Course duration and format

ou can approach this course in one of two ways:

1. If you treat it purely as a source of information and knowledge, then you can complete the course in around 90 to 120 minutes.

2. However, if you engage fully with the materials and the learning materials, it will guide you through creating a complete system for disaster recovery. To do this will require significant additional time to complete the checklists and to reflect on your own practice, but it is divided into sections so that you can complete it in a number of sessions.
We advise you to complete each section at one sitting to maximise your learning, where possible, but allowing time between study sessions may enhance your learning by allowing additional time for reflection on both your learning and your current practices and allow you to implement plans from what you have learnt.

At the end, there is an online test, successful completion of which will enable you to get a certificate to provide evidence of your learning. You should be able to demonstrate what you learnt going forward in improvements to your business resilience.
