Working as a Decision - Loggist

How does your organisation approach the challenge of decision-logging? 

You know how important it is and you know it has to be done and done very well.  When something is that critical do you leave it to chance, hope for the best or just make do on the day?  You won’t achieve good practice in decision-logging by accident.  It starts with training.  If you are going to be given this job, then insist on this training. 

This 1-day course will help you know the context of the job, understand what good looks like and practice with a set of tools in an exercise.  Trying to do the job without the right training and skills is not a solution and it is not in the best interests of you, your leaders or your organisation.  Get trained and get trained by the best!

Course Details

Who should attend?

Those staff likely to fulfil the role of Decision-Loggist in an emergency. They may be completely new to civil protection and may well be "fractionals" (those with fractional time responsibilities in this field or those with a call-out/response role on an organisation's duty roster.)

It is particularly relevant to Cat 1 & 2 Responders, the voluntary sector, military with a UK Operations role, key partners from the CNI sector and the private sector.


By the end of the event you will be able to:

  • Explain the context in which the Decision -Loggist operates including the Civil Contingencies Act and guidance on Emergency Response and Recovery.
  • Describe the roles of the Decision-Loggist in an emergency response.
  • Act as a Decision-Loggist in a simulated emergency exercise


Although the course provides an overview of the civil contingencies context, the ICP course may also be of value although there would be some repetition. Other courses would depend on the extent to which delegates developed their careers in civil protection.
