Do you audit ISO 22301:2012-based business continuity management systems? Want to demonstrate that you are a business continuity expert?

Exemplar Global’s Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS) Auditor certification program can give you the international recognition you need to stand out from the crowd.

Any organization, regardless of type or size, is at risk of major disruption resulting from technical failures, natural disasters, human error, or intentional hostile acts. Such incidents can result in such catastrophes as financial failure, permanent loss of business, property damage, human injuries, and even loss of life.

ISO 22301:2012 is the global standard for management systems that are intended not only to decrease the likelihood of such incidents, but also reduce the damage to an organization if they do occur.

Through extensive examination of your knowledge, work experience, and competence to audit, Exemplar Global BCMS Auditor certification can give you proof of your competence to effectively conduct BCMS audits using ISO 22301:2012.

The program provides international recognition for auditors who conduct business continuity management system audits using national or international management system standards, or other management system standards and normative and industry references recognized by Exemplar Global.
