Crisis Communication Certified Expert (CCCE)

The Crisis Communication Certified Expert (CCCE) certification is designed and developed to instil pertinent concepts and knowledge in CC practitioners which will enable them to drive organizational-wide CC programs, develop CC strategies, develop and implement comprehensive CC plans and implement CM awareness and training programs, conduct exercises and tests and implement CC audit and assessment programs to ensure CC plan effectiveness. This certification is most developed and suited for CM/BC/IT DR managers, planners and project managers who are supporting the crisis communication team initiatives during a crisis.
