In 2018, California passed one of the strictest privacy laws in the United States – the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The Act creates many new consumer rights and business obligations. The CCPA also requires workforce training. At Section 1798.135(a)(3), the CCPA requires that businesses “ensure that all individuals responsible for handling consumer inquiries about the business’s privacy practices or the business’s compliance with this title are informed of all requirements in Section 1798.120 and this section and how to direct consumers to exercise their rights under those sections.”
Professor Daniel J. Solove has developed a new California Consumer Privacy Act training course. There are two versions of this course:
(1) Extensive CCPA Training Version (about 15 minutes long with 5 quiz questions)
(2) Condensed CCPA Training Version (about 10 minutes long with 4 quiz questions)
- Understand the key requirements of the CCPA
- Learn how to identify personal information under the CCPA
- Learn the rights that consumers have and how to direct consumers to exercise their rights
- Understand the business’s responsibilities when collecting and transferring personal information
COURSE OUTLINE (15 Minute Version)
The 10 Minute Version omits the section on scope and applicability and the section on 30-day Cure Period, and makes a few other edits to cut some finer details to tighten the program. It also contains 4 quiz questions rather than 5.
Additionally, Professor Solove has developed a CCPA Whiteboard, which summarizes the CCPA in just 1 page!
Professor Solove has also developed a CCPA Interactive Whiteboard module (5.5 mins) based on the print whiteboard above.
We also have a short (~2 min) add on about the CCPA to add to existing privacy awareness training courses.
The chart below provides a comparison.
In this extensive CCPA FAQ, Professor Solove walks through the Act and explains what the CCPA is, whom the CCPA applies to, what rights the CCPA provides, what the CCPA requires for training, and reviews key terms including personal information, what a sale is under the CCPA, what a service provider is under the CCPA, and how the CCPA differs from the GDPR. He also provides several additional resources that can be of assistance in complying with the requirements.

About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy
TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.
According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”
TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.
