This highly innovative course provides professionals with a corporate or an academic interest in risk, crisis and disaster management an exceptional opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding across the whole subject area.
Disaster Management is a rapidly emerging subject for public and private organisations both of whom will have key roles in lessening the impact of future human ecological; food (FDA) safety; epidemiology, industrial and public health catastrophes.
Looking at UN guidance the course identifies that big disasters have dynamic and multi-faceted causes and are dependent on a growing number of factors: at international, national and at community level. The multi-disciplinary professional therefore has to deal with the disaster but also looking for and implementing strategies that could prevent or at least minimise the chance of them happening again or mitigating their impact. This high-powered course demonstrates that the subject is a continuous process, not just a reaction to a specific event.
We can try to prepare for the worst, but big disasters cause chain reactions that some say we can't always anticipate. Our new course in Disaster Management looks at ‘’Black Swan’’ events, it is ideal therefore if you want to start or advance a career in risk management, emergency planning or catastrophe-related mitigation. On completion of this course delegates will exhibit a complete comprehension of:
This state-of-the-art course will be ideal for specialist Public Health Protection professionals; Epidemiologists; Consultants in Communicable Diseases; Pandemic Officials, Government Food and Drug Administrators, Public Utility and Civil Defence managers. In addition the course is recommended to all those managers who have been allocated an Emergency Response remit in their list of responsibilities.
You will develop an understanding of the causes of disasters and their impacts through the analysis of case studies. You will assess a range of risk reduction interventions, investigate how disaster and risk management can be mainstreamed into public or corporate policy and take a systematic approach to analysing disasters and crises.
Day 1 The Big Problem with Big Disaster Planning! The bigger the disaster, the bigger the challenge. Disasters: Hazard, Vulnerability Risk and Society

Here we focus on the relationship between hazards and people and consider our anticipation of the secondary reactions to the primary disaster.

Day 5 Safety, Security, Terrorism and Disaster Management
This module will provide you with a detailed understanding of the key issues surrounding managing risk and security, policing and terrorism with a focus on global issues and their impact at the local level.
The training process is based on a carefully planned mix of succinct tutor input - with practical illustration of tools and concepts, group work on case studies (all video based - and lively), feedback, and selective work on individual issues in pairs. Team involvement and working enable a strategy to be created from start to finish. The Training is based on the 4 mat systems to enable complete learning.
