Certified School Business Official is a protected title under Alberta's Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act and the School Business Officials Regulation. This means that to call yourself a Certified School Business Official (CSBO), you must be a registered member of the Association of School Business Officials of Alberta (ASBOA). You do not have to be registered if you do not call yourself a Certified School Business Official.

What You Need

Registration as a Certified School Business Official requires acceptable academic qualifications, three years of related experience, regular membership in ASBOA and completion of school law and administration courses recognized by the ASBOA executive. For official, detailed information about registration requirements, visit the ASBOA website or contact ASBOA.

Working in Alberta

School business officials who are registered by and in good standing with a regulatory organization elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta if registered school business officials in the two jurisdictions have similar responsibilities and competencies. For more information, see "What if I am already certified in another province or territory?" and the Alberta regulatory authority (below).
