About the course...

Business Continuity and organisational resilience has emerged as a major consideration for all organisations in 2020 with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organisations have come to realise it is crucial to have a plan in place in the event they cannot operate under business as usual conditions. ISO 22301:2019 establishes a framework for identifying, assessing, responding to, and recovering from disruptive events to return to business as usual as quickly as possible.

Our Business Continuity course will give you an understanding of the role and requirements of ISO 22301: 2019 Security and resilience — Business continuity management systems — Requirements., including business impact analysis, integration with risk management, business continuity planning, disaster recovery, and more. 

All learning materials are provided, including a copy of ISO 22301:2019

This course is designed as an additional 2 day workshop that builds on the learning outcomes of the Integrated Management Systems Lead Auditor Course

This course has the equivalent of 16 Professional Development (PD) points.

        “Overall very valuable course. Balance of theory with practical workshops was excellent. Trainers stuck to the timetable very well.”

        “To be honest, I wasn’t really looking forward to the training and wasn’t too sure what to expect. It turned out to be quite enjoyable and a really great experience which I put down to the facilitators, Pat and Tom and the group. Both Pat and Tom shared their breadth of knowledge and experiences and were really engaging.”

        “Great presentation of the course, engaging facilitators and good use of group work. I found the course to be a great refresher for an audit course I did 10 years ago and now feel more motivated to go audits in a non-bow tie way!”

        “Trainers’ knowledge was excellent, their knowledge made the training and learning easy.”
