Sit the exam. Kick-start your career. Get recognised. Passing the Certificate of the Business Continuity Institute (CBCI) is the first step in joining the BCI’s global network of business continuity and resilience professionals.

Get the credential to boost your career

The CBCI exam tests your knowledge of the Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) – the comprehensive guide to industry best practice for business continuity and resilience.

Sit the exam your way

You can sit the CBCI exam in two ways, simply pick the one that works best for you.

  • In person – take the exam at the end of the classroom-based GPG training course.
  • Online – sit the exam from home. You just need a webcam and a stable internet connection.

The next step

After passing the exam, your CBCI certification is valid for three years, subject to an annual membership fee.

Most professionals achieve the CBCI and then progress to more senior levels of BCI membership. For most, this will happen within three years. If you have not progressed after three years then you will need to re-sit the CBCI exam.

Study resources

We recommend you take the GPG training course to prepare for this exam. You can study in a classroom environment or online – whatever suits you.
