MCDEM Workshops

MCDEM delivers regular interactive workshops for Controllers, Recovery Managers and Public Information Managers to assist them to enhance their skills and share information, experiences, ideas and good practice.

The workshops are designed in line with the
CDEM Competency Framework and role maps. Attending a MCDEM workshop is one part of a CDEM professional’s learning and development to perform their role.

There’s no cost to attend the workshops but participants or their employers need to organise and fund travel, accommodation and related expenses.
