Attention all interested in receiving National Certification in 
Literary Braille (NCLB):

The National Blindness Professional Certification Board (NBPCB) would 
like to again offer NCLB braille certification at the NFB National 
Convention in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = 
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Dallas this July. The 
NCLB is the only nationally recognized certification in literary 
braille geared specifically toward teachers. The NCLB is a five-year 
renewable certification awarded to those who successfully pass all 
four sections of the National Literary Braille Competency Test. The 
cost is $250.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

If you are interested in testing at the NFB national convention, we 
request that you fill out our brief online interest form with a note 
that you are interested in testing in Dallas. Please do so before 
February 10th. This is an interest form only and is NOT an 
application. A sufficient number of candidates are needed before the 
test room can be scheduled; Thus, by filling out the interest form 
you are increasing the chances that the exam will be offered. You 
will be notified of the decision by mid February.
