To obtain a NaBITA Certificate, you will need to attend the whole event. It is our expectation that you are present for the entire duration of your training course.

Please allow 14 business days following the completion of the course and then log-into or create an account with our Continuing Certification Credit (CCC) system. Please follow the instructions on the webpage to obtain your certification. Our CCC program allows those certified by NaBITA to track, maintain, and extend their professional development through our programs. Learn more about our program here.

Digital Badging

NaBITA has partnered with Accredible to add digital badging to its ability to recognize and honor the 12,500 professionals who have sought certification training since 2012.

Digital badges are an increasingly popular tool for employees to denote their achievements, illustrate skill accumulation, and convey professional competence and excellence. A digital badge is an indicator of accomplishment or skill that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online. The badge includes information on who earned the badge, what the badge represents, how it was earned, when it was earned, and who issued it. Digital credentials allow employees to present a rich and trustworthy record of their professional development, easily shared on social platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as inclusion in email signatures.

Attendees of any Certification Course will now be able to expand their current options for verifying certification in a more public, visual, digital, and social, displaying badges for each certification so that colleagues, students, and potential employers can recognize your training and professional development. Attendees will receive notification following completion of the training on how to access their badge.

PLEASE NOTE: Certification refers to attendance at a qualifying event; The NCHERM Group cannot speak to individual attendees’ knowledge, expertise, or command of the material.


All registrations for 2019 trainings include complimentary one-month Individual Trial Memberships for attendees who have no previous membership history with NaBITA. Active trial members have access to the full benefits of the corresponding membership level.

Complimentary and free trial memberships are not transferable unless the corresponding event registration is/was transferred as well.

Complimentary trial memberships that come with hotel or campus-based event registrations have no monetary value and cannot be applied towards a membership upgrade.

NaBITA will send trial members an email with instructions to activate their trial membership account. Trial membership expiration dates are one months from the date NaBITA sends the initial membership redemption email, regardless of when the membership is redeemed and activated.

Active trial members have access to the full benefits of the corresponding membership level.
