ContinuitySA to host five day Practitioner course

Five Day Complete Continuity Practitioner course to be held at the end of August

August 3, 2011

This course is designed to equip business continuity practitioners within any organisation in all aspects of implementing, managing and maintaining an effective business continuity framework in their respective environments.

Effective and tested business continuity plans and well trained staff enabled Morgan Stanley in the World Trade Centre 9/11 disaster to recover from a catastrophe and have the business up and running again within a number of hours. So how important is training in this sector?

“The last decade has seen a wealth of information on business continuity become available and many standards published and accepted,” said Millington Gumbo, general manager, consulting services, ContinuitySA.  Our Complete Continuity training programme bridges the gap between best practice standards and practical examples so that attendees will gain invaluable knowledge that they can take back and confidently apply in their own business environment,” he said.

Business continuity management needs to be focussed on delivering the capability to restore or continue the most critical business operations in the event of a disruption. Effective training is a vital component in this framework as it ensures that the right actions are fulfilled the right way.

Business continuity practitioners who have been through certified training also hold more credibility within their own organisations to implement and test their plans aligning them to corporate objectives.

The course is based on the Business Continuity Institute’s Good Practice guidelines and  is fully ISETT SETA accredited with 149 credits at NQF Level 6.

Experienced specialists accredited by the Business Continuity Institute, facilitate the course.  As such the imparted skills are based on those applied in real world scenarios. These facilitators hold either a MBCI or FBCI certification thus ensuring that the course adheres to the highest professional standards in the business continuity market worldwide.

The Complete Continuity practitioner five day course will run from 29 August to 2 September from 08h00 to 17h00 at Continuity’s offices in Randburg at 308 Kent Avenue.

The cost is R10,999.

An early bird rate for early registrations before the 10th August will be offered at a 15% discount. All delegates will receive full course material, a recovery site orientation tour and a certificate of attendance.
