Finding IBS Courses

Where can I find a list of every IBS course for 2021? 

Here's a list of every course for 2021 in one document.  You will find registration deadlines in this document

Where can I register for 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 IBS records here.  For IBS courses taken in the U.S., send an email to ibs.info@cru.org and we will help you figure out what you've completed.

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.
