Become an Operations Leader – CBOL®
(Upgrade from CBOM®)
You can upgrade to the leader level BCI qualification the CBOL® - Certified BPO Operations Leader – minimum 24 months after attaining your CBOM® Certification. The following trends internationally may just help you take a better decision:
- After their first recertification, a majority of CBOM® certificants in Asia choose to upgrade to CBOL® rather than recertify for the second time, because the CBOL® begins suiting such professionals more third year onwards of their career as they move toward more senior roles in operations.
- Many CBOM® certificants choose to do both: recertify their CBOM® to keep their qualification alive; and also upgrade to CBOL® to prepare for a possible Operations 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 CBOL® is easy.
