BCM801 Effective Business Continuity & Resiliency Management (BCM801)

This is our Certificate in Effective Business Continuity & Resiliency Management online course. It is equivalent to our 3-day, in-person course BCM-801. It includes the BCMP (Business Continuity Management Planner) exam and designation for free ($ 500 value).

This course is intended for someone who would like a 21st century approach to learning about BCM using the recently revised International BCM Standard ISO 22301.

Our Certificate in Effective Business Continuity & Resiliency Management is recommended for anyone who needs a thorough grounding in the principles and methodologies of Business Continuity Planning.

This course is accredited by the National Institute for Business Continuity Management (https://www.NIBCM.net) and leads to their professional designation of Business Continuity Management Planner (BCMP) designation, as well as our Certificate in Business Continuity & Resiliency Management.

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

The course is comprised of 21 lessons, of which the first 17 address the PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT management systems lifecycle of ISO 22301, and the additional 4 mini-lessons address other topics relevant to any study of business continuity planning. Participants normally have 6 months from the date of registration to complete the course and take the BCMP exam (although most get it done much quicker than that). The course also provides asynchronous interaction with the course instructor for assignments and any questions that may arise.
