Update on NIAA Certification


On January 1, 2019, candidates for RAA, RMSAA, and CAA designations will require Leadership Training Course 503 to the requisite requirements of established criteria. In addition, Leadership Training Course 510 will be required for CMAA designations. To be eligible for certification under the current criteria, all requirements for any designation must be completed prior to January 1, 2019.

The NIAAA has created a product bundle for any member that wishes to attain the CAA designation prior to January 1, 2019 and has not yet completed any of the required Leadership Training Courses. This bundle includes the online offering of LTCs 501, 502, 504, and 506 along with a suggested timeline for completion, study materials, and the Personal Data Form. The NIAAA is offering this bundle for a discounted rate of $550 (originally $650) to current members that qualify*.


*Qualifying members will have met all of the requirements outlined in the Personal Data Form (click here to view a sample PDF) including, but not limited to: a minimum of two years as an active athletic administrator, a bachelor's degree, employed by (or retired from) a school, school district or state high school athletic/activities association in such capacity that the administration of interscholastic athletics is (was) among job responsibilities. Each student is expected to schedule and successfully complete his/her exam prior to January 1, 2019. If the requirements are not met by December 31, 2018, the student must adhere to the new requirements and complete LTC 503 prior to sitting for the exam.
