Business Continuity Professional 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 International Standard ISO 22301, we believe our courses “BCM-801: Certificate in Business Continuity & Resiliency Management” and "BCM-901: Diploma in Business Continuity & Resiliency Management" are the very best business continuity training workshops offered anywhere in the world.

BENEFITS OF BECOMING CERTIFIED

  • Your knowledge and experience are impartially validated by the NIBCM;
  • Evidences your familiarity with the Standard for Business Continuity Management ;
  • Enhances your career prospects and gives you an edge in competitive situations ;
  • Grants a credential developed against ISO and ANSI standards;
  • Demonstrates your commitment to personal career growth and professional development in the the field of BCM

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. We also give you the software tools to do the job. And then we will do our very best to ensure you become a certified Business Continuity professional!

  • 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 these courses with our 350+ page workbook and our famous 32G BCM FlashDrive with thousands of BCM 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. These sell individually for over $ 1000 and all course participants receive them for free.

These courses are fully accredited by the National Institute for Business Continuity Management to satisfy the experience requirements of the BCMP and BCRP designations. So even if you are brand-new to BCM, we can help you become Certified!

The exam fees for these designation are embedded into the course fee. IBCT has enjoyed virtually 100% success preparing course participants for these exams. Indeed, all course participants receive our "Success Guarantee" -for any reason, should you not pass the exam on the first try, IBCT will pay for any subsequent attempts (normally $ 500) until you do succeed - no questions asked.

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. These courses can help you.

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 BCMP exam, the Business Continuity Management Planner (BCMP) designation, or on successful completion of the BCRP exam, the Business Continuity & Resiliency Professional (BCRP) designation.
