The New Online Education Center Has Arrived!

Our Education Center is the new home for all National Board online training. Although a student account* is necessary to enroll in an online course, anyone may launch the catalog to review the list of available titles, either alphabetically or by category. To start, a limited number of courses have been included in the new Education Center. Additional courses will be added throughout the month of January.

In addition to completing online training courses, students my also print training transcripts and certificates, update their contact information, and review a list of upcoming instructor-led training classes in which they may be enrolled.

NOTE: The old online training center is still active through mid-February in order to allow students to complete any courses they may still have outstanding in their accounts. Also, Certified Individual courses remain in the old system until they can be transferred to the new Education Center in late January.

Still need to complete training for the
December 2016 renewal?
