Prepare for your Certification Exam

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.

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.

ATPs typically bundle the cost of an exam voucher with their training. Students schedule their exams here on our site. All certification exams are administered by Resilience-Building Leader Program.

We issue each ATP a digital badge for display on their website.
