Qualifying Examination

Antes de que puedan aplicar por cualquier nivel de certificación, los profesionales y los vendedores de Continuidad de Negocio tienen que obtener una calificación aprobatoria del Examen de Calificación. La certificación es un proceso que consta de dos partes. El Examen de Calificación del DRI Internacional es la primera parte de este proceso, y es el único examen profesional de la planificación de la continuidad del negocio. El Examen de Calificación tiene un formato de selección única y cubre las áreas de especialidad de “Las Prácticas Profesionales Principales” para los practicantes de la continuidad del negocio. La duración del examen es de 2 ½ horas (dos horas y media) y se requiere una calificación aprobatoria. Después de recibir una calificación aprobatoria del Examen de Calificación, se puede aplicar por las certificaciones que corresponden con el examen. El pago del examen está incluido en el precio de muchos de los cursos del DRI Internacional. Se recomienda, pero no es obligatorio en todas las localidades, que se tome un curso educativo del DRI Internacional en la Planificación de la Continuidad del Negocio previo a tomar el examen. En Asia, Australia, America Latina, Medio Oriente y otros mercados seleccionados, los exámenes son ofrecidos solamente en conjunto con cursos de entrenamiento.

Master's Case Study Examination

Only professionals who have already passed the Qualifying Examination, and who have a minimum of five years of experience may register for the Master's Case Study Examination.

DRI administers the only Master's-level professional examination in Business Continuity Planning. The Master's Case Study Examination consists of a company's business continuity planning needs covering every aspect of the ten subject areas contained in the industry's body of knowledge, the Professional Practices for Business Continuity Management. Students should allow 4.5 hours to complete the written exam. Successful completion of the examination, a score of 75% or better, qualifies an individual to apply for MBCP designation.

Notice to Veterans

Many benefits are available to advance the education and skills of Veterans and Service members. One benefit is reimbursement for the cost of the DRI Qualifying Examination. Currently, VA reimburses for the test costs, or up to $2,000 for each test. There is no limit to the number of tests you may take, or number of times you may take the same test. And, VA will pay for tests even if you fail them. DRI also offers active duty service members and veterans the opportunity to retake the test for free for the first time if necessary.

You may receive reimbursement for approved licensing and certification tests if you qualify for Veteran's education benefits such as the Montgomery GI Bill. To apply for this approved VA Education benefit, please contact the VA. All exam opportunities on the public calendar and DRI exam are available for the GI Bill program. Don't forget to ask your VA representative about dependent benefits. For more information, please refer to the VA website here and here.
