Glen Ellyn, IL The Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) has announced that its Certified Bearing Specialist (CBS) program — the only bearing industry specific certification program — is now open to manufacturers, not just distributors.

BSA’s CBS offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to demonstrate industry knowledge and the added value that knowledge brings to every bearing industry transaction. The program was originally designed by bearing industry experts for members of the bearing distribution industry.

The CBS program is the only one of its kind in the bearing industry and has been tapped by dozens of industry-leading distribution companies to train hundreds of bearing professionals.

BSA is very happy to invite manufacturer employees to join the distinguished ranks of more than 200 Certified Bearing Specialists worldwide. The association is also offering a special opportunity for early CBS manufacturer registrants:

1. For every manufacturer registrant from now until May 15, the participating company will receive an opportunity to win a complimentary future CBS manufacturer registration. The more CBS registrations submitted, the more opportunities a company has to win a complimentary registration.

2. Winners will be announced at the 2005 annual convention manufacturer sponsored event.

3. All manufacturers submitting CBS registrations will be recognized at the 2005 annual convention.
