ISFAA offers many FREE training opportunities to our members! 

Fall 2020 NASFAA Credential Training Sessions - Starting in September 2020!
For the 2020-2021 year, we have purchased 10 NASFAA Credential Trainings, which will be offered virtually for Fall 2020*. You must be an ISFAA member to attend these FREE sessions – this is one of the many ISFAA membership perks! 

The 2020-2021 trainings may be split into multiple sessions based on the materials and time needed to cover each topic since they are being offered virtually. You will receive the online training log-in information, as well as any training materials, 1-2 days before the session. 

*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. Instead they are offering a 50% discount ($49.50) for those who attend our trainings and want to earn the credential. Details will be sent with the training materials for those who register for a session. We know that many of our members attend these sessions for the professional development and not necessarily to earn the credential, and we hope you will continue to attend the virtual sessions for the 2020-2021 year!
