There are two levels of certification. The basic certification level is Balanced Scorecard Professional (BSP) and the advanced level is Balanced Scorecard Master Professional (BSMP). The BSP level includes five days of instruction and the completion of an online exam. The BSMP certification includes the BSP program plus a five-day Application course and formal presentation.
The Balanced Scorecard Professional (BSP) Certification is designed for students who do not want to achieve the higher level certification or would prefer to get BSMP Certification at a later date. Follow the BSP program to the right (in green) to become certified. Courses include the BSP Certification Pt. 1: Intro to the BSC course and the BSP Certification Pt. 2: Advanced BSC course. The two courses can be taken together in the same week by registering for the BSP Certification Boot Camp.
The Balanced Scorecard Master Professional (BSMP) status is the highest certification level, and includes advanced balanced scorecard study, and a rigorous application development project and presentation. Follow the entire program to the right (green and blue) to become certified. Anyone already BSP Certified can simply add the BSMP Certification Application Course to become BSMP certified. Alternatively, the entire BSMP Program can be completed at once by taking the 10-day BSMP Certification Course. All courses must be taken in order shown to the right.
The Balanced Scorecard Professional Certification exam, administered online, has 40 questions (multiple choice or true/false pulled randomly from a larger pool of questions). There is a one hour time limit to complete the exam and results are posted immediately. A score of 75% is needed to pass.
After completing the course requirements, participants that have not already registered for the program will be given a link to register for the exam. Once participants have registered and course completion has been verified, a link for the exam and login information will be provided. Completed exams are scored automatically and both the participant and the Institute are notified immediately. Certifications will be mailed to the registration mailing address for those that pass. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.
