QBIS and CBIS certifications

QBIS and CBIS are totally different certifications: CBIS requires one to have worked 500+ hours with people with brain injuries. There are currently not enough QBIS training options to have a staff complete the certification upon orientation- the in-person requirement for training for QBISP makes that particularly challenging

What is the timeframe that a person has to get these certifications in?

We recommend that the supervisor should be CBIS certified and the new employee has a certain time frame within they need to get either certification. This will also prevent clients experiencing a gap in services when a case manager leaves their position or waits for their certification.
