How to Access the NAfME Academy

  • Members: Access to the NAfME Academy is free for current members of NAfME, a member benefit. The first time you access it, you must register.
  • Nonmembers: There is an annual subscription fee of $95 for nonmembers to access the NAfME Academy (registration is required).
  • If your NAfME membership is expired or you have never been a member, join or renew now. 


  • If your membership is current, access the Academy by registering. The registration process will prompt you to log in to NAfME’s website.
  • Nonmembers will be prompted to pay the $95 annual Academy subscription fee. (Nonmembers who do not have a record in NAfME’s database will be guided to sign up with NAfME first.) After completing payment, you will get access to the Academy.
  • For members and nonmembers, after you access the Academy for the first time, your content will be available to you anytime via the NAfME Learning Center link using your member log in.


  • Once logged into the NAfME Academy, you will be able to view all courses/webinars, search for content by categories or key word search, and self-enroll in any Academy webinar that you like.
  • Once you are enrolled in a webinar in the Academy, you can start and complete it at your own pace.  You can see all your current courses under My Courses. The NAfME Learning Center will track your completion of each webinar. After watching a webinar, you will complete a professional development survey, then gain access to a certificate of completion.
  • The NAfME Learning Center will track and note all the professional development you have earned. You can view your progress by clicking on the Dashboard in the Learning Center and also see that information when you are logged into your NAfME membership profile.
