Supply Chain Resilience Management Elearning Course: SCRM 2000

Supply Chain Resilience Management Elearning Course 
 
ICOR and Resilinc, Corp have partnered to bring you the world's only elearning course that focuses on the mitigation of supply chain risk. With the recent world-wide disasters that have severely impacted supply chains globally, it is time to learn how to mitigate supply chain risk. 

Supply Chain Resilience Management course (SCRM 2000) is designed to ensure that all students have a complete understanding of the supply chain risk and resiliency practices and techniques used by leading companies today. Offered as a "live" eLearning course over a two-week timeframe, SCRM 2000 combines the benefits of "learning from home" and interaction with a "live" classroom environment using ICOR's interactive eLearning education system.

Supply chain resilience is the ability of a company to protect the continuity of supply and achieve sustained operational performance in the event of global multi-tier disruptions of any type at any frequency from ongoing to catastrophic. SCRM 2000 aligns to the guidance and requirements of ISO 28000, PD 25222, & ISO 31000. After completing this course, students will be able to apply supply chain resiliency techniques and best practices to their organization or to their consulting practice.    

The course is intended for individuals who are currently engaged in supply chain or procurement functions, business continuity and risk management, or who are in other functional areas but have an interest in gaining additional insights regarding proactively addressing future supply chain disruptions.
