This is our recently REVISED Diploma in Business Continuity Management online course. It is based on, and the content is identical to, our 5-day in-person ECP-901 course.

This course is one of the most comprehensive BCMS courses available anywhere, and is intended for someone who needs a detailed, methodology-based 21st century approach to learn about BCMS, using the recently revised International BCM Standard ISO 22301.

This course includes the Business Continuity Management Planner (BCMP) certification exam, which is comprised of 100 questions (True/False and Multiple Choice) and runs 90 minutes in length. If you complete the course and receive 70% on BCMP exam, you will receive the certification.

The course covers all 4 areas of the Plan-Do-Check-Act management lifecycle used by ISO 22301, training participants in best practices as well as best principles; for Business Continuity Planning. Participants receive the knowledge and tools needed to develop a business continuity program for their organization. Plus it includes 4 sessions on IT Disaster Recovery and Cyber Security Planning.

Participants who complete this online course are also awarded our Diploma in Business Continuity Management.

There are 5 main topics, organized into over 30 lessons of approximately 1 hour each, plus optional homework and quizzes. You should plan to spend at least 25 hours on the course. The individual lessons can be studied at your own pace and, if you need extra time, you have one full year to complete the program (most get it done within a month).

The course includes a Practice Exam for the BCMP as well as the BCMP Exam itself. The individual lessons can be studied at your own pace and you have one full year to complete the program (most get it done within a month).

Our Success Guarantee includes the promise that should you not pass the BCMP exam in the first try - for any reasons, no questions asked - IBCT will pay for any subsequent attempts until you do succeed.
