ISO 22301 is the international standard for Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). It protects enterprises by ensuring they are ready to detect and prevent threats.

Exam & Certification FAQs

Is training mandatory?

No, training is not mandatory. However, candidates will be better prepared for the examination with the help of training. Moreover, those who attend a training course can retake the exam for free within 12 months from the initial exam date.


When will I get my certification examination results?

You can expect your results via email between two to four weeks. However, keep in mind that you will only be provided with two possible exam results – pass or fail – rather than an exact grade.

In case of exam failure, candidates will receive the results with the list of domains they did not attempt fully. That way, they can prepare better the next time.
