NEBB certifies firms that meet certain criteria,
ensuring strict conformance to its high standards and procedures. Among other requirements, NEBB certified firms
must document record of responsible performance and have at least one NEBB qualified professional as a full-time
employee at each certified firm location.
NEBB also established professional guidelines for the
supervision and performance of work in its various disciplines. NEBB qualified professionals must have
extensive experience, plus they must pass appropriate, college-level on-line examinations at a Kryterion test site.
In certain disciplines (TAB, S&V, and CPT) the NEBB qualified professional must demonstrate practical working knowledge
and proficiency in the use of instruments.
