CASBO has sent notifications to your preferred email address (as noted in your CASBO profile) if you are eligible to pursue a reactivation path. Keep your email address in your CASBO profile up-to-date and calendar your expiration date – you are responsible for reactivating prior to the deadline.

This program is a one-time opportunity.

If you did not receive a notification and believe you’re eligible, email

In order to reactivate, individuals must:

  1.  Log 50 CEUs earned between 2018 and 2023.
  2. Pay the reactivation fee or the exam registration fee by the deadline given for their path.

CASBO membership includes discounts and access to free CASBO education programs, which may be used towards reactivation CEUs. However, individuals are not required to be a CASBO member to reactivate or retain certification.

CEUs from any school business-focused organization will be accepted.

Virtual programs via CASBO School Business University (CASBO SBU) will automatically be recorded to your CEU log, but it’s good practice to double-check that all your education appears. You should self-report CEUs earned for CASBO’s Annual Conference and/or CBO Symposium.

CEUs from other programs and organizations must be self-reported.

For education programs, clock hours equal CEUs. Example: 60 minute session = 1 CEU. The minimum amount of CEUs that can be reported is .25 (15 minutes).

A semester-length college/university course counts as 8.0 CEUs, for a maximum of 32 CEUs in that category.

When submitting CEUs for podcasts, roundtables, or readings, include a brief description of how the topic impacts your job or workplace.

Retain copies of supporting documentation (eg: certificate of completion, transcripts) in the event your recertification is audited.

To view or log CEUs:

  1. Go to
  2. Log in
  3. Click “Member Profile” in the top right
  4. Once in your profile, click on “My Courses” on the left-hand side menu.
  5. To add CEUs, select the “Add Credits” button
