Overview of OR-5000 Blended Learning [BL-OR-5] Course
While professionals generally still prefer to attend an onsite classroom-based course with a facilitator or instructor being present, (electronic) online video face-to-face workshop practices are fast gaining momentum.

Breakdown of the Time Spent
Operational Resilience for Financial Institutions
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, an array of regulatory developments impacting the financial services industry, such as refining the management of disruptions, increasing interconnectedness and third-party/ outsourcing dependencies and dependencies on IT. This continues to emphasize that operational resilience will remain a significant concern for the board, regulators, policymakers, investors and customers.
The challenge is organizations' approaches to dealing with differing regulations globally. In terms of resilience structure, organizations have looked at their governance frameworks and ensured they are fit for purpose, as well as utilizing stress and scenario testing to assess their capabilities which is more than their existing business continuity and crisis management programs.
What are the Differences and Concerns?
Concerns: The primary concern with blended learning is that it is going to be another eLearning training with the exact number of teaching days as per the "onsite course" over the video channel,
The entire process is re-designed with pre-reading (at your own time and pace), and preparatory work (rather than spending one hour doing the work in class), supported by proprietary guidance notes. In fact, after several cohorts, the content who had attended our other advanced level courses are highlighting a better to provide the same outcome.
Instructors: Do note that instructors delivering the modules remain the same as the onsite training. At BCM Institute, most of our instructors are still practicing BCM and Risk Management professionals (in this case, operational resilience and operational risk) with a minimum of 12 years of direct BCM experience as they are holding or holding regional or global resilience responsibilities.
International Participation: Another significant change will be the participation of more international delegates compared to the traditional majority of Asian participants. Be expected to discuss and work as teams from different parts of the world.
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 sharing experiences between the participants and facilitators.
