Masterclass: ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems

A masterclass is a five-day advanced training course that will give you a deeper understanding of management systems.

By developing this expertise, you’ll be better equipped to implement the more challenging technical aspects of a management system standard or discipline. You’ll also have the competence to improve an existing management system by evaluating the effectiveness of its implementation.

The masterclass explores key clause requirements, concepts and principles - as well as related standards and guidance.

This masterclass will provide you with the knowledge and skills to implement, maintain and improve the more technical aspects of a business continuity management (BCM) system.

Using short presentations, discussions, self-reflection and classroom activities, this masterclass will delve into deeper technical areas, requirements and concepts than would be covered in an on ISO 22301:2019 Lead Implementer training course.

An expert BSI tutor will be on hand to facilitate discussions, draw insights and experiences among the class. This will bring to life the concepts for designing and maintaining a BCM to safeguard your organization. It will enable you to maximize the applicability of your learning from the masterclass to your workplace.

The masterclass will cover the context of the organization and integration with business processes, along with the consideration of a wide variety of associated guidance and related standards.
