The Compliance Certification Board welcomes applications for event accreditation from organizations that provide compliance and ethics education and training. Events submitted for CCB accreditation must address at least one of the 10 subject areas identified by CCB as relevant to compliance certification.
CCB credit is awarded for every 50 minutes of actual time spent in instruction. When submitting credits, please calculate total hours or minutes of participation. Credit will not be given for networking, social activities, breaks, meals, or time spent in non-instructional activities such as question-and-answer sessions.
During review of the application, if the total amount of instruction time varies significantly from the time indicated by the event sponsor, the CCB certification specialist will contact the sponsor for further information.
Events sponsors should:
Submit the Event Accreditation Application Form along with all required supporting documentation & application fees to CCB.
If the event is offered more than one time, and within 12 months of the initial event date and location indicated on the Event Accreditation Application, complete and attach the CCB form for Additional Event Dates & Locations
Allow up to six weeks for a CCB certification specialist to review and process this application.
If your event is approved
Upon accreditation approval, CCB will issue the sponsor a master certificate, which should be given to event participants. Any certificate other than the CCB-issued master certificate may not be accepted as documentation of earned CCB CEUs.
This event approval applies only to the agenda, content, timing, and dates submitted with your application. If there are any changes to this event, including the addition or cancellation of dates, changes to content, changes to timing, or changes to location, you must notify CCB immediately or the approval may be invalidated. An additional event application and/or fees may be required to process changes or updates.
CCB CEUs may be used toward any one of the seven CCB Certifications. If event is approved, all approval documents must be sent to every attendee seeking CCB CEUs. No fees may be charged for those seeking CCB CEUs for their attendance of your approved event. Attendees must have a copy of the official CCB CEU certificate for their records. Only official CCB CEU certificates are valid for reporting earned CCB CEUs and accepted for attendance verification. CCB reserves the right to audit continuing education submissions at any time.
Sponsors are not required to send certificates to CCB on behalf of the individuals seeking credit. It is the responsibility of the individual receiving CCB CEUs to submit the certificate to CCB for credits. Additionally, it is the candidate’s responsibility to maintain a file of continuing education activities and certificates of attendance. CCB does not retain copies of individual certificates award for continuing education activities.
If your event is not approved
If the event is not accredited, a CCB certification specialist will notify the program sponsor. Decisions regarding accreditation may be appealed to the CCB Board of Directors. The board may, at its discretion, uphold the findings of the Continuing Education Committee or render its own findings regarding accreditation and total award, or it may refer the application back to the committee for a second review. Any decision by the board is final.
