The Certificate Program curriculum includes: a selection of sessions offered each year during the annual conference; previously recorded conference sessions available to registered certificate students online; a study guide and workbook (included in the cost of the program); and regional meeting sessions.
Each year of enrollment in the program costs $125, with an expected program duration of two calendar years. The program may be started at any time during the calendar year. Knowing the budgetary constraints that education institutions are under, students are not required to finish the certificate program in consecutive years. Each student’s progress and curriculum completion record will be tracked by NAACO Headquarters.
Each student will receive a certificate of completion for their records (and to demonstrate quantifiable progress to their supervisors) when they finish the curriculum for Year One and Year Two respectively.
