With new content and requirements rolling out for the NTPI program in 2021, NAEA HIGHLY encourages those that have already begun the process to complete it before their content expires. See below for a graphic and written representation of how to finish the program.

Started NTPI Program Prior to 2016 without Completion

If you started your NTPI journey prior to 2016 the content has expired. You can retake Level 1 and 2 starting in 2021 to receive the updated curriculum.

Completed Level 1 from 2016 – 2020

If you have completed the online 2018 NTPI Level 1 package or in person Level 1 at a conference dating 2016 or later, you can move directly on to the new 2021 Level 2 content.

Completed Level 1 and 2 from 2016 – 2020

If you have completed the NTPI Level 1 and 2 at an in-person conference dating 2016 or later we HIGHLY encourage you to finish your NTPI Level 3 in 2021. The new NTPI Level 3 content is compatible with the new NTPI Level 1 and 2 content so there is no duplication or overlap.

Started Level 1 and/or 3 at 2020 EA Digital Forum and Representation Academy

If you started level 1 or 3 at the 2020 EA Digital Forum and/or Representation Academy but were not able to complete it before the content expired, you can purchase the individual courses needed to complete both levels. More information on classes needed to complete and how to purchase found below. Once you have completed all the courses from the 2020 Level 1 and 3 you can move directly to the 2021 Level 2 to complete the program.
