Brookfield, Wisconsin—Beginning in April, Certified Employee Benefit
Specialist (CEBS) exams will move to computer-based testing providing CEBS
students with the flexibility of year-round testing available at Prometric
Testing Centres in Canada. Students will be able to schedule exams at their
convenience – to accommodate both their professional and personel schedules and
will receive instant grade results.

director of the Canadian CEBS Program at Dalhousie University. “Computer-based
testing is an efficient way to provide a secure, consistent, individualized
environment for certification while providing CEBS students with maximum
flexibility to fit the CEBS exams into their already busy lives.”
