First please review our webpage dedicated to Certified Individuals (CI) and the controlling document NB-383, Rules for Certified Individuals, that describe the program requirements.
Once the information above has been reviewed, have your Certified Individual candidate create an account on the National Board Business Center (ONLY IF they do not already have an account). This page can be seen below and the link to create a new account is highlighted in yellow. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help accessing an existing Business Center account. Please note that these accounts are different from the National Board's website accounts.
After this, the candidate can register and complete the full course for the desired CI designator. This is done by the candidate logging into their personal Business Center account. From the Education Center tab, hover over Online Training and then click View Catalog. Within the Online Training Catalog, clicking the white triangle next to the row titled "Certified Individual" will show the menus for the desired course with the desired designator.
Once the full course (4 hours) is completed, an application will appear on the Company Administrator account for which your organization’s credential contact has access. If an application does not appear, the employer may not have been added correctly to the candidate’s record. The organization’s credential contact should let us know by emailing email@example.com with the candidate’s name, email address, and the organization’s name and address, and we will make sure to associate them with the correct location. Once we have done that, we will advise the credential contact that the application now appears.
