“The NMCA training program was my choice for in-depth study of Michael Chekhov’s method of acting. I chose to come from Israel several times and complete the certification program and how the choice paid off!”
-Ofir Duan, Actor & Michael Chekhov Teacher/Coach.

NMCA offers a variety of training programs including certification programs for teachers, actors, directors, and designers, and coaches in NMCA’s pedagogical approach. We encourage expanded applications for human health and development practitioners, because we view life as a work of art. We share NMCA’s Michael Chekhov Technique Playbook which contains extensive charts, lecture notes and resources available to participants for a discounted price.

Train With NMCA in Our Educational Programs

Anyone may participate in our training programs through NMCA. We also offer certification programs in our highly-refined Michael Chekhov pedagogy for teachers, directors, designers, actors, and coaches. There are many certified practitioners around the world, and more receive their certifications every year. Our training programs include the following:
