ContinuitySA has announced that its specialised Complete Continuity Business Continuity Management Training Programmes, the only hands-on courses of this nature on the continent received full ISETT SETA accreditation and ‘Content Approval’ from the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) based in the United Kingdom.
Louise Theunissen, GM of Consulting Services at ContinuitySA explains, “We developed two business continuity Management courses focused on the requirements of different types of customers.
“The first, the two-day Complete Continuity Programme is designed to include all aspects of business continuity, providing an overview for those looking for an understanding of the issues involved in business continuity management. The Complete Continuity Practitioner Programme, on the other hand, is a five-day course designed for those requiring a more in-depth, hands-on approach.”
Both courses have now been fully ISETT SETA accredited. The two-day course qualifies for 138 credits at a NQF level 5, while the five-day course, qualifies for 149 credits at a NQF level 6.
“This accreditation is a major milestone for ContinuitySA as previously only the five-day programme was accredited at NQF level 3,” adds Theunissen. “This means the courses can now form part of a broader business management curriculum instead of being run as standalone events.”
Furthermore, ContinuitySA has received international recognition for its training programmes by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI). The Content Approval endorsement provides assurance to delegates that the content of both programmes aligned with the Good Practice Guidelines prescribed by the BCI assuring clients the highest quality in delivery.
In celebration of this achievement, each delegate not affiliated with the BCI will automatically be enrolled as a BCI Affiliate to enjoy the benefits that accompanies this affiliation. This offer will run for a period of twelve months.
In addition the courses are designed in accordance with the British standard methodology for Business Continuity Management, BS25999. Basing the courses on this standard ensures that attendees are exposed to the latest, certified practices and methodologies in the field. As opposed to traditional training programmes in which facilitators deliver the course, all the trainers are practising business continuity consultants employed by ContinuitySA, holding either an MBCI (Member of the BCI) or FBCI (Fellow of the BCI) status, which is the highest level of BCI accreditation.
