Business Continuity Management Blended Learning Course (BL-B-5)
This holistic business continuity management (BCM) course is primarily designed for BC professionals or anyone interested in implementing or managing business continuity for their organisation.
The course is divided into 4 modules where each module allows you to understand the BCM fundamentals, practice and implement an actual risk assessment, business impact analysis, business continuity strategy and plan as well as in-depth discussion on how to engage management and the BCM team when the BCM plan has been implemented. Participants would also be able to have a fundamental knowledge of crisis management and command centre management.
The course would put more emphasis on pandemic management and how it relates to business continuity.
It is expected to be completed within 15 weeks.

It would then be followed up by Module 4 work where participants are tasked to present on RAR, BIA, BCS and BC Plan and how it relates to an organisations’s BCM.
