IBS Graduation

A graduation ceremony honoring those who have completed their IBS certificates is held every other year immediately preceding the National Staff Conference.

The next graduation ceremony is tentatively planned for summer of 2021.

Once you have completed the eleven required IBS courses (or equivalent), you are eligible to graduate from IBS. In order to graduate, you must submit an “IBS Graduation Form” to the IBS registrar at least one month prior to graduation.

If you are unable to attend the graduation ceremony, we will mail your IBS certificate to you.

Submitting IBS Graduation Form

If you have finished your required IBS courses and have not previously graduated from IBS, please download and complete the IBS Graduation form and email it to ibs.info@cru.org. The OLD IBS requirements document will help you fill out the graduation form if you took courses under the old requirements.
