Local group offers businesses disaster recovery training

Long Island business owners who want their workplace to be ready -- and resilient -- in case of disaster can take part in a six-month series that starts Sept. 19 at the Adelphi University Hauppauge Center, 55 Kennedy Dr.

On the third Friday of each month, an expert on disaster recovery topics will lead a professional development and training session where participants team up to address different scenarios.

At the end of the six-part series, offered by the Long Island Chapter of the Association of Contingency Planners, attendees can test for a certificate offered by the Business Continuity Institute, an internationally-recognized group that helps businesses and organizations prepare for continuing their work.

Members of the ACP chapter can attend for free. Non-members can pay a one-time fee of $175 or pay in installments, with the first session costing $50 and sessions 2 through 6 costing $30 for a total $200. Go to to register.
