Certification

Congratulations to those obtaining national certification level of CAA or CMAA!

The NIAAA Certification Program is a voluntary professional service to athletic administrators with various levels of experience and preparation.  The attainment of professional certification demonstrates the completion of a comprehensive plan for self-improvement that will enhance the ability of the athletic administrator to better serve his or her school, community and profession.  There are four levels:  RAA, RMSAA, CAA, CMAA.

For more information you may visit the NIAAA website or contact Jeff Dietze, jeffdietze1@verizon.net or 703-915-8528

  • All Certification Applications are in the Online Store.
  • Also, the PDF's have been changed. For the security of our members, the credit card information has been removed. When a PDF with a credit card payment has been received an invoice will be created and the applicant will receive an email for them to pay the invoice. We will not be taking any credit card numbers over the phone or by email.
