This course will explore how to develop a comprehensive exercise programme to ensure that all elements of the BCM Lifecycle are validated. The course, as well as instruction, will be practical and ‘hands on’ allowing students to practice the skills and techniques taught.

This course is based on the BCI Good Practice Guidelines and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301 and ISO 22398.
