Terms of Use



Candidate ID Agreement
Welcome to ASBO International and the ASBO International suite of certification programs.

As a first time user of this web site, we want to inform you of the steps required to set up an account and to emphasize the importance of keeping your contact information current.

After reviewing and agreeing to these terms, depending upon which link you click, you will eventually be taken to the "New Registration - Candidate Record" page to begin the account creation process by filling in personal information such as email address, employer and Partner Company (if this field is pre-filled in be sure to verify it is correct, if not simply change it to the correct partner company) and all the required fields or to the "Edit Personal Information" page to add or verify the Partner Company and complete all the required fields.

New users to the system will be issued a candidate ID and directed to complete the account activation process.

Be sure to keep all of your contact information current through the "Update Personal Info" link in order to ensure we can contact you as necessary (i.e. important emails, certification achievement kits).

Additionally, it's a good practice to occasionally log in to your account to, among other things, review your certification progress; manage notifications you may or may not want to receive; review program requirements; audit your account history and familiarize yourself with new features that are periodically implemented. Through your account you can also log incidents; communicate with customer support; and publish your certifications to potential employers.

Clicking any of the links below simply acknowledges that you reviewed this information - it does not constitute any agreements of participation in the ASBO International certification programs.

If you already have an ASBO International account, simply link to the Login page by clicking the "I agree to these terms and have a candidate ID and username" and either directly log in or go through the Password Recovery process.

If you have a Score Report, click the link "I agree to these terms and have a Score Report".

If you do not have a username nor a Score Report, click the link "I agree to these terms and want to register".

Again, welcome to ASBO International.
