From the new DP Operators Training and Certification Scheme:
"The old scheme and its policies will remain valid for those who started training prior to 1
January 2015. All trainee DPOs who started the training scheme before January 2015 will
have their training assessed on the old DP scheme rules.
Trainee DPOs who start the training scheme from 1 January 2015 (i.e. Induction course) will
carry on training under the criteria and conditions set up for the new training scheme."
