The Board Governance certificate requires you to be able to attend all 4 parts.  You may register for all four courses by going to Board Fundamentals: Part 1 course (Sept. 14th, 2020).  Here are the dates of the other core courses for the Board Governance Certificate:

Board Fundamentals: Part 1 - Sept. 14, 2020

Board Fundamentals: Part 3 will provide an understanding of board financial requirements, and address hidden traps that all new board members should be aware of. Lead by board expert and member of KraftCPAs, Becky Harrell, participants will learn specific nonprofit accounting and financial statement reporting requirements. Participants will discuss why it is important to understand financial statements, as well as the consequences of making bad financial decisions as a board member. Through examining case studies and real-life stories, participants will leave more confident in their ability to assess the financial health of an organization.
