Get your CASBO School Business Payroll Professional (SBPP) I, II or III Certification by adding 35 CEUs from our professional development curriculum. (Check the certifications eligibility details in the left column of our workshop descriptions to see which ones satisfy the "skills requirement" for your certification.)

To qualify for the SBPP Payroll Certification, you must show proof of completion of all training requirements. (Skills requirement workshops taken to satisfy your 35 CEUs require emailed letters of completion.) Once you have earned all 60 CEUs required, you may apply online for your CASBO certification.
