Higher Education Initiative Business Continuity Management (BCLE 1500) Course
BCLE 1500 is a Higher Education Institution course designed for professionals who are at the introductory level of experience in the business continuity profession or for those current planners who are looking for a solid "how to" guide to building a business continuity program in their organization. It is recommended that participants have prior business knowledge or experience.
The course is designed to expose the participant to all aspects of a holistic BCM program and to determine the most appropriate requirements for their organization. It combines the ability to gain academic credits or a professional certificate and at the same time gain a credential from DRI International.
Course topics include BCP methodology; developing plan goals and objectives; data gathering; incorporating human resources; integrating alternative strategies for catastrophic event response and recovery; developing training/testing programs; creating plan products; and maintaining BCP relevancy. Other topics discussed are designing public relations/crisis communications strategies, coordinating efforts with public authorities and establishing emergency preparedness and response procedures.
Students receive the Professional Practices for Business Continuity Planners Guidebook and Case Studies of various companies' disaster responses and best practices in BCM. A BCP Tools & Resources Kit is also provided with DVD lists and website links of articles noted in the course.
BCLE 1500 prepares students for the DRI International Qualifying Examination and enables them to take the test at no extra cost upon course completion. Students who do not pass the exam are entitled to one FREE retake; and those who pass can then apply for certification at a nominal fee.
