The Certified Business Continuity Professional is our most widely recognized and held business continuity certification in the world. CBCPs are professionals that have demonstrated both knowledge and skill in the business continuity/disaster recovery industry. For the most part, these professionals have been working in the industry as leaders and are looking for the recognition that comes with certification.

The certificate is designed for professionals experienced in the business continuity profession. The curriculum is designed in compliance with the Professional Practices for Business Continuity Planners in a four-week experience. The certificate does vary from the ordering of these practices with the objective of serving the BCM planner to understand the applicability of these practices within their job responsibilities. 

Who Should Attend? 

CBCP is designed for individuals who are responsible for their organizations’ BCM program. This certificate serves as a good platform for participants to share and exchange knowledge with the instructors and participants coming across industries. 


Successful graduates will be awarded the title of Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP) which can be used after their names as an internationally and locally recognised proof for their competent and professional skills. 

Entry Requirements

Experience is a key criterion in selecting the CBCP level because of the rapid pace and extensive materials covered during the class. The level requires more than two (2) years of experience. Applicants need to demonstrate specific and practical experience in two (2) of the relevant practice areas. Regular recertification requires an ongoing commitment to continuing education and industry activities which occurs on annual basis.

The certificate qualifications are delivered and assessed in English. If English is not your first language, we recommend you have an Academic IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent evidence of competence in the English language before beginning your studies.
