Why this training?

At CoThink, we have now resolved hundreds of major incidents and taken the major incident management process in several organizations to the next level.

We believe in learning by doing. That's why we combine concepts and theory with, above all, lots of practice. We reflect everything we offer in the training on your specific situation. ITIL already tells you who should do what and when in case of an incident. But ITIL does not tell you how to do it properly. That is precisely what is so important when the time pressure is high and the problems are more complex. We teach you this in our challenging training Major Incident Management. Feel free to contact Martijn Maas to discuss the possibilities.


  • More direction, more structure, more result
  • Learn from highly experienced major incident managers
