The ABJA is sponsoring a Certified Bankruptcy Assistant (CBA) Seminar and Exam on October 18 and 19, 2016, along with a Professional Skills Seminar on October 20 and 21, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The two-day certification program includes training workshops with an exam administered at the end of each day. The exam has four sections, each consisting of 25-50 questions, on grammar usage and writing, the Bankruptcy Code and Rules, ethics, and research and legal citation. The University of New Orleans, numerous judges, professionals, and practitioners in the bankruptcy field, in cooperation with the ABJA, developed a study guide that is provided to registered participants in advance of the program.
With the CBA title comes the responsibility to maintain a high degree of knowledge and proficiency in the bankruptcy field by obtaining a minimum of .6 Continuing Education Units (which is equivalent to 6 classroom hours) every two years to maintain certification.
