Instructor-Led Training for Organizational Success
Risk and Strategic Management, Corp. (RSM) fields a team of high quality instructors to build organizational capability and, importantly, develop the skills and confidence enabling organizations to take ownership of learning on a sustainable, ongoing basis – with the associated benefits of reducing training spend, and fostering individuals’ professional development as trainers.
RSM has extensive professional experience in designing bespoke training and awareness programs; whether in business continuity management, security risk and emergency management, HSSE, Train the Trainer, ethics and compliance, policy writing, health care and first aid, stress trauma, program management, driver safety and cyber and information security; or specific training for defined industries and sectors such as oil and gas, manufacturing, construction and the development and NGO sector.
The RSM Approach
Our team of experts can develop programs of instruction by digesting and consolidating content from existing policies, plans, protocols, procedures or training content, or our researchers can source and research the necessary subject matter as the foundation of instruction. As policy designers we leverage our deep understanding of organizational requirements and the development of associated policies, plans and procedures to enhance our training and exercising strategies.
RSM removes effort and stress from organizations, needing to know only the focus and training objectives of the program of instruction; building out from this to provide instructor and participant training lessons, exercises and tests (in any language).
