Business Continuity Training Courses - ending the "Forgetting Curve"


Business Continuity Training courses whether delivered as on-line business continuity training or classroom-based business continuity training all have one thing in common - “the forgetting curve”.  This occurs when you attend a training session and then do not immediately start using the new information or skills that you have learned – the knowledge starts to evaporate and in a short time most of the knowledge imparted is lost.  This is particularly common when the training is non-vocational (i.e. it’s not part of your day job).  If you are a Facilities Manager, HR, or Health & Safety specialist who has also inherited responsibility for your organisation’s business continuity plan, attending a one-off classroom based or on-line business continuity training course will be of limited value.    Unless you immediately immerse yourself in the subject matter or have some post learning support, the knowledge you have acquired (and anyone else who has attended the same business continuity training course) will not stay fresh for very long.


That’s why we developed BCM-in-a-Day, a one day workshop with access to document templates (which saves you the time of developing your own and provides practical reference material related to the concepts covered in the business continuity training course) and an option to have ongoing support, feedback and advice as the development of your business continuity plan progresses.  This joined up approach ensures that once you have attended one of our business continuity training courses the “forgetting curve” is counteracted.



We don't believe that having people sit through several days of lectures based on theory and concepts and then sending them on their way with nothing more than a bunch of "PowerPoints" is good enough.


BCM-in-a-Day concentrates on practice, not theory, providing delegates with the practical knowledge they will need to design, develop and deploy business continuity capabilities within your organisation


BCM-in-a-Day gives you:

Knowledge: A one day training course covering the building blocks of a sound, robust business continuity plan and how to develop each stage of your plan.


Tools: Your people will have access to our on-line library of plan development templates to help them develop each component of your business continuity plan. Once the classroom-based training is complete they leave with access to our on-line library, giving them all the tools they will need to get the job done (not just a pile of PowerPoint slides).


Support: There is also the option for a support and mentoring service that will give access to our consultants for advice and guidance throughout the plan development process.  The support service allows your people to get help, advice and feedback whenever they need it.


Peace of Mind: The Business Continuity Framework that you establish will meet the needs of any supplier or third-party assessment


Flexibility: We have a schedule of courses at different locations in the UK or, if you prefer, we can deliver a course at your premises  at a date and time that suits you.  Our scedule of public courses can be foend here.  If you would like further information on a course delivered at your premises please use the contact form below and we will be in touch to discuss your requirements



Although the cost of delivering a business continuity programme via BCM-in-a-Day is significantly lower than traditional approaches to training, the big benefit is in skills development and ownership.  Our approach develops the skills and capabilities of your people by providing an environment where they learn by doing with the option of an ongoing “safety net” of coaching, advice and feedback.   Our process not only delivers a comprehensive and effective plan, it transfers the knowledge and capability into your organisation so that you can keep the programme going with your own resources.
