One of the most exciting developments in business continuity management has been the emergence of global standards. ISO 22301 is among the most important of these and is relied on by auditors to assess the credibility of an organisation’s BCM programme.

It’s thus vital that organisations’ BMC programmes are properly aligned with ISO 22301 in order in order to receive a favourable audit report. BCM is already a requirement for JSE listings and the King Code of Corporate Governance, and is increasingly used by companies when assessing the sustainability of supply chain partners.

However, ISO 22301 does not provide proper guidance for implementers. ContinuitySA’s Certified ISO 22301 Lead Implementer course will guide you through the practical steps towards a full implementation of ISO 22301, turning theory into practice.

“Former course attendees note that our ISO 22301 Lead Implementer course confirm that it offers excellent guidance on creating a practical and thorough action plan,” says Cindy Bodenstein, Marketing Manager at ContinuitySA. “Having completed the course, they are equipped with a clear methodology for putting ISO 22301 into action—to the great benefit of their organisations.”

The course runs over five days at a cost of R16,500 (excluding VAT). The next course will run between 3-7 June 2019. For more details and to register, visit
