Whatever your reasons for pursuing CB certification, Lorman Education Services can help. We offer AIPB-approved CB courses that can prepare you to sit for the exam or help you earn continuing education credits required to maintain your standing.

Getting CB Certified

Becoming CB certified requires passing a four-part exam covering the following topics:

Parts 1 and 2 are administered at Prometric testing centers, located nationwide. Parts 3 and 4 are open book exams administered at home. In addition to passing the four-part exam, CB-certified bookkeepers have to demonstrate least two years’ full-time experience or 3000 hours of part time/freelance experience, and they must also sign a code of ethics.

Maintaining Your Certification: The Role of Continuing Education

The role of the bookkeeper in today's modern offices is constantly evolving as laws, technology and culture change. Ongoing training is an important part of CB certification, one that ensures all certified professionals continue to uphold a uniform standard of excellence and professionalism.

To keep their certifications valid, bookkeepers must complete 60 credit hours of approved CB courses every three-year registration period. This can be done through any combination of self-study and online training, including live webinars, from an AIPB-recognized provider.
