Be part of our community of certified professionals in Business Continuity
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 whether you are a practitioner, vendor or auditor. 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-part process; verification of knowledge and confirmation of experience.
- The receipt of a passing grade certificate is sufficient to verify a candidate’s knowledge of the subject matter.
- For a DRI International certification, an application may be required to confirm the experience of a candidate.

Certification Retirement provides a means for professionals to maintain certification for periods of time when they are not working directly in the field or they are retiring from the industry. There are many excellent reasons for retiring your certification, but letting it lapse is always a mistake.
