Certified Broadcast Technologist
Certified Broadcast Technologist (CBT) is a title granted to an individual that successfully meets the experience or examination requirements of the certification. The certification is regulated by the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE). The CBT title is protected by copyright laws. Individuals who use the title without consent from the Society of Broadcast Engineers could face legal action.
The SBE certifications were created to recognize individuals who practice in career fields which are not regulated by state licensing or Professional Engineering programs. Marine Radio and radar systems still require a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license apart from an SBE certification. Broadcast Engineering is regulated at the national level and not by individual states.
