The program is free, but you MUST be an NCMA member to start the program. Interested parties are permitted to apply to the program prior to activating NCMA membership. Participants are responsible for travel-related costs to attend in-person training events (SubCon, World Congress, and GCMS). Expenses may be covered fully or partially by employers or local chapters. A budget worksheet is included with the application.
The selection process is a multi-faceted process that involves the following:
- Phase 1 - Completed application with letter of recommendation and resumé/CV
- Phase 2 - Virtual interview
