Qualification……………………… SRF BTEC Level 4
Delivery……………………………. Classroom or live virtual training
Duration…………………………….Three days 

Acting confidently in a crisis is vital to protect your organisation. As the past year has demonstrated, there are outside factors which can have a catastrophic impact to organisations of all sizes and sectors. By being fully prepared using best-practice advice, you can work towards business resilience which will help in crisis situations. Please note, live virtual courses are delivered separately to classroom courses. Learners will not be able to dial in to a classroom course. 

Delivered over a three-day classroom course, this SRF BTEC Level 4 course in Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management training prepares learners of all backgrounds on how to effectively manage a crisis and to help prevent unexpected incidents.

You will work through the course to build a broad spectrum of key principles relating to Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management. It also deals with core aspects of ‘command and control’, including the composition and operation of the Crisis Management Team.

Our training focuses on practical skills and knowledge transfer, rather than simply the theory behind a concept. Under the guidance of a specialist tutor in this field, you will discuss with the group how the material covered is – or could be – relevant to you and your role. Importantly, the qualification gained from this training will give you a competitive advantage, as this is an internationally-recognised qualification.


For the SRF BTEC Level 4 accreditation, assessment is via a workbook and a written case study. This can be completed either during the course or up to two weeks after completion of the training. Your course tutor will guide you on getting the very best from this course and the assessment modules, which helps to ensure you leave the course with the confidence to act effectively in a crisis incident.
