The CEBS program now offers candidates the opportunity to earn three specialty designations: Group Benefits Associate (GBA), Retirement Plans Associate (RPA) and Compensation Management Specialist (CMS). The GBA, RPA and CMS recognize the three primary areas of specialization within total compensation -group, retirement, and compensation management. The specialty designations require successful completion of three examinations within the CEBS curriculum. Like the CEBS designation, the GBA, RPA and CMS designations are awarded by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and Dalhousie University.
