Certification Model Overview

Competency Building Blocks

The Competency Level (CL) is a set of building blocks for BCM Institute's training and certification requirement. Each subject domain is broken into three distinct levels: Foundation (CL 1), Intermediate (CL 2) and Advanced (CL 3). There breakdown are as follows:

  • CL 1B, CL 2A and CL 3A for BCM Audit domain;
  • CL 1B, CL 2B and CL 3B for business continuity domain;
  • CL 1C, CL 2C and CL 3C for crisis management domain;
  • CL 1CC, CL 2CC and CL 3CC for crisis communication domain; and
  • CL 1D, CL 2D and CL 3D for disaster recovery domain respectively.

The arrangement of the tiers represents the increasing level of specificity and specialization of the BCM audit (A), business continuity (B), crisis management (C), crisis communication(CC), and disaster recovery (D) skills and knowledge content.
