As we exit the endemic stage, BCM Institute is launching its "hybrid learning", a 50% brick-and-mortar and 50% online learning course schedule. This option applies to the 5000-level courses.
The first two modules (M1 and M2) will remain online, while the last (M3 and M4) will be onsite.

Modules 3 and 4 will be taught onsite in Singapore or Malaysia. BCM Institute reserved the right to postpone the course if the minimum participation is less than five people.

Why Modules 1 and 2 are online?
The first two online modules require participants to complete the learning modules to be grounded on the CM fundamentals and concepts. It also ensures that the participants will be awarded CMCP upon completing and passing the CM-300 or CM-5000 qualifying examination.
You can start your eLearning (Module 1) anytime, but it must be completed before Day 2 (Module 2) commences. The principle is to ground you on all of the BCM concepts and fundamentals before we start the course, and this can be done offline and on your own time.
As for Module 2, the participants will require ample time to complete the four key templates which build up the business continuity plan. Again, it requires more than one day to complete the entire syllabus.
Module 2 consists of two online workshop sessions (M2-S1 and M2-S2). It is a three-hour session comprising pre-reading and assignment preparation before each session.
For participants attending the course, please note that payment is payable to the Singapore Bank per invoice in Singapore dollars. Not that it should be a complete amount without any tax.
Minimum Onsite Class Size
BCM Institute will conduct the course only if there are sufficient participants.
Should there be a limited number of participants, BCM Institute reserves the right to announce and allow participants to join any available blended learning program and cancel or reschedule the course at any time without liability. In these circumstances, participants will be offered deferment to the next run of the same course.
For those taking the Specialist (CMCS) and Expert (CMCE) level Qualifying Examination, the Program Management team will advise the next step once enrolled. This includes a practice exam and access to the examination portal.
Eligibility for Funding from Singapore and Malaysia
