How do I register?

If you have decided that the SBMCP is right for you and would like to enroll, please visit the SBMCP homepage and follow the links for the track that you have decided is best for you. Payment must be made before you receive your notebook. For self-paced you will need to schedule a time to meet and discuss the program with the program coordinator. 

When will I receive my notebook?

You will receive your notebook after registration and payment have been received. Your notebook can either be picked up during office hours or you may request to receive it when you attend your next seminar. 8-Week participants will receive their notebooks at the first orientation seminar or the following seminar after payment has been processed. 

I’ve already been to a few of the required seminars, will they still count?

Yes, any seminar you have attended in the past year will count towards the completion of your certification but all seminars must be completed in a one year span.

The SBMCP course participants can use some seminars they have previously attended as substitutes but please contact us for more information. Self-paced might be a better match for you if you have already attended a number of seminars included in the certificate.

Why can’t I count seminars that I attended more than one year ago?

We don’t count seminars you’ve attended more than a year ago because we want to be sure that the knowledge you have gained is the most up to date information.

What if I don’t finish in one year?

Situations are dealt with on a case by case basis. If you have been an active participant you may get an extension to complete your requirements. If you are an inactive participant you may have to re-enroll and pay another enrollment fee. You may request a replacement notebook with re-enrollment.

How will I track my progress?

You are responsible for keeping track of and completing all of your requirements. However, if you would like to see a report of your seminar attendance or requirements that you have fulfilled, email

I want to complete the program soon but some seminars I need are not being offered this quarter. Are there any options for me?

Because some seminars are given only 3 or 4 times a year there are limited substitutions available on a case-by-case basis. You must meet with the program coordinator to discuss completing an alternate graduation plan. Alternatives are primarily made up of additional online training modules or taking another set of seminars that will provide similar information. We discourage this course of action if at all possible.

I have more questions!
