Challenging the strategic thinker
Step outside your comfort zone and really challenge your thinking in a safe and supportive environment. Leave with the confidence, knowledge and skills to know you can walk back into a strategic co-ordinating role and be effective immediately.
It provides the ideal opportunity for individuals to acquire and practice decision making skills and competences before participating in team exercises.
Delegates should have, or be aspiring to, a role at the local strategic level of emergency management. The challenges presented on the course will appeal to strategic thinkers, even if they have relatively little experience of civil protection.
