Upon successful completion of any NAfME provided professional development, you will be issued a certificate of completion valued at ‘one contact hour.’ We recommend you to take this certificate to your administrator to determine how it will be applicable in your specific circumstance.

How do I find archived webinars? Archived webinars can be found in NAfME Academy.  Once you purchase a one-year subscription, you will receive a link, username, and password to NAfME Academy.
