Continuing Education for Wellness in Clinical Practice Program

Continuing education credits (CECs) for certifications/licenses currently held by program participants may be purchased when registering for the NWI Wellness in Clinical Practice (WCP) Professional Certificate Program. A processing fee per CEC provider is required when registering for CECs. (The processing fee is not required when registering for "NWI” CECs toward re-certification of an NWI Certified Wellness Practitioner certification currently held by the WCP participant.) Individuals who successfully complete the WCP program and complete the evaluation form earn 40 continuing education credits.

Participants have 120 days from the date their registration confirmation e-mail is sent to complete the full 20-unit course. If registered for continuing education credits (CECs), participants must also complete an online post-program evaluation no later than two weeks following completion of the final exam before a CEC certificate will be issued. CEC certificates will be e-mailed within three weeks of receiving the completed evaluation.
