Training for Business Continuity Leads


Training for Business Continuity Leads, who are from professional disciplines outside of Business Continuity, to provide key theoretical knowledge of Business Continuity and Resilience.  

The workshops are interactive to enable the participants to actively engage and obtain the knowledge they require. 

The in-house course is tailored to the needs and circumstances of the organisation. By attending this course the participants can share a common understanding and share experiences.

The training includes the use of video clips, exercises, relevant research, and examples/case studies to illustrate concepts and best practice.
