SANTA CLARA, CA and LOMBARD, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/13 -- Resilinc Corp., the leading provider of supply chain resiliency solutions, and the International Consortium for Organizational Resilience (ICOR), an international non-profit professional development and credentialing organization, today announced that they have formed a new strategic partnership to design and deliver a next-generation supply chain resiliency course.
The updated Supply Chain Resiliency Management course (SCRM 2000) is designed to ensure that all students have a complete understanding of the supply chain risk and resiliency practices and techniques used by leading companies today. Offered as a "live" eLearning course over a two-week timeframe, SCRM 2000 combines the benefits of "learning from home" and interaction with a "live" classroom environment using ICOR's interactive eLearning education system.
Supply chain resiliency is the ability of a company to protect the continuity of supply and achieve sustained operational performance in the event of global multi-tier disruptions of any type at any frequency from ongoing to catastrophic. SCRM 2000 aligns to the guidance and requirements of ISO 28000, PD 25222, & ISO 31000. After completing this course, students will be able to apply supply chain resiliency techniques and best practices to their organization or to their consulting practice.
The course is intended for individuals who are currently engaged in supply chain or procurement functions, business continuity and risk management, or who are in other functional areas but have an interest in gaining additional insights regarding proactively addressing future supply chain disruptions. The Supply Chain Risk Associate Certificate is issued by ICOR and the certificate is accredited by The American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
"Resilinc is excited to join forces with ICOR to deliver next-generation supply chain resiliency accredited courses to the global practitioner community. ICOR's comprehensive accredited curriculum combined with Resilinc's deep experience in supply chain risk management will be a truly unique educational experience," said Bindiya Vakil, CEO of Resilinc.
"ICOR's mission is to 'build resilient communities one organization at a time' and training the next-generation of supply chain risk professionals is an essential element of building a resilient organization. We believe the alliance between Resilinc and ICOR will be of tremendous value to practitioners globally," said Lynnda M. Nelson, President at ICOR.
