Certification Process

DRI International certifies individuals and provides various levels of active professional certification in a number of areas. Our certifications are the standards of excellence in business continuity management. Certifications acknowledge an individual’s effort to achieve a professional level of competency in the industry. While individuals’ motives may vary, there are numerous reasons for seeking certification including personal and professional satisfaction, employer recognition and financial gain. 


Certification is a two-step process i.e. verification of knowledge + confirmation of experience:

Step 1. The receipt of a passing grade certificate is sufficient to verify a candidate’s knowledge of the subject matter.

Step 2.  For DRI International certification, an application is required to confirm the experience of a candidate.

DRI Switzerland is the authorized provider of selected DRI Courses and Examinations. 

On successful completion of the Exam (Step 1) the candidate qualifies to submit a certification application to DRI International (Step 2). Work experience determines the certification level to which the candidate may apply.
