PrivacyTech, OneTrust’s annual global user conference, brings together industry leaders to breakdown the latest technology innovations driving global privacy management.

On day three, attendees have the option to attend the OneTrust Professional or the OneTrust PrivacyTech Expert Certification Program.

The OneTrust PrivacyTech Expert Certification is designed for those who have significant experience as a OneTrust administrator. Candidates should have a broad knowledge of the platform and a desire to leverage OneTrust to its full potential by mastering advanced features and capabilities.

Important info to know before registering:


Key differences between the Professional & Expert Certifications:

  • The Professional Certification is a high level overview of the functionalities of the OneTrust platform
  • The Professional Certification is an ideal introduction to OneTrust and serves as a pre-requisite for more advanced courses
  • OneTrust experts (engineers and members of the implementation team) teach the expert courses; you’ll get your questions answered by experts in the modules
  • The Expert Certification is hands-on; you get a training environment with pre-populated data in the OneTrust platform

***NOTE: The expert certification will allow you to become an expert in the module, not the regulation. Example: The Data Mapping expert session will make you an expert in OneTrust Data Mapping, not Data Mapping in general. Aspects of the law are incorporated in the training, but the focus is the use of the OneTrust platform.

What to know after you complete the Expert Certification:

  • Within 48 hours of completing the certification you’ll be sent an email with a link to the exam
  • The exam is web-based and online proctored
  • The exam link is valid for 30 days after you receive it
  • Once you pass the exam you’ll receive a unique downloadable certificate for your records and to share with your network
