Continuing Education Credit

​​​​​​​​​​​​

In response to the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we are offering virtual online testing for the Fellow exam this year. This new option is designed to alleviate possible testing obstacles and hardship you may encounter with our onsite testing centers.

To obtain continuing education credit, some state insurance boards will require:

  • a proctored exam
  • a self-attestation form to be filled out
  • no proctoring needed

Please check your with your state for their requirements.  THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT A MOMENTS NOTICE, SO IT IS BEST TO CONTACT YOUR STATE SHORTLY BEFORE TESTING TO ENSURE NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE YOU ORIGINALLY CHECKED.  For non-insurance credit, please check with your licensing board to ensure if you need to be in a proctored or  non-proctored testing environment.

Continuing Education Credit Reporting

After passing your exam, your CE credit will be reported to the state within your states reporting deadline and your certificate will be mailed in 2-3 weeks following reporting.


HRCI Credit for PHR®, SPHR® and GPHR® Recertification

Passing the 2021 ISCEBS Fellowship Exam can be used to meet your recertification requirements. HRCI awards 30 credit hours for each track. Your pass notice from the Prometric Testing Center or the email received upon passing is your proof of satisfactory completion. HRCI recommends you retain all supporting documentation for at least six months after successful recertification. No further documentation is needed from the International Society.

CPA

ISCEBS is not registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of self-study courses. Whether credit can be earned would be subject to your individual state board of accountancy regulations. Contact your state board of accountancy to determine if self-study courses are eligible for continuing education credit.

Insurance Producers - Insurance CE Credit

The ISCEBS will seek approval of the Fellowship Exam only in states where this service is requested on exam application forms. ​Credit for each individual track may vary. State regulations for reporting credit and for the maximum credit to be awarded vary.
If there is no indication that the course is pending approval in your state, you MUST contact us and request credit at least 45 days prior to your exam date. If your state is not approved, the last day to request CE is June 1, 2021.

Do not sit for your exam until your state has been approved.

Check with your state board to find out if you:

  • Need a proctored exam environment (take exam at Prometric)
  • Can take it in a non-proctored environment (choose to take at prometric OR through non-proctored virtural environment),
  • Can take it in a non-proctored environment, but need a self-attestation form. If no form, you must take at Prometric.
