NASFAA Credential Trainings
For the 2020-2021 year, ISFAA purchased 10 NASFAA Credential Trainings, which will be offered virtually*. The 2020-2021 trainings may be split into multiple sessions based on the materials and time needed to cover each topic. You will receive the online training log-in information, as well as any training materials, 1-2 days before the session. You must be an ISFAA member to attend these FREE sessions – this is one of the many ISFAA membership perks! 

*NASFAA has extended the ability to offer credential training sessions virtually through June 30, 2021. However, NASFAA feels the online sessions are not as likely to prepare you to take the credential as the in-person sessions were, so you may need to do additional preparation on your own to take the credential exam. Because of this, we are not able to offer voucher codes for the free credential exams this year. Instead NASFAA is offering a 50% off discount code ($49.50) for those who attend our trainings and want to earn the credential. The discount code will be provided at each training session.
