Business continuity education options
A growing number of business continuity education opportunities are presented by business continuity-related organizations. DRI International and the BCI (business continuity institute) offer a wide variety of professional practice-oriented training covering all aspects of the planning process.
The International Red Cross (and similar organizations) offers emergency response and first aid training. A significant number of public relations firms offer both crisis communications and media training.
And finally, international, national and local business continuity conferences offer training on a wide variety of topics, normally presented by leading vendors and business continuity practitioners. National conferences include the Disaster Recovery Journal (DRJ), Continuity Insights, and Contingency Planning and Management (CPM).
