Next Steps for Former Curriculum Students

Have you already passed one or more exams in the former curriculum?  You can keep the momentum going by switching to the new curriculum . This provides you with a clear path to completing your CEBS designation! 

 

What exam credit will transfer to the new CEBS?

In order to earn your CEBS credential, you can take courses in the new program.   All students who have passed GBA 1, GBA 2, RPA 1, and/or RPA 2 will be given credit for these courses in the new curriculum. All other CEBS courses are no longer part of the redesigned CEBS model.

See how your completed courses apply to the new program.

Keep in mind these important points as you make your next move:

  • If you have credit (pass grade) for GBA 1 and GBA 2, you can earn your GBA designation by completing the GBA/ RPA 3 course in the new curriculum.
  • If you have credit for RPA 1 and RPA 2, you can earn your RPA designation by completing the GBA/RPA 3 course in the new curriculum.
  • Testing on courses in the former program ended on March 31, 2018.
