The CCWS Program
Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist® is a certification of expertise offered by the Corporate Health & Wellness Association (CHWA). The certification requires 11 Modules of training/classes, and can be completed either live in-person at a CHWA event, or online.
In order to maintain certification after the required training, Certified Corporate Wellness Specialists® must complete five hours per year of continuing education credits to stay up-to-date with industry best-practices and standards. The CCWS course is split into over 60 modular units. This number continues to grow as new practices are defined and incorporated by our clients and partners. By undertaking the course you ally yourself with our parent organization, the Corporate Health & Wellness Association, and become a part of a much larger professional network.
The Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist® is the foremost designation available in the wellness and well-being field.
