The NASBITE Accredited CGBP Training Program designation is an endorsement that recognizes CGBP Training programs that have exceptional trainer(s), curriculum that is fully aligned with the four domains of knowledge in the CGBP Practice Delineation, and that have a track record of successfully preparing candidates to sit for the CGBP exam.  In recognition of this status, we highlight accredited training programs on our CGBP Training page.

Additionally, organizations that are accredited are able to advertise their CGBP Training and their CGBP CEUs on the NASBITE CGBP website at no cost.  NASBITE has a significant Google Ads program and an active social media presence, so listing upcoming CGBP training and professional development training on the NASBITE is a significant benefit.  We are also in the process of building a network of accredited training organizations nationwide, we are rapidly gaining momentum.

If you offer trade training of any sort, please consider NASBITE Accredited CGBP training and the benefits of offering training to meet the ongoing professional development needs of our growing list of CGBPs.
