Payment via Credit Card
The National Board accepts American Express, MasterCard, and Visa for credit card payment. For security reasons, we do not accept credit card payments via email.

Payment via Check
Students wishing to pay by check cannot enroll for training online but must contact the training department for enrollment information via email or by calling 614.431.3216. Students paying by check will not be guaranteed a seat in the requested class until payment is received. If payment is not received at least 30 days prior to the start of class or received after a class date becomes full, students will automatically be rescheduled to the next available class date, as class size is limited.
Students will receive two emails when enrolling for National Board training: (1) an enrollment acknowledgement email upon receipt of the enrollment form by the training department, and (2) a confirmation email six to eight weeks prior to the start of class. If you have not received a confirmation email please call the National Board to confirm your enrollment. Note: Please be sure to have class confirmation before making travel arrangements.
Students traveling from abroad may request a visa invitation letter AFTER enrolling in a course or seminar by sending an email to the training department at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is the policy of the National Board to maintain a record, or transcript, for each student that has attended National Board training, for a minimum of seven years. Transcripts include instructor-led classes; online courses; examinations; and any credentials received. This information is available through the student's account on the National Board Business Center/Education Center. Students may access this information by going to the Reports drop down under Education Center, or by clicking the View/Edit My Profile link. Students may also print certificates for their online courses; update their contact information; and enroll in additional online training.
The National Board cannot accommodate shipping books to or from our mailroom. If you are interested in shipping books to Columbus, Ohio, we suggest they be sent to the hotel. For shipping books home, a list of local shipping agents may be obtained from the training staff. Please note: Several local hotels do provide shipping services for students upon completion of class. Check the National Board Web site for the current Hotel List.
The National Board reserves the right to cancel training classes at its discretion.
