|Worksite Wellness Certificate Programs|
Companies, insurance providers, and other organizations are taking steps to improve employee productivity, health, resilience, and satisfaction. Thus, a greater need for competent wellness professionals to implement evidence-driven practices that encourage wellness-enhancing behaviors has emerged.
Supported by current research and best practices, NWI’s multi-level Worksite Wellness Certificate Program is recognized as a premier training program for worksite wellness, human resources, benefits, and interdisciplinary professionals who are working to ensure a well workforce. Participants in the Worksite Wellness Specialist and Program Manager trainings gain the knowledge, skills, and tools to assist them in creating and sustaining a culture of wellness within an organization.
To earn a Certificate as a Worksite Wellness Specialist and/or Worksite Wellness Program Manager, participants must participate in the full training and successfully complete an online exam within two weeks of the training for each level of certificate desired. In-person trainings (2 days per level) are held throughout the year at various locations through the United States, including each summer at the National Wellness Conference. NWI's Worksite Wellness Certificate Program will also be available online by early 2017.

What is a Professional Certificate Program?
Certificate programs enhance continuing education with relevant and timely training and are not substitutions for degrees. NWI applies the following definitions (derived from the National Commission for Certifying Agencies’ Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs, www.credentialingexcellence.org/ncca) to differentiate between a Professional Certificate Program Certification Program and a Certification:
Professional Certificate Program:
Certification Program: A voluntary process that grants a time-limited credential to individuals meeting predetermined standards for knowledge, skills, or competencies. The assessment of the individual applicant is independent of a specific class, course, or other education/training program. Certificants must complete continuing education requirements to retain the credential. More about NWI’s Certified Wellness Practitioner (CWP) certification program.
