NASFAA Self-Study Guides

NASFAA University Self Study GuidesNASFAA Self-Study Guides are the answer to your training needs. Written for the independent learner, each Self-Study Guide includes multiple lessons with a variety of exercises to reinforce each lesson. You'll study independently and take quizzes in a traditional paper format (not online). Then you can qualify to take the related credential test and potentially earn a NASFAA Professional Credential. NASFAA Self-Study Guides are available for purchase in our online store as downloadable PDF documents.
