Not for Profit Certificate FAQ's

Professionals who earn the Not-for-Profit Certificate I badge apply core concepts in not-for-profit financial reporting, auditing, governance, and tax compliance concepts. Earners recognize U.S. GAAP reporting standards applicable to not-for-profits and identify basic state and federal filing requirements of exempt organizations. These professionals also identify best practices in nonprofit board governance and the planning steps of a nonprofit audit engagement.

NFP Certificate I: While the program is designed to provide a foundational level of learning, individuals will benefit from having a basic understanding and awareness of financial reporting, auditing, governance and tax terminology and practices.

NFP Certificate II: It is recommended that participants have experience working in an NFP organization, or with an NFP organization.

Designed to be highly interactive, these programs offer multiple opportunities for learning, including case study analysis and several gaming scenarios. Participants will be offered the opportunity to apply their new NFP knowledge in a simulated real-world environment. Tests are presented after each course to allow you to apply what you just learned. There are no additional tests at the end of tracks or when you’ve completed the certificate.

The NFP Certificates are not a professional credential or license, therefore they do not expire. However, we anticipate that some individual courses may be updated every 1-3 years to reflect changes in the industry. For your certificate to remain current, you will need to successfully complete those updated courses. However, updates are likely to be at a fraction of the cost of the original certificate. Plus, you have access to the program for 24 months from purchase, if the courses are updated during that period, you will have access to the updated courses at no additional cost. Completion of these updated courses will earn a new Certificate, with the current year’s date.

You will receive a digital badge. For more information on the digital badge, please see the Digital Badge FAQs. If you prefer a paper certificate, you may download and print your own through the Acclaim site. Just log into your Acclaim account at, go to the digital badge you’ve earned, and click on the download option under the “share” menu associated with that badge.

This varies from individual to individual and is completely dependent upon the time the participant allocates to completing the coursework. A commitment of approximately 40 hours (NFP Certificate I) or 30 hours (NFP Certificate II) will be required for most individuals to successfully complete the programs.
