New Business Continuity Training Workshop, January 23-25 in Madrid
MADRID, Spain - Oct. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- A new Business Continuity training and certification course based on the international BCM standard ISO 22301 and the Lean Six Sigma approach will be offered January 23-25, 2019 in Madrid.
This comprehensive 3-day workshop will present a clear methodology for protecting any size or type of business against any type of natural or man-made disaster.
Business interruptions can strike anytime, anywhere. Effective Business Continuity and Resiliency Management ensures that vital business processes continue - no matter what happens.
"This is an exceptional and comprehensive course," notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of the Institute for Business Continuity Training which is hosting this workshop. "Every company should send their senior management, auditors, IT specialists, records managers, and virtually everyone involved with strategic business management."
Entitled "ECP-801: Business Continuity & Resiliency Management", this workshop incorporates the new International ISO Standard for Business Continuity Planning. It also draws on the lean six sigma approach, in order to reduce the amount of time for developing a BCP from 2 years to 3 months.
The course proceeds from project inception through to implementation and management. This includes sessions on Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis, and Awareness and Training, utilizing an "all hazards" approach applicable to every size and type of company.
Invitations have gone out to all major corporations and business associations in the region to send representatives to the course. "We expect banking and insurance companies will attend, along with manufacturing, telecommunications and retail firms," Mr. Bittle said.
Companies are encouraged to send multiple representatives to receive special discounts.
Course participants receive a Diploma in Business Continuity Management and also have the opportunity to sit the professional exam for the "Business Continuity and Resiliency Professional - ISO 22301 Specialist" designation at no additional charge.
They also receive a 16 Gig BCM FlashDrive full of electronic tools in Word, PDF, Excel and PowerPoint format covering all aspects of Business Continuity Planning, including a complete business resumption plan which can be used as a template for their own firm's BCP.
The Institute for Business Continuity Training is a leading international agency specializing in training corporations and governments on the value of effective business continuity plans.
IBCT's training technique combines instructor-led discussion, case studies and group exercises, and their focus is to train participants in "industry best practices' as well as the "best principles" for developing Business Continuity Plans for their firms.
