Career-Based Intervention Endorsement Program

The Career-Based Intervention Program (CBIP) is a Career-Technical Education Program designed for students ages 12-21 in grades 7-12 who are identified as disadvantaged (either academically or economically or both) or students with disabilities and who have barriers to achieving academic and career success. The goal of the program is to help students improve academic competence, graduate from high school, develop employability skills, implement a career plan and participate in a career pathway in preparation for postsecondary education and/or careers.

Coursework at Kent State University prepares educators for an endorsement for the Career-Based Intervention Program (CBIP). Educators earning this endorsement must already have a bachelor's degree and a current Ohio Professional License.

Please note that you do not need to have all the coursework completed before you can start teaching Career-Based Intervention.  You can teach on an Initial Supplemental license while taking the required coursework.  However, if you are not teaching CBI and would like to teach it in the future, you can take the required coursework to add the CBI Endorsement.
