Course Overview

In the modern world, security and risk managers can no longer claim that they are in control of factors such as terrorism, climate change, social and political instability, natural disasters, technological breakdown, supply chain failures or any of the other rapidly cascading threats that could cause disruption, and potentially catastrophic destruction, to their operations.

For most security managers, genuine crises are events that they are likely to encounter no more than once or twice in their careers. It is at such moments that lessons learned over years of experience come into play. This course will prepare crisis managers to deal with such events as professionally and effectively as possible, and in so doing, will ensure the greatest safety for their organisations, operations and personnel.

The programme offers a mixture of theoretical knowledge with practical exercises, designed to give all participants skills and capabilities that are immediately transferable to their own work-place environment. The OFQUAL assessment includes group work activities during the course and post-course assignments.
