How Does the CBC Designation Work?
The Certified Business Consultant (CBC) designation program is a self-paced training and certification program on business consulting fundamentals, industry terms, and best practices. The CBC program is self-study and 100% online. That means you get to set your own pace and take as long as you need.
When working with clients, feel confident knowing the basic and necessary components of structuring consulting assignments and consulting delivery methods. Maintain success with client retention and ethical considerations and guidelines. This program develops the skills necessary to consult effectively.
