If it has been a few years since you took a DRI business continuity course, then this bridge course is a must for you…and the rest of your team too.

The Professional Practices recently underwent an extensive revision and update, and it is critical for continuity professionals to understand what changed, how, and why. This course communicates these substantive changes, and their implications for business continuity programs, using an interactive case study that addresses today’s cyber threats and is loaded with brand new manufacturing and supply chain information. Other new additions include, risk management concepts, legal and regulatory concerns, and utilizing insurance as a risk transfer tool. Missing this course means missing out on key changes to the Professional Practices and to your chosen profession. Register today to keep current.


“This was a very informative course – one to help refresh the ‘basics’ since I took the certification exam and obtained certification back in 2008! The ability to interact despite being a virtual course was valuable…and I learned a lot from the questions and answers, especially from fellow professionals in totally different fields than mine! I would definitely recommend this course to all certified professionals as a refresher.” – CBCP, USA

“This was a great course to get caught up on the changes that have occurred since the last time I took my certification. The instructor was great and clear in communication and engaged everyone.” – CBCP, USA
