Why become S-CMP-certified?

The demand for qualified crisis managers is increasing. With this qualification, you will be internationally recognised as a crisis manager who is able to implement and anchor a crisis management process. The Crisis Management Practitioner course will prepare you for a possible crisis by showing you how to identify, prioritise and manage events, and equipping you with the skills you need to build up resilience and effectively respond to the crisis.

For whom is the S-CMP certification?

This course is aimed at those who are or expect to be involved in crisis management, such as:


  • Crisis managers
  • Business continuity managers/ officers
  • Facility managers
  • Security managers


Finally, this certificate is intended to be an important career milestone for crisis management professionals, as it constitutes the second level of a complete and extensive Certified Crisis Management Officer certification track. Achieving the Crisis Management Practitioner certificate provides students with a solid knowledge to be able to continue with the Crisis Management Expert certificate, and advance their career to become a CCMO. Students who already possess medium-level crisis management knowledge can decide to start their training with the Expert level of the certification track.
