Live Virtual Courses:

NAMSS is excited to offer virtual courses in order to support MSPs interested in expanding their knowledge. Our re-designed Virtual Courses can take place over the course of 2 - 6 weeks and provide both live instruction from experienced NAMSS instructors via Zoom and interactive modules through our Education Zone for a dynamic learning experience.

Whether it is an exam preparation course to prepare you to take the CPCS® or CPMSM® exam, or our Credentialing 101 or Credentialing 201 courses, for each session, you will receive reading and course materials to review and complete prior to the next live Zoom session. Live sessions will be facilitated by experienced NAMSS instructors. You will review coursework, be able to ask questions, and take part in group discussions with your peers in the workshop.
