|Certified Worksite Wellness Specialist|
NWI has restructured its certification and professional certificate process. Click here to learn more about this new structure, including how it affects any current NWI certifications you may hold.
The NWI Certified Worksite Wellness Specialist (CWWS) program uses the most current information and research in the field to deliver the tools required to carry out a successful worksite wellness program. This program differentiates itself from other worksite wellness certifications in the market in that it focuses on the importance of changing the organizational culture to ensure long-term results. Course content is frequently reviewed and updated to ensure the most up-to-date information. A number of organizations have approved NWI's worksite wellness programs for continuing education credit.
Certification requires participation in a two-day, in-person course and successful completion of an online certification exam within two weeks of the training. Individuals who receive a passing grade receive an official certificate via e-mail, hold the CWWS designation for three years, and are eligible to complete the Certified Worksite Wellness Program Manager (CWWPM) certification program. (To meet eligibility requirements for CWWPM, individuals may participate in both the CWWS and CWWPM trainings when both are offered at the same location/time.) Note: Individuals attending a CWWS or CWWPM training program after July 1, 2016, will earn a Professional Certificate as a Worksite Wellness Specialist or Program Manager, but may not use the CWWS or CWWPM credentials after their name.
Program participants include worksite wellness coordinators and managers, human resource professionals, occupational health nurses, employee assistance professionals, insurance and benefit providers and brokers, and other individuals seeking training and certification in worksite wellness.
Trainings take place throughout the United States. For a list of upcoming trainings and to register, click here.
