Training and Exercising

Why do emergency first responders and the military spend so much time on training?

Their roles are inherently driven by crisis with little or no notice. Organisations expecting top level “game day” performance from their crisis management teams (CMT) must focus on 3 distinct educational areas: 

  1. Foundational training that provides the core crisis management skills such as policy development, process, plan design, crisis anatomy and CMT roles.  
  2. Ongoing training with realistic scenarios that are tailored to the organisation’s industry. These are planned activities where the entire team is aware of training context.  
  3. An exercise regime that is meant to validate crisis management plans with realistic scenarios. Exercises should be run with little or no advance notice and require an external team to act as exercise controllers.  

We possess industry leading tools which address these three educational pillars of crisis management preparedness, including a collection of increasingly complex thematic scenarios. Scenarios are tailored for industry and/or client context, to ensure a realistic and impactful training experience.
