Ten years of teaching the CBCI Certification Course - what has changed

Charlie looks at how the CBCI Certification Course (GPG) has changed over the last ten years.

“The course was very efficiently run and the tutor, James Royds, was extremely knowledgeable about the subject area. As well as being able to deliver the theoretical aspects of Business Continuity Management, he was able to deliver practical applications which will help us to review our own BC strategies.”
