Certified Business Architect® Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Program
The Certified Business Architect (CBA)® program certifies an individual as competent in the field of business architecture for a period of three years from date of issuance of the CBA®. During this period of time, individuals having achieved CBA® status will be required to maintain certification status by logging continuing education unit (CEU) credits.
The first release of the program provides CBA® designated individuals with a number of options for maintaining certification. The program will evolve based on the evolution of Guild and third party programs and offerings.
A single CEU credit is defined as one (1) hour of participation in a Guild recognized, event, training course, webinar or other designated program. To maintain CBA® designation, an individual having achieved CBA® status must have logged at least 25 CEU credits during a three-year period that begins upon notice of certification into the CBA® program.
CEUs earned by CBAs® from July 1, 2015 through to the launch of the CEU program will be applied retroactively.
The CEU program is intended to continue increasing the skills and experience of those with the CBA® designation. The majority of CEU opportunities are offered at no cost to Guild members.
The Guild has established a list of means and sources for CBA® designated individuals, who are Guild members in good standing, to maintain their CBA® status. CBA® CEU credits may be earned for the following:
Receiving Continuing Education Units
You may not apply CEUs in advance of earning your CBA® designation.
The Guild will apply all Continuing Education Units directly to the CBA®’s member record. The website will notify you when the credits have been applied. Credits will be located under your member profile/professional development.
Guild authorship credits will be posted within three weeks of the event or the BIZBOK Guide ® /whitepaper release.
GATP® course and event providers must submit the required forms to the Guild. We anticipate CEUs will be applied within 45 days based on the receipt of the attendee list.
Annual CEUs (for Guild participation) will be posted in June, prior to the Guild fiscal year end.
Most, but not all, live and recorded webinars hosted after September, 2015 are eligible for 1 credit. Webinars will clearly be labeled. In order to receive a CEU, you will need to complete the quiz with a passing score. Credit will be applied to your profile immediately.
CEUs for the March 2016 Summit will be applied directly by the Guild based on the guidelines previously posted.
CEUs for future Guild events, including the Reference Model workshop in September in Chicago will require the CBA ® to register on the Guild website directly and to confirm attendance via the sign-in sheet. No CEUs can be awarded to those who register with OMG directly.
This program will evolve from time-to-time. Updates will be posted to the Guild certification website. These updates will include more information on logging credits and related issues.
Failure to Comply
If the required number of CEU credits is not earned during such time, that individual’s CBA® status will be terminated.
