A new online certification course trains companies how to protect their business in case of disaster.
The PDCA process lies at the heart of ISO 22301
Online PR News – 23-September-2012 –Fire, flood, technology failures and other disasters shut the doors of small to mid-size companies every day. According to professional studies, most of these businesses never re-open their doors.
A new online training and certification program has just been launched by the Institute for Business Continuity Training (IBCT) which will help these companies stay in business - no matter what!
Entitled "Implementing ISO 22301", this course trains owners and managers of small to medium-sized companies in the brand new International Standard for Business Continuity Management - using the same disaster recovery techniques as Fortune 500 corporations at a fraction of the cost.
ISO 22301 was published in May 2012 by the International Standards Organization. Entitled "Societal security -- Business continuity management systems --- Requirements", ISO 22301 is the world’s first international standard for Business Continuity Management (BCM). ISO 22301 specifies requirements to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a documented management system to prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptive events when they arise.
"Our new online training course in ISO 22301 - Business Continuity Management - shows you step-by-step how to create an effective Business Continuity Management Plan, or how to improve the one you already have", notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of the IBCT. "The goal is to protect your business against any kind of disaster."
The course follows the internationally-recognized cycle of Plan-Do-Check-Act, an iterative four-step management method used for the control and continuous improvement of business processes.
"The course is completely self-paced, which means that you can work as quickly or slowly as you need", notes Mr. Bittle. "And the program is recognized by the National Institute for Business Continuity Management, which means you can also can receive national certification." Many companies receive discounts on their insurance when they have a business continuity plan.
The course fee is only $995 USD, which compares to the $2,995 fees paid by large corporations.
