PRLog - Sep. 4, 2012 - NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. -- Small to medium-sized businesses close down every year due to disasters like fire, flood, technology failure and other causes. According to professional studies, most of these companies never re-open their doors.
IBCT provides online and in-person training
A new online training program has just been launched by the Institute for Business Continuity Training which will help these companies stay in business - no matter what!
Entitled "Effective Business Continuity Management", this 20 lesson online course trains owners and managers of small to medium-sized businesses in the same techniques used by Fortune 500 corporations - at a fraction of the cost.
"Our new Diploma in Business Continuity Management course integrates both international and national standards, including ISO 22301, BS 25999 and NFPA 1600," notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of the IBCT.
The new course utilizes instructor-led lectures, case study exercises, online feedback and discussion, and presents 20 individual lessons of an hour each, with lesson quizzes, assignments, and the presentation of an individual writing project.
"The entire course and all assignments are geared towards developing an effective business continuity plan to safeguard your business," he adds.
The course is completely self-paced, which means that you can work as quickly or slowly as you need. And the program is recognized by the National Institute for Business Continuity Management, which means course participants can receive national certification.
The course fee is only $ 995 USD, which compares to the $ 2,995 fees paid by large corporations.
