About the Course

Crisis Management Team (CMT) and Emergency Response Team (ERT) Leaders need access to the right information at the right time and level of detail to make the right decisions. The value of good crisis leadership has been proven over the past years. It is accepted that the increasing range of potential incidents and emergencies which could affect business, disrupt production and affect global reputation are becoming increasingly complicated.

This intensive 5-day Introduction to the Incident Command System (ICS) training course will impart to the delegates that strategic crisis management is the identification, selection and implementation of the organisation's goals and objectives and how to utilise authentic Leadership qualities that will be able to deliver excellent outcomes so successfully dealing with any Crisis. It will provide professionals with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to manage and lead teams and organisations before, during, and after a crisis or emergency.

It is important to understand that situational awareness in crisis situations — being aware of one's surroundings and identifying potential threats and dangerous situations — is more of a mindset than a complex skill. Because of this, situational awareness is something that should be practised by not only highly-trained government agents or specialised security teams but by all professionals involved with crisis management.

  • Acquire an in-depth knowledge of strategic crisis management
