How It Works
Your business pays for the first year of membership. During this time, your team members join the Certification Program, take the essential business education, complete the quizzes, and become certified.
They also have full access to SUCCEED! Conferences and additional FBA perks and education during this period. They can also attend the included post-certification CEC education.
After the first year, your team members have the option to upkeep their certification by paying the yearly renewal themselves.
Alternatively, your organization may choose to pay this yearly renewal fee for your team members, as an incentive to retain talent and to keep investing in their education. Each year of upkeep continues to include full access to SUCCEED! conferences, full access to FBA perks and additional education, and mandated CECs to maintain their certification.
We use an easy structure of 1-year seats. Each 1-year seat grants access to the FBA Certification Program for any of your team members, at any level of their journey. Whether they are seeking to become certified, or renewing their existing certification.
Purchase discounted seats in packs of 5. You can use each seat to start a new team member on their certification journey or pay for the yearly renewal of a member that is already certified.
You choose how and when to use your seats. Packs of 5 get a $50 discount per seat.
At the cost of $249 per each 1-year seat:
If your facility has 5 team members you'd like to get certified, you can invest $199 x 5 (five team members) = $995 (includes a $50 discount per seat, regularly $249 per seat) to grant them all access to the first year of certification. Your team members will then upskill and get certified, and enjoy access to SUCCEED! and all the benefits of FBA.
The following year at the time of renewal, team members may opt to pay for renewal themselves to maintain their certification. If they choose to let it expire, they retain the knowledge gained the year prior from the certification, education events, and CECs.
Alternatively, you might choose to buy another pack of 5 seats ($995) to comp the renewals for your team members. So they can keep their certification, and continue growing their skills while enjoying one more year of SUCCEED! conferences, CEC/CEU education, and FBA perks.
The FBA Certification Program also includes CEC/CEUs from major certifying organizations:
Every program participant has access to an immense catalog of hundreds of CEC/CEU qualifying sessions from major certifying organizations!
Your certified pros will be able to get recertified (or nearly) for their technical certifications in as little as a weekend. At no additional cost. This represents hundreds of dollars of savings for them!
