Why use BC Training?


Up to Date Industry Knowledge

Our team of tutors work as consultants in the business continuity industry, in addition to delivering training for BC Training, and combine eminence with vast experience, offering delegates a unique insight into the real-life scenarios they may encounter outside the classroom. This ensures they are up to date with the latest business continuity theory and practical applications. BC Training also expands our course portfolio to adapt to changing threats and requirements for new training, including training in cyber incident management.


Quality of Training

We closely monitor all delegate feedback regarding courses, venues, and tutors. Where comments and suggestions are made, we act on them promptly to enhance the delegate’s learning experience from the course. BC Training receives a high level of repeat business and numerous referrals through word of mouth, indicating high levels of client satisfaction. We are also certified to ISO 9001, which demonstrates our commitment to consistency and continually improving the quality of our products and services.


Tutor Experience

BC Training works with the best tutors in the industry. Our team of tutors all have a vast background in business continuity and many years of experience. In addition to providing training that keeps pace with changing threats and technologies, BC Training’s tutors regularly contribute to the industry as individuals, speaking at conferences across the world, and publishing articles and papers on topical issues on Continuity Central. Our team of tutors also includes two former Chairs of the BCI, James McAlister and James Royds.


Course Style

BC Training offers classroom and live online training courses, as well as bespoke in-house courses to meet any specific requirements that clients may have. Our live online courses have been adapted to suit training on an online platform and all our tutors bring their own experience and knowledge to the courses they deliver. We also offer e-learning for those who prefer to self-study and require training to fit around other commitments.



We believe in more than just theory-based learning. We like to vary the learning experience by working through exercises and providing the opportunity to interact with the other delegates on the course. In doing so, delegates can gain knowledge and share some of their experiences in the field of business continuity. This also provides a good opportunity for networking. Our live online training courses have been made as interactive as possible and may also include the use of quizzes and polls, as well as group work.
