      • Increasing or decreasing the number of CEs
      • Adding secondary course titles
      • Combining multiple course titles
      • Adding a course format
  • Provide required information and  submit
  • Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing. You can view the status of all your applications by logging into your account and clicking on “Applications History” from the Dashboard.

Please Note: Attendees arriving late or not attending the full course SHOULD NOT be given certificates for partial credit. Approved Providers are expected to have written policies that address the attendance requirements for their Live and Distance Learning/Webinar classes.

NCBTMB will only accept certificates with course title, format, and corresponding CE hours exactly as NCBTMB approved. This is a requirement of both NCBTMB’s accreditation with NCCA and NCBTMB’s agreement with several state boards to serve as a resource for their audit processes. Incorrect CE certificates will be rejected by NCBTMB and may also be rejected by state regulatory boards.

NCBTMB will refer individuals back to the Approved Provider for incorrect CE certificates.
