Application Process

Online application opening soon!

Applying for the NACD Directorship Certification™ will be a simple, online process.  When registration becomes available, you will be able to confirm your eligibility and directorship experience, register for your foundation course, request ADA testing accommodations if applicable, and pay for the program. Once your registration has been submitted, you will receive detailed instructions about how to schedule your exam and be given access to the exam study guide.


During the application process, you will be asked to sign an affidavit to confirm that all of the information you provide about yourself and your directorship experience is true.

Policies and Agreements

As part of the application process, applicants will also be required to review and acknowledge their acceptance of various important policies and agreements as listed in the NACD Directorship Certification Handbook (coming soon).
