Raising the BCM platform of common Knowledge, Certification and Standards

About DRI International & DRI ANZ

The Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRI International www.drii.org) is the oldest and largest educational and certification non-profit organization in the world committed to promoting a base of common knowledge for the Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Management industry. For more than 20 years DRI International has set the standard for professionalism in business continuity planning and has provided the profession’s premier certification and education. To date we have more than 11,000 active Business Continuity professionals and members in good standing in the world. Our copyrighted educational program is conducted over 40 countries via our International affiliates. Our certifications ensure employers that certified professionals have an in-depth understanding of business continuity as they must maintain their level of knowledge through continuing education in order to maintain their certifications. DRI International is the only Business Continuity certification recognized by the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). It is our mission and commitment to serve the educational, certification and standards in Business Continuity Planning and Management globally based on International Standards and Best Practices.

DRI International is an accredited Standards Development Organization serving on committees and panels that provide guidance to both private and government sectors in formulating standards and regulations. Our participation guarantees that business continuity professionals will have an active voice in discussions that will define the future of our profession.

Our programs are derived from the DRI International’s one standing commission made up of highly motivated volunteer-commissioners working on the policies and procedures, developing and monitoring existing and future certifications and making recommendations to the Board of Directors for goals of the Associations. In the commission, the Certification Sub Committee is involved in overseeing the qualification exams and interview or application procedures necessary for certification. The Education Sub Committee is charged with reviewing course content, delivery methods, maintaining high standards for course materials and instructors, and planning for future course needs and delivery systems.

DRI-Australia (www.dri-anz.org) had a low profile during the 2000s.  A revitalised organisation, team and training program has been initiated to support the business continuity community with the world’s most sought after business continuity and disaster recovery industry certification – Certified Business Continuity Professional.

DRI-Australia supports individuals and organisations with training and certification programs that are industry and community recognised.  A public course schedule covers the major cities and interest areas.  This can be extended to meet demand for courses and certification exams.  Closed or in-house programs are offered throughout Australia, delivered by a team of experienced business continuity professionals.
