Course tutor Charlie Swanson explained to Risk Xtra: “In today’s risk climate, it’s crucial that professional managers understand risk, crisis and disaster management. PerpetuityARC Training now offers two approaches to this through either our bespoke virtual learning platform or a classroom-based learning environment. The online option provides the flexibility to participate at your own pace, while the classroom offers a more collaborative approach towards learning through engagement with colleagues and peers.”

Sarah Hayward-Turton, head of sales at the Linx International Group, added: “By launching the online version of this popular course, we’re providing more pathways to attain professional qualifications that help people do their current jobs better and improve career prospects.”

The Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management online course takes approximately 30 hours to complete. The usual price of the course is £575 plus VAT, but there’s a 15% discount available using the code PRESS2018.
