Expansion in BCI exam centres

The Business Continuity Institute : 28 July, 2009  (Company News)
Through partnerships, the Business Continuity Institute is now offering credential exams in 75 countries across the world
The Business Continuity Institute (BCI), an organisation for setting and validating standards of professional competence and ethics in business continuity management, has announced an agreement with testing services leader Professional Examination Service (PES) and its delivery partner Prometric that expands the number of exam locations for BCI's professional certificates to more than 400 in more than 75 countries.

Through Prometric's worldwide computer-based test delivery network, BCI now has professional certificate exam centers in Africa, China, Europe, India, Japan, Latin America, Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Canada and the U.S. Exams are offered on an ongoing basis in the morning and afternoon with limited evening and weekend sessions.

PES, a non-profit corporation dedicated to ensuring the quality of credentialing processes, will now oversee exam development, scoring and psychometrics, and ensure the ongoing integrity of the BCI examinations.

"BCI is pleased to be working with Prometric and PES because they can assist in managing the administration of our credential on a truly international scale," said Lorraine Darke, executive director of BCI. "The BCI Certificate, leading to the CBCI, is the cornerstone of our professional membership, and an international network of high-quality examination venues will ensure growth in BCI membership and the professional community of business continuity practitioners."

Linda Waters, Prometric's vice president for associations business, said, "Prometric has unmatched expertise in expanding credentialing programs internationally, and we look forward to working closely with PES to meet the delivery needs of BCI on a global basis."

PES President Dr Leon Smith added, "Working closely with clients to develop and maintain valid, defensible credentialing assessments, and ensure the ongoing integrity and security of their intellectual property is perhaps PES's highest calling as a mission-driven, not-for-profit credentialing services company. We are delighted to be partnering with BCI in this endeavour."

BCI also announced the launch of its revised portal with a new design and additional content, including educational resources for those studying for a BCI certificate exam and an industry events calendar.
