What is CEBS?
The CEBS designation is a credential that is recognized for the depth and relevance of critical knowledge achieved. The curriculum is designed for those working with health and other group benefits and for those who work with defined contribution and defined benefit plans or are involved with the management of plan assets. This program builds a total benefits perspective and is achieved by successfully completing five required courses.
