I’m interested! How do I get certified?

  1. You must first register for either the Gold, Platinum, or Platinum+ Bundle. *Please note that you are only able to take up to two certification tests while attending the SpeakBO Experience and you must have 12 hours of training completed. If you attended a previous IBIS and did not pass your test, we can roll over those hours for certification attempt.
  2. If you have never attended IBIS before and you are now attending the SpeakBO Experience, please make sure you accumulate 12 hours of SpeakBO sessions the week of June 22nd-26th! Or, take at least one Hands-On SpeakBO Training class.
  3. You are now ready to take your certification exam!

Upon successful completion of the certification you will receive a certificate along with digital badges that you can use on your signature, resume and social media profiles. You will also be included in the InfoSol registry of certified experts.

I am certified, but it expires soon! How do I re-certify?

We are excited to introduce a new re-certification program- that does not require a certification exam!

  1. You will have to accumulate 75 points in order to re-certify for 2 additional years without retaking the certification exam.
  2. How do you accumulate the points? You must attend a Hands-On Training course that is related to your certificate. Each day of hands on training is worth 25 points.

The cost for certification is included in your Gold, Platinum, or Platinum+ Bundle!

How do you sign up you may wonder? Once you purchase one of the qualifying bundles, you will have a course in your bundle that allows you to sign up for the certifications of your choice!
