You will then be Reinstated and new credentials will be sent to you with your original control number. Act now since this amnesty period will not last forever!

All NABEA members must graduate NABEA certification training classes. If you are a member in good standing, you
may attend our classes at no charge.
All classes are taught by Experienced Professional active
bail enforcement agents, who are part of the NABEA.
While training manuals are issued to each participating
student, very little material is read from a book.
The training manual is for the student to refer to
outside the class.
NABEA membership is restricted to those who complete
the NABEA certification course.

**Disclaimer: There are those impostors advertising that the NABEA
has sanctioned their training. THIS IS NOT TRUE. NABEA and it's staff
present training classes and we at the Association do not recognize nor do
we allow individuals or so called "Recovery Groups" to present our classes.
Our classes use the official NABEA manual that is not for public sale.
