About our Certifications

Who are the RBLP Leadership Certifications for?


Resilience is a human resource strength in organizations that can and should be developed. Collective resilience is the team’s ability to overcome adversity, and then adapt and grow because of those adversity.

Resilient teams are the key to both individual and organizational resilience. Resilient teams are stronger together and they make learning and change possible.

Our three-tiered certification program provides organizations of any size, in any industry, with a holistic and scalable solution for certifying that front-line supervisors, middle managers, and senior leaders demonstrate competency in the leader tasks applicable to Building Resilient Teams for organizational learning and change.

Use your Education Benefits!

Upskilling employees is a proven and cost-effective way to increase organizational productivity and effectiveness. And, the great thing about upskilling is that employers usually pay for it. 

Employers provide training and education benefits because it helps them hire and retain good talent. Taking advantage of education benefits allows employees to enhance their skills and increase their value to the organization at the same time.

Education benefits are typically tax-deductible for organizations and tax-free for employees up to $5,250 annually in the U.S. Still, many education benefits programs are under-utilized. 

About Exam Prep

The Resilience-Building Leader Program does not provide training for our own certification exams.

Exam prep training is provided by our network of Authorized Training Partner (ATP) colleges, universities, leadership coaches, training companies, and career schools.

The exam prep courses offered by our ATPs ensure that students are well-prepared for our certification exams. Exam prep training with an ATP is highly recommended but not required.

Instructor-led training mimics the oral exam process. Our ATPs us experiential learning techniques and coaching skills to facilitate reflection and critical thinking about each applicable leader task.

About our Exams

Oral exams are challenging. We administer oral certification exams because leadership knowledge can be tested more effectively by oral exam than by written examination.

Applicants for certification are required to show competence of factual (what), conceptual (why), and procedural (how) knowledge for each leader task in the competency domains applicable to their level of certification.

All exam administrators hold doctoral degrees and have 20+ years of leadership experience.

Our exams are issued in English or Spanish by exam administrators via Microsoft Teams video conference (French and Hebrew coming soon).
