About this course


New to crisis management and needing a toolkit to help you prepare to manage incidents?  Want to understand how UK Joint Doctrine can give you and your organisation a framework to keep on the right track when responding to a crisis?  

From severe weather incidents, to cyber-attacks and the COVID-19 pandemic, the active use of the Joint Doctrine can ensure you make justifiable and robust decisions in the face of uncertainty.
