SBE Certification Diamond Project

Has your SBE Certification lapsed? Here’s a chance to get it back.

SBE 60 BlueThe SBE Certification Committee, in recognition of the SBE’s 60th anniversary, has created an opportunity for those who have allowed their SBE Certification to lapse to become SBE-certified once again. You can do this without taking an SBE Certification exam. The Diamond Project, named for the 60th anniversary, runs through the calendar year 2024 (January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2024). If your SBE Certification expired prior to January 1, 2023, you qualify for this project.

Applicants are required to complete the Diamond application and provide it with either a resume or a letter to the certification committee stating what he/she has done in broadcast engineering since the applicant’s SBE certification expired.

All SBE Certifications are included in the reinstatement program. Note that there are two price points. All SBE Certifications except Certified Professional Broadcast Engineer (CPBE) can be reinstated for $125 for each level of certification. If you held CPBE and it expired prior to January 1, 2023, you may either reinstate the senior level certification that you held prior to CPBE at the rate above, or you may choose to have your CPBE reinstated for $200. All these costs are for current SBE members. If you are not currently a member of the SBE, then non-member fees apply, which is an additional $85 for traditional membership or $175 for SBE MemberPlus.
