Toronto, ON: August 17, 2022. Today, the Ecclesiastical Specialist School™ is launching a new training module – Business Continuity Planning. Available free of charge, the training module explores how a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan can assist your organization in returning to normal operations within a manageable timeframe and in a cost-effective way. A detailed Business Continuity Plan ensures that you are able to continue serving your clients and community, while protecting the safety of your staff and volunteers.

The training module includes an overview of the key considerations, risk factors, and steps to take when coping with a major disaster or event, as well as practical steps that you can take in the immediate aftermath of the event and in the days, weeks and months that follow, as your organization recovers and returns to normal operations.

Finally, you can test your knowledge with a quick quiz, and you’ll then be able to download a personalized certificate for completing the training. 

“At Ecclesiastical, we take risk management very seriously,” said Colin Robertson, Chief Underwriting Officer and Vice President, Risk Control. “We are here to help our brokers and customers, and the Ecclesiastical Specialist School™, offers hands-on training for various risk management topics.”
