On September 24, 2012, Brad Wolverton from the Chronicle of Higher Education wrote an article revealing the National Association for Athletics Compliance (NAAC) would be announcing a new system for educating and certifying its members. The certification requirements, which may begin as soon as August 2013, are intended to enhance educational efforts for compliance administrators and to promote “core competencies” necessary for a successful athletics compliance office.
Further, the certification program is expected to cover at least 10 of the NCAA’s Bylaws and will take approximately three hours to complete. Additionally, the program is not a one-shot deal as administrators will be expected to earn “continuing compliance education” credits as well as attend a minimum of one annual compliance education seminar sponsored by either NAAC or the NCAA.
