Becoming an NCMA Continuing Education Facilitator
A unique opportunity is available to NCMA members to become authorized as an NCMA Continuing Education Facilitator (CEF). As an authorized NCMA CEF, the individual can give NCMA-approved education sessions to architects for continuing education credit through the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (AIA/CES).
Authorization requires initial training, which can be obtained through the NCMA Concrete Products University (CPU Online) on-demand education system. Many of the courses that are available on this system are registered for credit through AIA/CES, and an NCMA CEF can be authorized for any of those registered programs. Following the initial training process, authorized CEF’s can choose any additional courses they wish to be authorized to present for credit.
The first step in the authorization process begins with completing initial training. To do this:
Once you complete authorization for any module, NCMA staff will send you a speaker authorization form for each program you become authorized to present. Once that form is signed and returned, we will send you a download link to the presentation and other necessary forms.
These presentations come with speaker notes, and now they also contain the narration used by NCMA staff to present the information in the education modules. This narration may be helpful to you for preparing to give these presentations. Instructions on how to prepare the presentations and remove narration will also be provided in the download folder with the relevant files.
