OUR COURSES

“What to do!” + “How to do it!”

As a typical course participant, you likely have less than two years experience in business continuity planning - perhaps you are brand new to the field! You may even have been ‘volun-told’ into this new role and need to learn - quickly and thoroughly - how to successfully carry out your new duties. 

Drawing from the new International Standard ISO 22301, the British Standard BS 25999, and the US Standard NFPA 1600, we believe our courses to be the very best business continuity training offered anywhere in the world.

In addition to "best principles", you also learn "best practices" - the practical "how to" develop and maintain effective continuity plans. We teach you “what” you need to know plus “how” to do it.
