Certification

It is a fact of life today that you need to be certified in order to advance your career. It is not enough simply to know how to do the job; you have to be able to prove it through an independent 3rd party examination.

Drawing from the new International Standard ISO 22301, and incorporating both the BS 25999 British Standard, and the NFPA 1600 US Standard, we believe our course “ECP-601:  Effective Business Continuity Management” is the very best business continuity training offered anywhere in the world.

Participants learn how to initiate and manage a comprehensive BCP project—from start to finish! In addition to "best principles", you also learn "best practices" -  the   practical "how to" develop and maintain effective continuity plans. We teach you “what” you need to know plus “how” to do it. And then we will do our very best to ensure you become a Certified Continuity Manager!

ECP-601 Effective Business Continuity Management covers:

  • tools and techniques for conducting risk assessments and business  impact analysis
  • practical methodologies to design and manage effective continuity plans
  • case studies to examine real life situations and their solutions
  • guided study and group exercises to apply the lessons learned
  • methodologies for creating a plan to support your business in the face of any critical incident

You leave this course with our workbook and BCM software - thousands of templates, files, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations etc.  Participants also receive BIA templates and a complete and detailed business continuity plan with plan templates for their reference.

This course is fully accredited by the National Institute for Business Continuity Management to satisfy the experience requirements of the  CCM designation. So even if you are brand-new to BCM, we can help you become Certified!

Completion of this course qualifies participants to sit the certification exam to become a Certified Continuity Manager (CCM). IBCT has enjoyed virtually 100% success preparing course participants for this exam.

A typical course participant has less than two years of experience in business continuity planning!  They have been ‘volun-told’ into this new role and need to know how to successfully carry out these new duties.

The techniques and tools we provide are applicable to banking, insurance, manufacturing, health care, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, federal, state and local government organizations, in addition to international corporations and  agencies.

In addition, participants leave this course with our Diploma in Business Continuity Management, a Flashdrive full of BCP tools and, on successful completion of the CCM exam, the Certified Continuity Manager designation.
