The Eye Bank Association of America offers the opportunity to attain Certified Eye Bank Technician (CEBT) status through an electronic examination administered by an outside educational testing agency. In addition, a candidate for eye bank technician certification must successfully demonstrate proficiency in the recovery of corneoscleral rims, which must be witnessed and verified by the candidate’s Medical Director and Technical Trainer.
Once certification is awarded, CEBT status will expire on December 31st, three years from the date of certification. Recertification may be obtained by earning 16 continuing education units (CEUs), and meeting the EBAA course requirements within the three-year period. Refer to the section on recertification for further details.
