensive education in FOI principles, law, and processes. The aim of the course is to provide attendees with a consistent and thorough understanding of the current regulations and requirements of FOI legislation, and to be able to identify situations where FOI requests can be made. The course focuses on the requirements for FOI success and equips candidates with the skills needed to respond to FOI requests.
The course begins with a discussion on FOI principles, law, and processes, including the Data Protection Act of 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). From there, the topics move on to examining the processes and requirements of making a FOI request, the potential responses that can be given, and the management of FOI requests. The final module of the course deals more directly with FOI legislation and the need to protect confidential information.
Attendees of the BCS Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information course will gain a comprehensive understanding of FOI, an understanding of the current laws and regulations, and the skills needed to satisfactorily complete and respond to FOI requests. These recognitions will better prepare individuals for the roles of communicating, managing, and protecting FOI and privacy rights in the public and private sectors.

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
