Certification in Workplace Wellness Compliance (CWC)© Designation

Because the Wellness Compliance Institute (WCI) believes in empowering the workplace wellness community with knowledge about how to design and implement a compliant workplace wellness program, it makes perfect sense to offer individuals who have studied workplace wellness compliance a Certification.  This designation will give you additional credibility when advising and managing workplace wellness programs.

Re-Certification: Keeping Your Certification Current

Because laws are always evolving, it is important for the CWC© professional to stay of abreast of any changes with workplace wellness laws. Barbara J. Zabawa, lead author of Rule the Rules of Workplace Wellness Laws, will be periodically preparing written supplements that address changes in workplace wellness laws. For example, she has already prepared a supplement reflecting changes that have occurred since the Rule the Rules book was published in 2017.

To renew the WCI certification, the CWC© professional will need to review the supplement(s) and take a quiz covering the content. An 80% score is required. There is a small fee ($50) to recertify.

More information regarding re-certification will be sent to individuals upon receiving the CWWCP© designation.

Certification Fee

The fee is $450 plus shipping and handling costs and includes all materials/costs associated with the Continuing Education course as stated on the Continuing Education page.
