Become an Business Leader – CBBL‌®

(Upgrade from CBOL‌®)

You can upgrade to the highest BCI credential – the CBBL‌® - Certified BPO Business Leader - minimum 24 months after attaining your CBOL‌® Certification. The following trends internationally may just help you take a better decision:

  • After their first recertification, a majority of CBOL‌® certificants choose to upgrade to CBBL‌® rather than recertify for the second time, because the CBBL‌® begins suiting such professionals more third year onwards of their career as they move toward CEO or business head positions.
  • Many CBOL‌® certificants choose to do both: recertify their CBOL‌® to keep their qualification alive; and also upgrade to CBBL‌® to prepare for a possible business head/leader role sooner than later. In case you desire to do both, do watch out for interesting offers by BCI partners reaching you through emails.

Upgrading to CBBL‌® is easy. Again, there will be frequent reminder emails from BCI and from other BCI partners associated with you and you simply have to click the links mentioned in these communications, or log into your BCI account and register for your upgrade to CBBL‌®.
