Step 2 - Register with NAMB and complete self-paced ONLINE ASSIGNMENTS - these assigments are due by March 18. 

After you pay the ABSC using step 1, you'll receive a follow-up email with a link to a North American Mission Board (NAMB) site.  That page will not open until February 10, so if you register in step 1 before February 10,  please note on your calendar to complete the registration with NAMB between February 10 and 17. The purpose of this registration is for the ONLINE portion of the training.  You'll be prompted to create a NAMB account, then you'll register for the online training.  If you do not register for the ONLINE training by February 17, you'll be locked out. Once registered, you'll receive instructions and will have until March 18 to complete the self-paced online course work. You may see on their page that a $35 fee is being charged.  You will not be charged that fee as you proceed through the NAMB registration since you already paid the ABSC in step 1.
