NBPCB

The National Blindness Professional Certification Board (NBPCB) was created to certify qualified specialists in work with the blind. At present, the Certification Board oversees four certifications - the National Orientation and Mobility Certification (NOMC), the National Certification in Rehabilitation Teaching for the Blind (NCRTB), the National Certification in Literary Braille (NCLB), and the National Certification in Unified English Braille (NCUEB).

 

The National Orientation and Mobility Certification (NOMC) emphasizes nonvisual instruction, and Structured Discovery Cane Travel ™.

 

The National Certification in Rehabilitation Teaching for the Blind (NCRTB) emphasizes nonvisual instruction through Structured Discovery Rehabilitation Teaching methods and principles.

 

The National Certification in Literary Braille (NCLB) is specifically intended for teachers working with blind children or adults. All those who are certified will hold valid certification until their expiration date; however, it is no longer offered and has been replaced with the NCUEB.

 

The National certification in Unified English Braille (NCUEB) is specifically intended for professionals working with blind children or adults.

 

The NBPCB has also developed an approval process for orientation training centers who utilize Structured Discovery methodology throughout their programs and a consumer-focused approach.
