The Good Practice Guidelines (CBCI) Training Course

Course Details

This is the BCI course which provides the underpinning knowledge to pass the BCI exam. The EPC is a world-renowned, UK Cabinet Office-approved provider of national resilience training. Our training style is interactive and involves tutor presentations, group discussions and exercises as well as individual tests supplied by the BCI that help confirm your understanding and prepare you for the exam.

Other providers deliver this course over five days but the EPC, using its residential setting is approved to deliver the knowledge in an intensive three day course. Mock exams are used to help you prepare for the real exam which takes place the day after this course finishes.
