Being a Gold Partner has many advantages! To understand those benefits, it is necessary to first explain what it means to be a Gold Partner with CE Broker for Business. If you are an Association or Society in Florida that serves healthcare professionals, you are eligible and we want to become partners with you. As a Gold Partner, your Association/Society will have the opportunity to provide access to your members at a discounted subscription rate. A $5 discount, to be exact. That means your members will be eligible for a Professional Account at a low price of $24 per year.
Offering a discount to CE Broker’s Professional account enhances your membership benefits. Showing your members that you are working to make their renewal process and CE tracking easier will evoke appreciation from your members and ultimately drive memberships for your Association/Society!
Why is it Important for Members to Have a Professional Account?
With a Professional Account, users have access to their CE compliance transcript. This transcript is the quickest way to know what requirements are needed, what credits have been posted, and what is still needing to be completed. It’s an easy breakdown of all of the Board’s laws and rules– personalized for each user by profession. Email notifications are sent to users to alert them of all credits posted and for reminders when their renewal date is approaching. The Digital Storage feature provides an on-line filing cabinet where licensees can store certificates of completion. With these tools, continuing education becomes an effortless process and license renewal is a breeze!
How Do I Become a Gold Member?
Becoming a Gold Member is simple. In the partnership, CE Broker for Business will provide your Association/Society with a discount code to be given out to your members. We will promote the agreement across social media and email membership information to all licensees within your desired profession.
To learn more or become a Gold Member, you can contact our CEB for Business Account Manager, Karen Hohman, via phone at 904.726.4244 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there lots of Gold Members?
Yes! We have partnered with Associations and Societies all over Florida. We are proud that so many groups are wanting to offer their members a discounted Professional Account and look forward to continuing this longstanding partnership. Here is a list of our current Gold Partners:
CE Broker is proud to announce partnership with our first National Board- Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN), who operates under the American Chiropractic Association. This is an exciting venture for CE Broker as the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition has licensees in every state, plus some international licensees. Our partnership will include CE Broker tracking CBCN member’s requirements for certification. This will benefit both the Board and its members by alerting them when any certifications are near expiration and need to be re-certified. All of this happens right from within the CBCN’s account with CE Broker. This means less work for everyone involved since we are now automatically tracking all credits and deadlines and automatically will notify if any certification actions need to take place. Partnering with CE Broker is a collaboration to ensure healthcare professionals are maintaining their compliance with the tools and benefits we can offer them together.
Apply to join the CBCN in their quest to advance the services that Chiropractors offer to the public in the clinical nutrition area.
If you are wanting to apply to be a member of this Board, there are a few guidelines that you must meet. These guidelines are provided on the CBCN website in the Eligibility Requirement tab, or you can click on the “guidelines” link shown above.
First and foremost, you must hold a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from a CCE accredited college.
As an applicant, you must also show evidence that you have completed at least 300 credit hours towards a post doctoral program in nutrition. The evidence must come from an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (or from an agency that has a reciprocal agreement with the U.S. Department of Education).
You must submit your application before the deadline. The application will include your Official transcript directly from the institution where your post doctoral nutrition education was completed and 2 written case histories from actual patient files in the format provided by the CBCN along with the required case history attestation.

CE Broker is continually looking to add features to make your continuing education process easy to track. We have just launched our new and improved dashboard, accessible for all Professional and Concierge accounts. You’ll have immediate access to your new dashboard when you log into your account. It will look a little something like this:
You will have access to View Course History, View My Transcript, Report CE and the option to add a new license or certification. For Florida, DC and Ohio the date listed below Report CE will link directly to your License Verification page. You can choose to add a certification, such as Heart Card, by clicking “+ License/Certification. In the near future, you will also be able to add a license from another site.
If you are not complete we will display a yellow flag and the percentage complete until you get 3 months close to the transcript expiration date.
If you have made it to the 3 month count down and have still not completed your CE, the yellow flag changes to a red warning symbol.
If you are complete a green check and 100 % complete will display.
Yellow Flag Verbiage–Here is a helpful key to reading your flag status:
0: “Nothing has been reported yet.”
1 – 24: “Good start!”
25 – 50: “Making progress!”
51 – 75: “You’re on your way!”
76 – 99: “Almost there!”
We are very excited to reveal this new feature for our audience! If you have any questions about how to navigate your new dashboard or if you just want to comment on it, we are happy to hear from you. There are many ways to reach out to us. You can email our WOW support center at email@example.com, tweet to @CE_Broker, message us on Facebook, or join us for great conversation on LinkedIn.
