The global reach of the Business Continuity Institute

In its 22 year history, the Business Continuity Institute has grown to become a truly global organization, and this is clearly reflected in the Institute’s membership demographics which show that now only 40% of members come from the UK where the organization was founded.

It is also reflected in the latest CBCI Online course which began earlier this month, with eleven different nationalities represented within a single class. This is testament to the Institute’s efforts to make the CBCI credential available to everyone, regardless of location.

Nicky Tramaseur, Senior Education and Events Manager at the BCI, commented: “We have always said that we want the BCI experience to be available to everyone, and I am delighted we are able to use the latest technology in order to achieve this. Disruptions occur all across the world, so it is vital that people from all across the world are properly trained to help their organizations manage through these disruptions.

Getting your CBCI credential is an important step to developing a career in business continuity, but attending a course venue or taking a week off work is not always an option. This is why the BCI developed the CBCI Online course as a new way of learning. Created in partnership with Bucks New University, it allows each student to take the course wherever they can get online, whether that is at work, home or perhaps even in a coffee shop.
