Introducing the CEBS Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirement CEBS has introduced a universal continuing professional education (CPE) requirement for all holders of the CEBS credential—past, present and future graduates of both the U.S. and Canadian CEBS programs.
What does this mean for you?
It means that the professional development activities you are already doing—for professional enrichment, to maintain a license or designation, or just to stay up-to-date—can be formally recognized for contributing to the professional currency that CEBS graduates are known for. The intent of the CPE program is to reward and recognize those who continue their efforts to keep up-to-date with the diverse and constantly evolving employee benefits field, and to provide a standard for CEBS graduates to publicize their CPE-compliant status to the industry they serve. There is no expiration or revocation policy for the CEBS credential for noncompliance with CPE. As a Society member, you have access to a variety of educational activities that you can apply towards your CPE requirements including:
Other activities you pursue for maintaining a related designation may also qualify. Visit www.cebscpe.org to learn more about the CPE requirement. Familiarity with this information will help you be sure you're earning and reporting your credits correctly. If you prefer, a printable/downloadable version of the CPE catalog is available, or you can request a copy in the mail.
