NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - Oct. 24, 2018 - PRLog -- Small and medium-sized businesses close down every year due to fire, flood, technology failure and other causes. According to professional studies, most of these companies never re-open their doors.

So what can be done to prevent such disasters?

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 fully integrates the international BCM standard, ISO 22301," notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of IBCT. "This means it is applicable to any size or type of business."

Mr. Bittle has recently returned from the Caribbean where he used this new international standard to train over 200 MSMEs (Micro- Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises) in effective Business Continuity Management.

The new online course utilizes instructor-led lectures, case study exercises, online feedback and discussion, and presents 20 individual lessons of an hour each, with lesson quizzes, and assignments. For those who wish - professional certification in Business Continuity Management is also available at no extra charge.

"The entire course and all assignments are geared precisely towards showing you how to develop an effective business continuity plan to safeguard your business," Mr. Bittle 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 professional certification.

The course fee is only $ 995 USD, which compares to the $ 2,995 fees paid by large corporations.

This online training course supplements the classroom workshops provided by IBCT internationally throughout the year. "If you cannot attend one of our courses in-person," adds Mr. Bittle, "the online course is the next best thing."
