Certifying training

Know the standard

How we can help you

Kick-start your career with CBCI training. Get recognised. Book your place today and start studying to obtain a certification that’s recognised by organizations across the world.

Make sure your BCM team members are familiar with the latest standards and best practice. There is no one-good-way to implement BCM into your organisation. Every organisation is different and has to do what’s right for them.

Depending on background, for example in IT, Risk management, Compliance, Cyber security, Facility Management, Security, COO, HR or front-office, people often have very different ideas on what BCM is or should be, and how to approach it. Being BCM-certified assures a broader view and familiarity with standard and good practices, so that you can then make a well-informed decision on how to best manage BCM in your organisation.

Our senior trainers are not only certified themselves, but also have decades of professional practical experience, working in a variety of organisations.
