ISO 22301:2012 Auditor / Lead Auditor (CQI IRCA 1726) (40 hrs)

Course Code: ISO22301-LABC-03

Capitalising on the powerful Accelerated Learning Technique, this course spends a good portion of the time on discussions, exercises and case studies to help participants to consolidate knowledge and acquire hands on experience that are instrumental in their capacity as a BCMS auditor or as a business continuity function personnel.
