In 2015, NAMA introduced the Professional Ayurvedic Continuing Education (PACE) initiative as a part of our association’s ongoing work to ensure the professional growth and success of Ayurveda in the United States.
NAMA professional members agree to obtain continuing education credits in order to deepen their knowledge and keep their skills current.
NAMA professional members are required to earn the following credits every two years. Current professional members who joined before June 30, 2016 have until December 31, 2017 to satisfy their continuing education requirements for the current PACE cycle.
How to Earn PACE Credits
Professional Members have three paths for earning PACE credits.
