InfoSecurity & Governance Training

URM Consulting Services (URM) is one of the UK's most trusted training providers in the areas of information security and governance, business continuity, risk management, data protection and software asset management.

We can offer classroom-based and online training courses, as well as an e-learning management solution (using an in-house developed Alurna product).

Classroom-Based Courses are Split Into 2 General Types

1. Professional Certificate Courses

These courses have been certified by one or more of the following independent certification bodies {BCS The Chartered Institute for IT, National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Certified Training Scheme}.

You can attend either a classroom-based residential course or an online course. Following either format of the course, you can sit an independently administered exam.

By passing the exam, you will be awarded a certificate.

Courses are ideal for not only developing your skills but also demonstrating your competence:

2. Non-certificate Courses

These courses are typically 1 or 2 days in length, are non-residential and provide awareness and introductions to a range of topics, including ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 implementation and auditing, and data protection.

These courses are typically closed on-site courses with course content tailored to an organisation’s requirements.

Continuous Improvement

As with all URM’s services, we work on a continuous improvement model.

Every course concludes with delegates completing a feedback form which addresses all aspects of the training experience from training material, trainer, visual aids, administration and venue.

The feedback forms are carefully reviewed, along with trainer feedback and selective delegate interviews to identify how training can be incrementally improved.

URM’s Trainers

Our courses are all delivered by experienced practitioners, so you will not only learn the best practice theory, but also pragmatic advice on real-world implementation.

The goal of our professional certificate courses is not only to prepare you to pass the end of course exam, but to return to your organisation and make a significant contribution to your relevant practice area.

Our professional certificate courses are all residential and trainers are available outside of training hours for further discussion or questions.


One area where we continue to get positive feedback is in the support we provide outside of the classroom.

The training administration team will do everything in their powers to ensure your experience from initial enquiry, booking, accommodating any special requirements, through to attending the course, is as smooth and straightforward as possible.

URM’s Training Manager attends the first day of each of the professional certificate courses and is available to address any non-training related queries.

Training Venues

We go to great lengths to ensure that the whole training experience is as positive as possible and the selection of venues is a key ingredient.

All training venues have been selected for providing an ideal, distraction-free learning environment, both within and outside of the classroom.

Refreshments and snacks are available throughout the day to ensure you remain hydrated and energised! Hot and cold buffet selections are provided for lunch and, for those opting to stay onsite, you can enjoy a 3-course dinner in the evening.

All accommodation is onsite with comfortable, en suite bedrooms.
