BCI Pandemic Recovery Course

None of us have ever seen anything before like the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis. It’s stretched many organizations to breaking point and beyond. Even those organizations with tried and tested Business Continuity arrangements and plans for generic pandemic scenarios have struggled to adapt to the sheer scale of COVID-19 - leading to us into the most dynamic, real-time emergency any organization - large or small - has faced!

This new BCI course is designed to help organizations of any size or sector to look ahead and start to take stock of their organization's current position, and to define the new norms that will emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also help you plan a return to profitable operations so your business can play its full part in the recovery of the global economy.  

Who is this course for?

  • The course is for business continuity professionals and teams that are involved in planning for the implementation of robust return to work policies and developing continuity processes for systems that have undergone intensive and sudden change.
  • This course is also applicable to those who manage or own SMEs with some prior knowledge of business continuity that need to plan for their recovery 

What does the course cover?

The course is broken down into four modules, exploring the concept of recovery as well as the practical application using a number of different organizational starting points (e.g. a front-line organization, a moth-balled organization, a re-purposed organization etc.).
