Course Description
This course primarily equips individuals to audit BCM readiness using the ISO22301 standard as an internal (first, second and third party) auditor. This course is also relevant to any financial or IT auditors responsible for BCM. A BCM-ready business is highly regarded and prized as a supplier, largely because this company is deemed a reliable and sustainable partner for both the short and long haul. Becoming BCM-ready is a process businesses providing essential services to others cannot ignore, whether required as part of legal obligations stipulated in request for proposal (RFP)/ tender, or it is part of the corporate culture and ethos of the supplying organization. BCM Institute’s BCM-8031 internal audit course provides the audit framework that enables companies to develop and enhance their audit capabilities so as to meet its business requirement. This is primarily achieved through the equipping of internal auditors and Organization BCM Coordinators with the requisite skills, tools and knowledge to plan, control and eventually lead BCM-related audits in accordance with the requirements of ISO 22301 Standard.
