Emergency Management Training Programmes

By channelling our 110+ years of experience managing complex international crises, Kenyon developed what is now the world's leading programme of emergency response and crisis management training. Kenyon provides training courses for all levels of staff, in most countries and in different languages.

Our training philosophy is simple. If your staff is not involved in day-to-day crisis management activities, then they need to be specially trained for these duties. Without training, you cannot expect your employees to be able to professionally respond and perform in a crisis situation.

The following Crisis Management training courses are offered by Kenyon:

Emergency Management Training

Core Crisis Management Training

Make the mental transition from the familiarities of normal business routines to the unknowns of working through a crisis. Key topics include the importance of communications, understanding team dynamics in a crisis and the decision-making process.

It focuses on the importance of consistency in call handing, data management and on effectively dealing with the various types of caller.

Emergency Response Plan Writing:

A capability assessment will be used to analyse the requirements of the ERP to ensure it meets all regulatory and investigation mandates.
