When you are ready to take an SBE exam, please fill out the appropriate application and send it into the SBE National office (see address below). You will be notified once your application has been approved.  Approximately 3 weeks before the exam time, your local certification chairman will receive a list of applicants in his/her area.  He/she will then contact those applicants to schedule a date, time and place for the exams.  The exams will be mailed back to the National office for grading.  The pass/fail grades will then be mailed directly to the applicants.

You may mail, email or fax your applications to:
