Volunteer with CBSI

Volunteering is an excellent opportunity for personal growth and professional development. Volunteers enjoy collaboration with colleagues, improving their skill sets, and strengthening our profession. Please consider adding your talents to the work of distinguishing Structural Integration. The work of the Certification Board is divided into a number of committees so volunteers can make a difference without a large time burden. Please consider what interests you the most and contact our CBSI Chair, Ryan Hofer, at [email protected].

We are looking for people like you who have a unique understanding of how Structural Integration is practiced. The Certification Exam for Structural Integration is continually evolving, as is the body of Structural Integration knowledge. You can provide us with invaluable exam content by helping us write questions that test knowledge of our profession.  By submitting potential new questions, you can add to the item bank, thereby contributing to the collective voice of SI practitioners. We also need volunteers to review new item submissions and conduct CESI revisions with our psychometrician consultants. You can also serve as a Subject Matter Expert as we periodically revise the Practice Analysis for SI.
