IBS News

Where can I find a list of every IBS course for 2020? 

Here's a list of every course for the rest of 2020 in one document. 

New Virtual Courses Added 

We recently scheduled a host of new virtual courses starting in March (both five weeks and one week). Watch a two minute video by Keith Johnson describing these courses. 

Orlando IBS Going Virtual 

In light of COVID-19 present realities and future uncertainty, the Orlando IBS is going virtual.  All previously scheduled courses will be offered in a new online format. Those who have registered for the Orlando IBS will receive an email with further details. (Note: New Staff joining Cru this summer will not be taking the new virtual courses but will attend IBS later.)  Information about courses and registration can be found here.

Where can I find IBS courses?

IBS courses are delivered in three ways:
1. Local IBS, where an IBS course is delivered in a one-week format in various cities across the U.S.  Over a dozen courses a year are offered in this format.
2. Virtual IBS, where IBS courses can be taken online over a period of ten weeks.  Currently three IBS courses are available online (with more coming in the future).
3. Summer IBS, where all eleven IBS core courses are offered in a two-week format. 

Where do I submit my graduation form when I finish my IBS requirements?

You will find the graduation form and instructions posted here.

How can I find out which IBS courses I have completed?

You can find information about your IBS records here.  You can view your course records online for IBS courses taken in the U.S. between 1995 and the present here. It will show whether you have finished IBS and what courses you have taken.  You will need your Relay login.

How can I find out which IBS courses I still need?

If you came on staff after 1992, you need to complete the eleven IBS core courses. If you came on staff before 1992, you are under the old requirements. Use the IBS Progress Report to help you figure which IBS courses you need to finish.
