Crisis Communication Blended Learning Course (BL-C-5)
The Crisis Communication Blended Learning is a comprehensive Crisis Communication course equivalent to the international certification Crisis Management Expert Implementer. It’s combination of both online and face to face interaction allows busy crisis management executives to study with minimal disruption to their schedule.
The course is divided into 4 modules where each module allows you to understand crisis communication fundamentals, deploy crisis communication templates, manage a crisis management team, execute crisis communication and develop a crisis simulation exercise.
It is expected to be completed within 15 weeks.

Module 2 – Facilitated Online Workshop
Participants will be given the opportunity to practice the fundamental concepts of crisis communication, to conduct a risk assessment and relate to ISO 31000 Risk Management, understand the business impact analysis, select a crisis communication strategy and implement, exercise and test the crisis communication plans. They would be provided actual templates of these plans to familiarise and use as hands-on practice.
These are to be done after pre-reading materials and guidance are disseminated. Participants are to attempt the templates for each concept per stage.
