How does BCM Institute differ from others?
BCM Institute’s keen understanding of BCM Audit/BC/CM/DR training needs at the various levels - is our unique offering. The Institute also offers opportunities for those who at their respective levels of experience, to be recognized and be certified. Our philosophy is to ensure that the most cost effective means of training are made available as usually, the staff with junior grades is often not provided with these opportunities. The progressive upgrade of experience can now be complement with the appropriate training and certification.
The Institute’s just-in-time training and for-the-right experience level approach will assure any organization that their employee should be able to attend the appropriate tiered training whenever they are appointed. As we understand from listening to our customers, due to the frequent turnover of staff or the staff being upgraded to higher BC or Disaster Recovery responsibilities, this staff member will need to be trained before he or she is deployed. Prior to our offering, in most organizations, this is not happening as they are usually being told to do the job and being a good corporate member, they will be trying their best to make it successful. As we know, trying your best without the basic skill and knowledge will not get you too far in being successful in any project and that’s one of the key characteristics of BC and Disaster Recovery programs failing due to the lack of knowledge by the Project manager itself.
For-the-Right Experience Level
Another important differentiation is that the training should be based on what the job requires you to do. Over training of staff may result in a waste of training budget. A Business Unit BCM Coordinator (representing the department or division) will be attending the right course such as the BCM-330 level course and as part of his or her career advancement or increased in responsibilities, this candidate will be attending the next level course which is the BCM-430 course as the knowledge required by this candidate will be at the expert level.
For Specialized Skill sets within the BCM Domain
The institute is also passionate about professionals who are performing BCM activities but cover majority of their time in areas such as disaster recovery and auditing. Here, two different sets of certification are implemented to meet their specific requirement. The training and certification process follows the same rigor as the BCM certification.
