Earn Your Certificate as a Worksite Wellness Specialist or Program Manager
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 NWI Worksite Wellness certificate program gain the knowledge, skills, and tools to assist them in creating and sustaining a culture of wellness within an organization.
Each program will be offered through the NWI Online Learning Portal as a six-week training (includes exam). Offering the same high-quality content as the face-to-face trainings, the online certificate programs allow participants the flexibility of computer-based training with the opportunity to connect virtually with other participants. Participants may view content at their own pace but must complete exercises and respond to discussion board posts each week. The online exam opens in the fifth week and must be completed by the program end date. Online course registration includes digital access to program slides and resources and printable exercise worksheets, with the opportunity to purchase a full-color, spiralbound coursebook of program slides and resources.
To earn a Certificate as a Worksite Wellness Specialist or Program Manager, participants must successfully complete all elements of the online training (including weekly posts to the discussion board) and pass an online exam.
