Be a culture-changer and a wellness leader in your organization.

Your main CWPS training course will prepare you for the CWPS certification exam, and thoroughly covers the following topics:

  • Mental health foundations will be covered, including anxiety, stress, and burnout. Participants will gain insight into common mental illnesses and disorders, and will learn extensively about managing coworkers who are in crisis or having thoughts of suicide. Family work/life balance will be included in the training, and the program will also teach elements of depression, grief, hurt, anger and fear and how it affects individuals in the workplace. Additionally participants will learn about addiction and compulsions.
  • The workplace culture and its relation to mental wellness will be covered, including topics like the pressure to succeed, interacting with coworkers, common workplace stressors, the environment, and leadership stress.
  • Creating a Wellness Program is the point of this program, and the training sessions will thoroughly cover conducting a needs assessment, essential program elements, implementation of a program, changing the culture, peer advocacy, education & training, corporate responsibility, 3rd party resources, coaching vs. counseling, and workplace violence.
  • Leadership is part of being a Certified Wellness Programs Specialist, and participants will learn about the privilege and responsibility, as well as expectations of a wellness leader. The importance of setting an example and confidentiality are also topics covered.
  • Being a Certified Wellness Programs Specialist is not meant to be an easy thing. The program is rigorous and thorough. Once complete, participants may take the certification exam, and we'll be here to help with exam preparation, 1-on-1 tutoring sessions pre-exam, and we'll walk in detail through the renewal and Continuing Education (CE) process for maintaining certification.

The training course uses a well-rounded approach, with expertise in mental health as well as the medical side being integrated into each session. The program will fully prepare participants to be a wellness programs leader, no matter the size or mission of the organization. Participants will gain knowledge of mental health foundations, so as to understand most workplace and employee challenges and scenarios, and be able to assist and lead toward solutions.

Once participants pass the certification exam, they become part of an online community with other CWPS graduates, to provide support for each other in the wellness leadership role. This is a place for discussion, advice, and to ask questions of peers who have valuable experience to share.


The program is 100% online in a convenient platform that you can access from anywhere (with a reliable internet connection) and is accessible via computer, tablet or smartphone. You will have access to the 40-hour training program for 120 days, with a recommended timeline for completing the content, but with time to catch-up, review, and study for the exam. 

You will receive a printed/bound workbook in the mail after enrolling, but also included will be a downloadable PDF workbook option. You will use the workbook for note-taking, studying, and then which will serve as your long-term reference guide.


Once you complete the training course you may take the certification exam. You must pass with at least a 90% score, and you will have 2 attempts to pass. Once you pass, you will have earned the certification and the credentials of Certified Wellness Programs Specialist (CWPS).


Each year you will be required to renew your certification, and after your first year you will be required to complete 2 CE (continuing education) hours through Center of Training.
