Leadership Certificate Program Required Online Modules

The demand for leaders within the medical services profession is on the rise. If you are ready to take on a leadership role within your work place, the NAMSS Leadership Certificate Program will get you there.

Through a series of both live instructor led sessions and online learning modules, the Leadership Certificate Program allows MSPs dedicated to the field to expand on their experiences and gain the skills, confidence, and industry understanding to be stronger leaders within the industry.

These Leadership Certificate Program Online Modules are required in order to receive CE credits and earn the NAMSS Leadership Program Certificate. In addition to completing these online modules, one must register for and attend all live course sessions of an offering of the Live Leadership Certificate Program (either in-person or virtually via Zoom) AND present and receive a passing score on a capstone project demonstrating key learnings from the program.

The Online Modules are designed for MSPs dedicated to the field to expand on their experiences and gain the skills, confidence, and industry understanding to be stronger leaders within the industry and their facilities. The NAMSS Leadership online modules have been designed to explore the various facets of leadership faced by MSPs, including project management, compliance, human resources, finance, and negotiations. These modules provide guidance and training on how to further develop those skills.

Each online module takes about one to two hours to complete but we encourage participants to run through each module slowly and take them as many times as you need to feel confident and comfortable with the material. You will have access to the online modules for a full year.
