Accelerated ISO training, ISO course and ISO certification

The 22301 Lead Implementer is a PECB (Professional Evaluation and Certification Board) official course.

Get the skills and expertise to support your organisation in implementing and managing a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) - with the latest ISO 22301 certification. During this three-day intensive course, you'll gain a strong understanding of the best practices used to implement business continuity processes using ISO 22399. This course is 40% faster than traditional training.

The training has been developed in line with:

  • ISO 10006 - quality management systems: guidelines for quality management in projects
  • ISO 27031 - guidelines for information and communication technology readiness for business continuity
  • BS 25999 - business continuity management specification

You'll also get one year’s free membership of PECB (Professional Evaluation and Certification Board) - which usually costs around £250.
