Nicole Pearce · March 2, 2022

This is the international registration for the November 25, 2023 Certified Bariatric Exam (CBE). 

Ensure you have read in detail the exam requirements as there are no refunds once the payment has been processed.

For those healthcare professionals practicing outside of Canada or not licensed in Canada, and meet all other criteria you will be eligible to write the examination but upon successful completion you will NOT receive the CBE® designation. Instead, candidates will be issued an equivalency certificate indicating successful completion.

To qualify to write the CBE® exam you are required to complete the Obesity Canada Introduction to Obesity Course.

You are required to show proof that you meet ALL of the below requirements: 

  1. You are a registered healthcare professional with a license in good standing with a regulatory body in Canada.*
  2. You must have completed the Introduction to Obesity Course.
  3. You must have a minimum of 700 hours of practical obesity experience** within the last 5 years. A letter from your employer is required as verification that you have the practical experience.

You are responsible for ensuring your documentation is submitted correctly once you purchase the course. If you do not adhere to the submission requirement you will not be eligible to write the exam. 

*If you are outside of Canada, you are eligible to write the examination but will not receive the official designation. Certificates of successful completion of the examination will be issued instead.

**Practical obesity experience includes education***, management, advice or care.

*** Obesity Canada endorsed education includes: Canadian Advanced Learning in Bariatric Care (Calibre) training program, Canadian Obesity Summit (COS), European Congress on Obesity (ECO), Obesity Week, and the Harvard Blackburn Course in Obesity Medicine.
