CEBS Compliance

Fuel your fire for knowledge by continuing to learn the latest in employee benefits. Once you’ve earned your CEBS designation, validate your ongoing industry commitment by participating in CEBS Compliance, a voluntary level of additional recognition. It sets you apart as a committed, knowledgeable professional dedicated to career-long learning. All CEBS designees, of any year at every level of their career are eligible and welcome to participate.

CEBS Compliance is defined as earning and reporting 30 hours of professional education activities over a period of up to two consecutive calendar years. Graduates who meet this standard are listed and recognized on a publicly available and searchable listing of all graduates whose CEBS compliance status is current. (You may use the CEBS mark regardless of your participation in CEBS Compliance.)
