You'll find all the forms and documentation you need here!


Our new website interface does not currently allow for online tracking of your certificate credits; this feature will be added in the next year.  In the meantime, credit will be tracked through the VAM office.  If you attend a VAM workshop, your credit will automatically be added to your file after you've attended the workshop.  If you attend a non-VAM workshop, or the VAM conference, email with your completed form (see below for the non-VAM form; conference forms are in each year's printed program), just as you have been doing.

Independent Study Request Form

Up to 2 of your ten certificate credits can be fulfilled using independent studies. Review this form for details, and fill it out in order to request such a credit. All independent study requests go through the certificate review committee.
