RBLP Academic Advisors

So you’ve applied for your Resilience-Building Leader Professional certification. What’s the next step, and once your certification process has begun how do you make the most of your experience? Our Academic Advisors are here to help!

The RBLP Academic Advisors are part of our People and Program Development team, and are your strategic guide as you work toward acquiring your RBLP, RBLP-C or RBLP-T certification, and beyond.  They function much like an academic advisor would at a college or university: With the purpose of guiding our applicants through all the necessary steps to get started on their journey; to answer questions about all aspects of the process, from funding to exam administration; and to assist when the time comes for recertification.  The RBLP Academic Advisors are all about building the relationships that usher our newly-certified leaders into our worldwide community of practice.

Currently, RBLP has two Academic Advisors ready to assist you with any needs on your path toward Building Resilient Teams™:
