Once the designation is gained, the person who holds the CBI earns an award plaque and agrees to the compulsory maintenance requirements. Each recertification period is three years, and the following requirements must be met during that time:
If the recertification requirements cannot be met, then a one-year extension may be requested by completing the Recertification Extension Request Form. Failure to maintain any of these recertification requirements will result in the resignation, revocation or forfeiture of the CBI designation.
It is possible to reinstate the designation after it has been lost. If you have any questions related to CBI recertification please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
