Amongst other things this course aims to help you understand advanced conceptual analysis, understand and apply theories and models and provide you with a wide and thorough grounding in theory and practice. The programme offers significant benefits as it is a recognised validation of Continuing Professional Development in the field of Emergency Planning, Response and Management. You will assimilate key ideas and concepts relating to risk management and, crucially, how these can be applied to the 'real world' of planning and responding to novel or unforeseen events. The course is the first of its kind in the UK and offers you the opportunity to combine cutting edge theoretical material with the study of practical scenarios and issues in Emergency Planning offered by the Cabinet Office's Emergency Planning College.
