[BL-DR-5] What is a DRP-5000 Blended Learning Course?

Given the COVID-19 outbreak, participants to BCM Institute is asking our participants:  Should I attend the four-day "brick-and-mortar" [DRP-5000]  or the blended learning advanced level disaster recovery course: IT Disaster Recovery" course [BL-DR-5]? that stretches over a period of 10 weeks?"  What are their differences? What should I know before enrolling on either of these courses? 

You are now viewing an advanced level IT disaster recovery course that starts you to be grounded on IT Disaster Recovery fundamentals first before understanding the disaster recovery concepts and the IT DR planning processes to develop and implement the IT DR plan.  Finally, you will be expected to have a detailed understanding of what encompasses the continuous maintenance or upgrading of your IT DR Programme.

Blended Learning for IT Disaster Recovery

IC_BL-DR-5_DRP5000As a socially responsible institute and a proponent of continuous learning, BCM Institute now offers participants the choice to attend its equally rigorous, "DRP-5000 Blended Learning" or "IT Disaster Recovery Expert Implementer" course. This alternative approach combines online educational materials and virtual interaction between the facilitator and participants. As opposed to our physical "brick-and-mortar" course,  participants now have some degree of control of the class in terms of its time, place, path, or pace.

In spite of being virtual, there is a balance between knowledge-based acquisition activities, presentations, discussions, exercises and case studies. About two-thirds of the time is spent on activity-based learning. You are expected to complete live templates and be able to be discussed and reviewed by our expert facilitators.

What are the Differences and Concerns?

Concerns: The major concern with blended learning is that it is going to be another direct conversion to eLearning training over video channel,  The entire process is designed such that the content will provide the same outcome.

Instructors: Do note that instructors delivering the modules remain the same as the onsite training.  You will be learning from more than 3 instructors who manage IT DR progamme in their own organisation. 

International Participation: Another major change will be the participation of more international delegates as compared to the traditional majority of Asian participants.  Be expected to discuss and work as teams from different parts of the world.  The richness in the sharing has always been the strength of our courses.

Readings: Be expected to have more pre-readings as the objective is to ensure that knowledge that could be acquired via reading should be done outside the training session.  More time is allocated to share experiences from the participants and facilitators.
