Don't let your organization get left in the dark when the unexpected happens. Preparing your organization to continue operating during and after an emergency demands planning in multiple areas, including information technology security, crisis communications, and finance and operations management. This course sheds light on the principles of risk management and how to integrate your strategic planning and implementation across organizational areas. Build on a risk-management framework to mitigate risk, prepare for emergencies, and respond to and recover from crisis.

To withdraw from any course in the program, notification must be provided to the course instructor and to administration (1-250-721-8558 or firstname.lastname@example.org). A course refund, minus a $75 administration fee, will only be provided within 6 calendar days after the course start date.

Credit vs non-credit
Credit refers to degree credit. If you are taking a course or program for credit through UVic Continuing Studies, it means that course or program provides credit towards a degree at UVic or another authorized university. Credit students have to meet certain criteria, such as being accepted to both UVic Continuing Studies and the University of Victoria.
