One (1) E-learning | Two (2) 3 hour Online sessions + Assignment | Two (2) Days Onsite Classroom | Examination

Course Description

This course caters to experienced and novice IT disaster recovery (DR) professionals. It looks at the implementation and managing of an IT DR plan with considerations given to cybersecurity, cloud and DR aspects of ISO 27001.

Participants will be guided to review each stage of the DR Planning (DRP) Methodology, and the process will include all aspects of creating the DR plan. The course concludes with an understanding of the need for exercising and maintaining the DR plan.

Participants would be assessed on their understanding of the concepts taught in a 3 1/2-hour online examination. Passing the examination would allow participants to claim the DRCP or apply for the DRCS or DRCE certification.

This course is now conducted as a Hybrid Learning approach where the final two modules (modules 3 and 4) are conducted as an onsite class at a dedicated location.
