What delegates say…

“Best training course I have attended. Rinske was knowledgeable, patient, and provided thought-provoking exercises and examples. Many Thanks.” – Australian Research Council

Being in business means taking risk

For many reasons, your organisation needs a Business Continuity Plan and proper Risk Management framework/practices, for example for regulatory requirements (e.g. direct/indirect APRA, Government, Bank Negara compliance), to meet customer expectations, for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to meet industry standards (e.g. ISO) and/or to achieve a better/cheaper insurance arrangement.

Whether or not you have experience in Business Continuity and Risk Management, we offer courses for all levels and none of these have a formal prerequisite. Some experience is useful in relation to the Lead Implementer training, but other than that you have the option to choose the program(s) that are of most interest to you.

Our best practice course is all you need to take the headache out of Business Continuity Management…

  • Super practical
  • Developed in accordance with global industry guidelines and Government standards
  • Earn CEAP points (in accordance with your institute's policies and procedures)

Get trained by the best…

  • Trained 1000+ individuals across Australasia, Europe and Africa
  • Assisted 100+ companies with their Business Continuity challenges
  • Presented at conferences globally, totaling 10,000+ delegates

Benefit from…

  • Sitting the ISO22301 Foundation PECB certification exam including lifetime (free!) recertification if you pass
  • Expert guidance whilst documenting your actual plans during the workshop
  • FREE soft copies of practical BCP/DR templates used during the course

Get ready for the real BCP challenges at work…

  • Play the “BCP team formation” management boardgame
  • Role-play the challenge of getting buy-in across the organisation
  • Learn from delegates across different disciplines and industries

The 3-day course assists anyone who has some involvement in BCM/DR - whether from BCM, Risk, IT, HR, Compliance, Operations or other business areas - to increase their knowledge. You will also get guidance to prepare for the ISO22301 Foundation PECB certification exam.

Note that each course day is 9:30am-4:30pm.  Note also that the classroom components are complemented by 90 mins self study after each day 1 and day 2. 

Benefits of a proper Business Continuity Management framework 

  • Meeting regulatory requirements
  • Achieving insurance premium discounts
  • Gaining competitive advantage when responding to Requests for Tender
  • Reducing risks, and improving the capability of your organisation to continue critical activities “no matter what”
  • Providing shareholders, customers, employees, 3rd parties and general public with confidence in your business
  • Ensuring common terminology/language about BCM/DR/Risk across your organisation
  • Enhancing motivation of your teams to perform well in regards to BC/DR testing and Risk Management documentation
  • Increase control over BC/DR/Risk Management processes and improve ability to measure progress.
