For the first time in 12 years, the Society of Broadcast Engineers has released a new standalone certification. According to a press release from the organization, eligible engineers may now apply to get certified by taking the new Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer exam, intended for broadcast engineers who work closely with digital networking.
The CBNE is an advanced level certification with more complex content than the Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist certification. However, the SBE states, “CBNE does not replace the CBNT, which is a relevant certification for entry-level networking individuals.”
Requirements to qualify for the CBNE exam:five years of broadcast engineering experience.
First exams, which comprise 50 multiple-choice questions and one essay question, will be held June 1–11 with local SBE chapters.
The complete list of certification requirements, exam topics and applications are available on the SBE website.
