ISCEBS Fellowship—Relevant and Focused
on Your Needs

Online Study Group 

The International Society is again offering members the option to participate in an online study group for the continuing education course.

These online groups will be led by experienced, CEBS graduate professionals who also teach the online CEBS courses. Enrollment in the Fellowship exam is not required to participate in the study group.

Register for the online study group today. Once you register, more information and access to the study group environment will be provided.

CEBS Compliance Credits

The course qualifies for CEBS Compliance credit. The combined course fully satisfies the 30 credits needed for this reporting cycle; the health or retirement tracks earn 15 credits each.

Health Track: 15 credits
Retirement Track: 15 credits
Combined: 30 credits

Choose One Track - or Both

Do you specialize in just one area? Short on time and training dollars? The course and exam are separated into two distinct tracks – health care benefits and retirement. You can choose the one that best represents your specialty or interest – or take them both for the complete experience. Dividing the course gives you more flexibility in how you spend your professional development time – and budget. The course materials are now available in Members Only for immediate reading or download. 

For CEBS graduates, Fellowship will be granted for one year for each track, or two years for both tracks.

The ISCEBS Fellowship Courses/Examinations are available to all CEBS, GBA, RPA and CMS designees who are members of the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists. It is developed to keep Society members at the forefront of new developments and trends in the benefits field. Society members can elect to receive the continuing education materials as part of their membership dues. (Fellowship status is reserved for CEBS graduates.)

Additional Fellowship Options!

In addition to the annual continuing education courses/examinations for the U.S. and Canada, Society members have other ways to qualify for fellowship status. CEBS graduate members will be awarded two-year fellowship status for each CEBS course completed, provided it was not used toward earning the CEBS designation.

U.S. members who take courses from the Canadian CEBS program or Canadians who take U.S. courses will be able to use them to qualify for fellowship.
