Certification Program

Why Get Certified?

The critical need for Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery programs in organizations world-wide has fueled the demand for highly qualified professionals.
Credentials earned through BRCCI are internationally respected and will help to propel your career in the field of Business Continuity and Resiliency.

The scope of our certification program covers three core areas:

MABR

Master’s Achievement in Business Resilience (MABR) is the highest level designation signifying extensive and broad experience, knowledge, and competency in the field of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.
Certified Business Resilience Manager (CBRM) recognizes a high degree of competency and skills in managing business continuity programs.
Certified Business Resilience IT Professional (CBRITP) demonstrates an in-depth knowledge and insight in managing IT disaster recovery programs.
Certified Business Resilience Audit (CBRA) exemplifies a high calibre of knowledge and competency in conducting an assessment and audit of BC and IT DR.

HOW TO BECOME CERTIFIED

To become certified for either CBRM, CBRITP, or CBRA, you will need to pass a certification exam for your chosen credential. You will be notified of the results of your exam within two weeks. A certificate is shipped out within two to four weeks of the exam. In case you are not able to pass the exam, you will be allowed to have one retake of the exam at no additional charge within one year period of the first exam. MABR certification process does not require taking an exam. Read More about MABR certification process

Our recommended option is to combine training together with the exam. Each of our training – 3-day CBRM3-day CBRITP, and 2-day CBRA – include optional exams on the last day of the training. The exam questions cover the information and concepts presented during the training. The training fee includes the optional certification exam processing fee

In this option, you will need to register and attend an exam without enrolling in a seminar. With this exam-only option, we will provide you with supplementary exam preparation and study material. Find out more about attending an exam: (CBRM CBRITP and CBRA )

To register for an exam or for a combined training with an exam, you will need to first select an event from the list of schedules (See the Seminar schedule). The payment options are listed with each event within the schedule. Alternatively, you may also reserve a seat using this RESERVE A SEAT form and we will then provide you with required information. The above applies to CBRM, CBRITP, and CBRA certification, while MABR certification follows a separate process. Read More about MABR certification process
