Advanced Certificate in Change and Crisis Management

There is a popular truism that “Change is the most constant thing in life” but probably truer than that is the fact that “Crisis is as constant as (if not more than) change”. This may sound like a paradox but a critical reflection will provide convincing discussions during this course.

Preparing for a crisis is not a luxury; it is actually a necessity. As individuals or professionals, we all know the odds are high that our personal lives or businesses will (definitely) suffer a disaster or crisis at some point. However, it is unacceptable for anyone to excuse or resign himself to fate due to sheer unpreparedness.

This comprehensive course provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect individuals, their organizations and societies - such as cyber security, supply chain, terrorism, pandemic, DR trends, emergency response, leadership, data breach, communications, news media, social media — from the experts involved with these efforts. It also examines strategies for job and career improvement during and after crisis. Delegates on this course will have the opportunity to interact with our lecturers and with peers from industry, academia, and government.

By the end of the course, delegates will have the tools, knowledge, and understanding to benchmark, assess, and improve their personal and business continuity plans, disaster recovery, and crisis management program. This includes the course manual (print and/or e-files), templates, and current articles.

Delegates would gain valuable contacts, have plenty of networking opportunities, and acquire insights for immediate implementation.
