The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) program provides NKBA-certified members with the tools to excel in their profession and to promote their expertise to consumers. CEUs provide the opportunity for individuals to have recognition of their efforts to update or broaden their occupational knowledge and skills. Industry professionals and consumers are better protected in a more educated marketplace. By ensuring that all certified members maintain an adequate level of knowledge, the NKBA builds consumer confidence and trust in the industry and more specifically of all NKBA members.

CEU'S are self-reporting for Certified NKBA Members.
