Computer-Based Instruction (CBI)

Enter CBI Online

The Computer-Based Instruction (CBI) features a game-based learning design and separate learning tracks for adults and young adults age 13 and older. You can earn a certificate of completion for successfully completing each module.

Accessing the CBI from a slow internet connection may cause brief response delays. We suggest a set of minimum computer requirements for optimal use.

If you stop the online CBI while in progress, upon logging back in, the program will continue where you stopped.

A CD-ROM version can be ordered at Money Smart – Learn ( for those without internet access. When using the CBI CD-ROM, you must use the same computer that you used the previous time. This will allow the program to continue where you stopped.
