Distance Learning Program

NEW May 2016!

NAC Distance Learning Program

Are you unable to attend one of the conference events?

NICCM 's Director Credential Program now has even more options than before. We have created an unparalleled distance learning program.  Unlike most distance/online programs, ours does not require you to be on a "computer" or online learner.  NICCM's distance program is the closest thing to actually being at one of our live events and can be used to get your Texas Director Credential, Florida Director Credential, or National Administrator Credential. 

Whether you need or want to get the program completed within a weekend OR you want to take up to six months, the NICCM distance learning program can be tailored to fit your needs. You can order the program as a correspondance class and have up to 6 months to complete the training for full credential credit. Distance learning students will have the opportunity to receive the credential by completing the program at their own pace.

Participants will be sent the 350 page conference book and DVD video version of the Conference, as well as the Final Examination and the Praxis. They will also be assigned a "mentor" to help them through the program. Participants can contact their mentor by phone or e-mail with questions regarding the Final Exam and Praxis. After watching the DVDs and completeing the Final Exam and Praxis, participants must return the DVD's and the Test. NICCM will then grade the Final Exam and Praxis and mail the certificate.
