SBE Certification Exam Schedule

SBE Certification examinations are usually administered through local chapters under the supervision of proctors approved by the National Certification Committee. Exam windows are created for individuals to take exams. Once an exam application is submitted, the local certification chair will be notified, and he or she will contact the applicant to arrange the time and place for the exam during the exam window. Where no chapters exist, the National Certification Committee will arrange for suitable testing procedures. 

The SBE Certification Committee has established the following exam dates. Choose the exam period that is best for you.

When you are ready to take an SBE exam, please fill out the appropriate application and send it into the SBE National office (see address below). You will be notified once your application has been approved. Approximately 3 weeks before the exam time, your local certification chairman will receive a list of applicants in his/her area. He/she will then contact those applicants to schedule a date, time and place for the exams. The exams will be mailed back to the National office for grading. The pass/fail grades will then be mailed directly to the applicants.

You may mail, email or fax your applications to:
