Why Do You Need Certification?

You need certification....

     - to consolidate and validate your knowledge,

     - to differentiate yourself from your competituors,

     - to establish your credibility in a field with few recognized benchmarks,

     - to  keep your knowledge fresh and updated.

The WellCertsm Program Will Help Take You to the Next Level!


"I chose this  wellness certification program because of its comprehensive focus on corporate wellness rather than one aspect, like coaching or physical fitness....I didn't have to work very hard to sell it to my colleagues. Many firms are in varying stages of providing corporate wellness consulting and related services to their clients. The wellness movement has become so strong that my certification in this program has helped us stay ahead of our competition."                                                                                            - Wellness Consultant, HR Consulting Company

The field of corporate wellness has reached a new level of ROI impact, and complexity.  To meet these ever-changing demands, employers are looking for thoughtful leaders who can harness the full power of wellness on behalf of employers and shareholders. 

Other certification programs place focus on clinical content or personal coaching.  WellCertsm has one goal, to shape leaders who are capable of capturing the full benefits of wellness for their organizations.  This demands a comprehensive approach that covers all the various aspects of effective management of the human capital of an organization.

WellCertsm is one of the largest and oldest Worksite Wellness certification program in the world, having trained more than 3,000 individuals since 2006.
