Pre-Approval of LGARA Certificate Credits

Training events that fulfill any of the LGARA Core Competencies may be pre-approved for LGARA Certificate credits. You, the training host, will provide NAGARA with information about the content and duration of the event; in turn, NAGARA will provide you with an LGARA pre-approval code that you may use in marketing materials. 

Attendees using a pre-approval code on the LGARA Certificate application need only to provide NAGARA with documentation of attendance. 

To receive pre-approval, a training event must meet the following criteria: 

  • Content covers one or more of the LGARA Core Competencies (you will be asked to indicate which competency areas your training fulfills)
  • Training content is at least one hour in duration
  • Attendees are provided with proof of attendance 

To apply for pre-approval of your training event, please complete the LGARA Certificate Pre-Approval Request form below. You will be asked to provide details about your training event, contact information, the number of credits requested, and the competency area(s) that your training fulfills. 

Please allow 3-4 weeks to process your pre-approval request. For any questions, please e-mail
