An essential qualification for the modern FOI Officer

The Act Now FOI Practitioner Certificate is the qualification for those wishing to acquire detailed knowledge of FOI and related information access legislation in a practical context.

The course has been designed by leading FOI experts including Ibrahim Hasan and Susan Wolf, formerly a senior lecturer on the University of Northumbria's LLM in Information Rights Law.

WHY THIS COURSE IS DIFFERENT?

  • An emphasis on the practical application of FOI rather than just learning dry law;
  • Lots of real life case studies and exercises;
  • An emphasis on drafting Refusal Notices;
  • An online Resources Lab with links, guidance and over 10 hours of videos; and
  • Modern assessment methods rather than a closed book exam.
