Welcome to Certified Nonprofit Executive (CNE). The questions that follow ensure your education, training, professional associations, professional contributions and fundraising experience are officially recorded at NANOE's headquarters. The following forms will collect information regarding your vocational achievements.
There are no trick questions. There are no right or wrong answers. Use this opportunity to memorialize your professional accomplishments in support of your CNE Credential.
Questions marked with an * are required. Please NO BLANK FIELDS. If you've determined that a question does not apply please type N/A (not applicable).
The following CNE process document is divided into FIVE sections. Click "Save and Continue Later" at any time to save your progress and be given a custom URL that will bring you back to where you left. You are allowed to exit and return to start a new/next section only. If you leave prior to fully completing a section your work WILL NOT be saved. If you exit the application and return later, you must return to the application using the same computer with which you started the application (a 'cookie' is placed on your computer to tell the server which section to open for you.) Each section begins with the NANOE Logo and is marked "Section 1", etc. Please be sure to click on the "NEXT" box at the end of the section before exiting the application. This alerts the server to save your work for the section just completed.
Thank you for completing the CNE application. Your next steps are to complete the "Credentialing Candidate" form, where you will enter your professional education and training background information. This form will only be required once.
When you click on the "Submit" button below, you will be redirected to the NANOE Credentialing Portal where you will fill out the "Credentialing Candidate" form if you have not done so previously. After completing the "Credentialing Candidate" form, use the following access code to unlock the CNE exam. This code has also been emailed to the email address you provided in Section 1.
