In order to be eligible to become a certified sponsor, the following criteria must be met:

- The Sponsor must have been a proven provider of continuing education under the
NCERS program for at least 2 years and have submitted a minimum of ten programs for review during their membership period.

Applications for certified sponsor are reviewed twice a year. The application deadlines are as follows:
- March 15th – Applications will be reviewed during NAB’s Annual meeting which occurs in June of each year.
- August 15th – Applications will be reviewed during NAB’s Mid-Year meeting which occurs in November of each year.
Please note: All sponsors will need to have a minimum of one (distance learning or in person) program reviewed by a NAB representative prior to application review. This program will need to be completed a minimum of one month prior to NAB’s Annual or Mid-Year meeting. If a program is unable to be reviewed prior to the meeting, your application review will be deferred to the next meeting date.
Beginning in November 2019, all providers who currently certified sponsor members of the NAB will be required to renew their status. NAB is diligently working to send all sponsors notification regarding their renewal dates. Sponsors will be contacted via email with directions on how and when to renew their certified sponsor membership. The links below will provide additional information regarding renewal along with example forms. All applications will be completed through an online renewal system. Paper application forms submitted will not be accepted.
