Description
Designing and maintaining a Business Continuity Exercise Program can be as challenging as it is essential. This brand new, hands-on course provides the in-depth information resilience professionals need to establish an exercise program or take an existing one to the next level.

You will learn how to assess the efficacy of your business continuity plans using a blended exercise assessment approach that incorporates proven models, including DRI’s Professional Practices for Business Continuity Management and The Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Plan (HSEEP). The training is designed to be flexible, scalable, and adaptable for all sizes and types of organizations, so you can choose to use what will work best in your environment.

Participation is key as you learn from our experienced instructors and from each other. Working your way through challenging material, you’ll build an in-class exercise while you discover lessons learned and best practices from the exercise community as well as current policies and plans that support training, technology systems, tools, and technical assistance.
