“BRCCI's course is one of the most important training programs I have attended in my business career. The methodology was presented in a very organized and logical fashion, made understandable by the very experienced instructor.

- Barbara D. // MBA, ARM, CBRM, Risk Manager, TAP Pharmaceutical

“Just wanted to touch base and let you know how much I enjoyed the training this past week. Mr. Wellman was an excellent instructor. There was a lot of information to get through in 2 days. However, with his knowledge and background in the industry, he was able to tie topics together with his own experiences - this added a greater level of depth and relevancy to the training. Excellent experience.”

- Daniel Lipps // BCRM Attendee

Testimonials – from participants who attended Dr. Syed’s training

“The course was presented in a logical, even paced format by an instructor who took the time to understand your environment and how BCP would relate to you. Thoroughly enjoyed the class. I know that you train people for a living, but if there were more trainers like you, I think career education would be better off.”

- Steven Ruffolo // Technical Lead | Veritiv Corporation

“I just wanted to send you a thank you for the CBRM Seminar instruction. When I returned to work on Tuesday, I passed along to my boss and coworkers that the course and instructor were excellent. One of my peers even said, "Wow, you NEVER say that about a training course." Having a background in training, I'm a pretty tough judge when it comes to external training seminars. The course surpassed my expectations.”

- Lesley S. // CBRM Operational Risk/Compliance, M&T Bank

“I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and, in particular, Dr. Syed, for the impressive curriculums that were presented last week. I had the privilege of sitting Dr. Syed's seminar for the CBRM as well as the CBRA. In short, they were both well-structured to present complex processes and concepts in a cohesive, concise and logical order. Moreover, the two curriculums will serve as the primary drivers for how I structure my internal Business Continuity/Resiliency models as well as my auditing techniques. The "takeaways" from both classes are superb in terms of ease of use and clarity of logic. Of note, the seminar setting offered an intellectual intimacy that fostered solid discussion and direct dialog on the complex topics presented. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would most certainly recommend and encourage attendance to both seminars. Well Done!”

 - John Kunert, DKI Services

- Larry M., Facilities Director, CalSTRS.

"This is one of the best courses I have taken in my 30+ years in Information Technology. The course was very organized and informative.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like quality Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery training."
