Brief Description
This 3-day course is aimed to equip delegates with the requisite knowledge and practical expertise for the design and implementation of an effective Business Continuity Management (BCM) system for companies, government establishments and not-for-profit organisations.
The course relies on a careful blend of theory and practice to empower delegates with scarce competencies linked to the effective application of contemporary tools and techniques for creating and maintaining the right mechanisms and processes that ensure continuity in business operations and service delivery even upon the occurrence of ordinarily catastrophic events.
