Webinar registration
To kick off the new non-degree certificate offering, we are hosting a free webinar, “Continuity Planning: Job Outlooks and Opportunities,” Tuesday, November 27 from 12-2pm PT with Dr. Ernest Scalberg. Those interested in learning about careers in business continuity, disaster recovery, and contingency planning – as well as the new certificate – are encouraged to participate.  Register for this webinar.

Why continuity planning?

Businesses, NGO’s, and Governments are increasingly confronted with emergencies and disasters that threaten the continuity of their operations and services.  Among these disruptions are major storms and flooding, earthquakes, fires, terrorism, power outages, security breaches, and disease pandemics.  Many organizations have designed and implemented business continuity plans and a growing number are adding to or certifying their existing staff to plan and manage for continuity of operations.
