The PAUMCS certification course in online this year. Course work can begin on June 1st. All courses are taken online, and there will be a group project available at the Annual Conference in Chicago in April 2017. You do not need to complete the group project in Chicago to become certified. Each course within the online PAUMCS Certification for Church Secretaries and Administrative Assistants is self-paced and progresses based on the learner's own schedule. Each time the learner returns to the course, the automatic bookmark will keep track of where the course was left off last and take the learner directly to that place within the course. Once a course is completed, the learner will be able to begin another course within the certification curriculum. All modules must be completed by August 19th, which gives you 2 ½ months to complete the course. When you save a module you can go directly to where you left off.
