Following a recommendation by the Conseil Régional de Concertation et de Développement de la région de Québec (CRCDQ) to create a volunteer experience recognition program in Quebec, the Centre d'action bénévole de Québec (CABQ) developed PREB in 2002.

Through PREB, volunteer experience and skills gained during volunteer positions are recognized as work experience by professional organizations and companies.

Thanks to a three-year partnership (2012-2015) between CABQ and Volunteer Canada, PREB was re-branded and launched nationally in 2013. PREB was available in Quebec with support from the Secrétariat à l'action communautaire autonome et aux initiatives sociales (SACAIS). It was available throughout Canada thanks to support from Investors Group.

In 2014, an adaptation of the PREB system was developed specifically for the province of Ontario. PREB-Ontario (later renamed Achieve Ontario) was a Pan Am/Parapan Am Games' Volunteer Legacy Initiative and was sponsored by the Government of Ontario. In 2015, 23,000 individuals who volunteered at the Toronto Games were the first to receive PREB Certificates from the PREB-Ontario program.

With the objectives of offering the platform to a greater number of Canadian non-profit organizations and facilitating the training process, Volunteer Canada and the Centre d'action bénévole de Québec (CABQ) undertook a revision of the program and relaunched it in a new, completely online format with a new bilingual name. In 2020, PREB became Experience Plus (EXP+), the online platform for the recognition volunteer experience available online across the country.
