Indianapolis - Apr 12, 2012 - The Society of Broadcast Engineers has created a new level of certification called the Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer (CBNE). The certification level is aimed at those who work closely with computer networking. The CBNE is an advanced level certification and therefore the content is more complex than the Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist (CBNT) certification. The CBNE does not replace the CBNT, which is a relevant certification for entry-level networking individuals.

The CBNE requires a minimum of 5-years of broadcast engineering experience to qualify for the certification exam. The first exams take place during the June 2012 exam session with local SBE chapters. Examinees must answer 50 multiple-choice questions and one essay question during the exam. It is not necessary to hold the SBE's CBNT certification to apply for the CBNE.

SBE President Ralph Hogan, CPBE DRB CBNT, and SBE Certification Committee member Terry Baun, CPBE AMD CBNT, led the efforts to create the new certification level.This is the first time in 12 years that a standalone certification has been released by the SBE.

To help candidates prepare for the exam, the SBE CertPreview study tool quizzes users on more than 50 questions similar to those on the actual exam. After taking the sample test, users may reexamine any missed questions. The user is then provided the reference book information used to create the question for additional study purposes. SBE CertPreview for CBNE is available for download or on CD on the SBE website.
