Why CBP

About CBP

The Certified Business Professional Program is an international industry credential that validates and develops the business professional. A typical candidate is a professional in pursuit of excellence and is committed to exceeding and surpassing all standards for the business professional. The CBP program establishes a foundation-level, industry-neutral certification for business professionals enabling employers and the candidate to have a platform to develop the CBP for targeted positions within corporations. The CBP also develops important life-skills that transcend the work environment into many aspects of living.

The workshops, lectures, simulations and hands-on sessions provide the training and learning environment to maximize the candidate's potential. The certification examination measures the skills and knowledge earned by the program.

The program was developed by industry-wide and cross platform job task analysis and consultation with key industry representatives to ensure the program’s effectiveness and applicability. This ensures that the candidate is exposed to functional business tasks and gains practical exposure to the work environment.
 

The Value of the CBP Certification

As many professionals pursue their careers in the workplace, there is a need to differentiate between “ordinary employment seekers” and “certified professionals”.

The CBP certification provides this differentiator by certifying that the professional can demonstrate specific skill sets. Candidates who demonstrate technical and business skills with a widely recognized certification are on the path to excellence and professional development.

Industry standards, business ethics and certification of professionals become critical to ensuring higher performance standards are achieved in the workplace. The CBP certification is the only certification that combines IT and business skills in one certification.
