Business Continuity Management Training (ISO 22301)

In the event of an emergency, many businesses and organisations must have the ability to mitigate damage and continue operating. ISO 22301:2019 is the international standard for Business Continuity Management (BCM).

Published by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 22301 is designed to help organisations prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from unexpected and disruptive incidents. To do so, the standard provides a practical framework for setting up and managing an effective business continuity management system. ISO 22301 aims to safeguard an organisation from a wide range of potential threats and disruptions.

Our Business Continuity Management training courses are designed to help you:

  • Increase operational resilience

  • Ensure you are prepared in an emergency

  • Manage a crisis

  • Put efficient disaster recovery plans in place

  • Secure your supply chain

  • Protect your reputation

  • Prepare for technology failures

  • Plan for sudden loss of critical resources

NQA is also a proud CQI and IRCA Approved Training Partner, and you can find many CQI and IRCA certified courses within our portfolio.

Why Choose ISO 22301 Training?

This training may be right for your organisation if you would like to demonstrate to stakeholders that your business can rapidly overcome operational disruption to provide continued and effective service.

Around the world, many countries have legislation in place to define the emergency planning responsibilities of organizations. Those responsibilities often include the implementation of Business Continuity Management. As a result, ISO 22301 certification and training should be considered essential to any organization legally required to engage in contingency planning, including utilities, transport, health and essential public services.

Whether you need to implement the standard to remain in compliance with industry regulations or not, pursuing ISO 22301 training can help your organisation develop resiliency and improve risk management.

Different Ways to Learn

NQA offer e-Learning, virtual, public and in-house training options to suit all learning styles and needs. You’ll learn about how to introduce and implement an ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System and then follow on with how to conduct internal audits to help you identify and reduce risks. For the more advanced professional our courses can also help you become a certified Lead Auditor.

Although much of our training is currently being held virtually, we are in the process of re-introducing some options for face-to-face public courses for those that like to interact in person with others. Keep an eye out for those coming soon.
