Compliance Certification Board (CCB)

Since 1999 the Compliance Certification Board (CCB) has developed criteria to determine competence in the practice of compliance and ethics across various industries and specialty areas, and recognizes individuals meeting these criteria through its compliance certification programs.

CCB Exams

The seven CCB examinations were developed through a combined effort of qualified content experts and testing professionals. The exams test a well-defined body of knowledge representative of professional practice in the discipline. Content experts and testing professionals review test items to ensure they are accurate in content, relevant in practice, and representative of good testing procedures.

CCB has partnered with Kansas City, Kan.-based Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc. (AMP) to assist in the development, scoring, and analysis of its examinations. Additionally, AMP reports scores to individuals who take examinations.

Individuals who meet eligibility requirements and who successfully pass one of the seven examinations, attain the specific designation. Learn more about each specific exam by clicking on the links above.
