Certified BlackLight Examiner (CBE)

This distinction is achieved through the successful completion of an online certification exam. CBE candidates must attend the BlackLight Tool Training course before sitting for the exam.

CBE Certification Flow

Requirements and Prerequisites

CBE candidates must have completed the BlackLight Tool Training course or its predecessor, BBT-320. It should also be noted that course attendance does not guarantee certification. If a student does not pass the exam, he or she must wait for at least 48 hours before trying again.

Upon successful completion of the exam, CBE recipients will maintain their status for a period of three years. After the certification expires, recipients will need to complete the current BTT: Certified BlackLight Examiner (CBE) module in order to renew. This new module will be located in your 'To Do' list under the Training tab on your BlackBag account.
