Online Certification and Licensing System
The Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC) has a new online certification and licensing system. The new system allows applicants to apply and pay for new certifications, registrations, or licenses, renew existing certifications, registrations, or licenses, update contact information, see a list of approved CE courses, check the status of applications, confirm receipt of applications, apply for the CSR exam, and search for individuals or entities that are certified, licensed, or registered with the JBCC. Additionally, licensees and CE course providers can apply for continuing education approval. The new system became live on September 18, 2017 for all of our certification, registration, and licensing programs. During the transition, there may be a short delay in processing applications.
You must have a user profile to use the online system. Current applicants and those currently certified and registered must use the activation code, to be issued to them by the JBCC, in order to create a profile. Activation codes will only be issued to the contact information currently on file. Activation codes will not be issued by phone. New applicants can create a profile without an activation code.
