NWI's Partnership with the Foundation for Financial Wellness
The National Wellness Institute (NWI) has partnered with the Foundation for Financial Wellness (FFW)— whose team includes the former Wellness Program Director at NASA, an award-winning educator, and a top-performing financial advisor—to develop courses that look at financial wellness through the lens of NWI’s Six Dimensions of Wellness model. Typically, people say that after taking part in one of FFW’s learning experience, their employees are less distracted, more engaged, and more satisfied with their work and pay, thus enhancing their overall wellness.
Trainings include two self-paced, interactive eLearning courses that align with the NWI Wellness Promotion Competency model and offer evidence-informed tools and training:
1) A 7-credit* "Financial Wellness Facilitator Certificate" course (includes "The Case for Financial Wellness")
2) A 2-credit "The Case for Financial Wellness" course (Available a la carte or as part of the Facilitator Certificate course. Registration for the a la carte course will open by Feb. 1).
If you complete the standalone course and would later like to register for the Facilitator Certificate course, please contact NWI to receive a $50 discount on your Facilitator Certificate course registration.
*Participants will receive 2 credits for completion of "The Case for Financial Wellness" course (taken either a la carte or as part of the Facilitator Certificate course) and 5 additional credits for the completion of the full Financial Wellness Facilitator Certificate course.
