BCM Institute’s IT disaster recovery planning (IT DRP) certifications are available for all IT DRP professionals who would like to get their experience and competency validated by an independent certification body.
To obtain a crisis management certification, one has to fulfill the conditions:
Attain the relevant courses attached to the desired IT DRP certification
Pass the qualifying certification examination
Send in the appropriate certification application fees
Send in the certification application form detailing 3 or 5 (depending on desired certification) IT DRP experience in relation to the BCM Body of Knowledge (BoK)
Certification would then be awarded once the independent certification body is satisfied that all conditions are met. Certifications are then valid for 1 year after which yearly renewals are needed to ensure the validity of the certifcation.
