Experiencing this course with your colleagues is the best way to understand each other's roles within an incident, practice with those who will be working alongside you and build the everlasting relationships that will lead you to effective and efficient incident management.
Most incidents are small in nature and may not need a full IMS implemented to manage the incident itself, but in the event of an escalating or large incident, being familiar with a functioning IMS will support the in-field operations expediently. This course, customised to your company and operations, will develop your teams' preparedness to deal with a large-scale incident and tangible skills to manage an incident effectively and efficiently.
