Become accredited and recognized with the only national association supporting workplace health and performance (AKA workplace wellness practitioners) in Canada. We offer an innovative, simple-to-use, assessment, learning, and validation process to get you accredited. This is the first certification of its kind available in Canada that recognizes existing competencies and supports ongoing growth and development to support you in building healthy, high performing work cultures.
There are three levels that build on each other.
Ambassador: This certification is perfect for everyday ambassadors and leaders who are responsible for supporting workplace health and performance as a part, or all, of your role. It is perfect for anyone wanting to build their skill set to build a healthy, high performing work culture.
Practitioner: This level is for those who have, or are aspiring towards, a full-time career in workplace health and wellness. It is the only Canadian industry accreditation.
Expert: This level is for experienced practitioners or consultants that can provide evidence of demonstrated impact.
The process is asynchronous, and you have the choice of going through in a paced cohort (with the added benefit of additional networking opportunities) or starting any time (with the added benefit of taking as along or as little as you like).
Employer members can certify as many employees as they wish, however there is a $247 assessment fee per employee. We encourage all wellness champions/ambassadors to get certified. Unlike other courses, the process assesses and validates your current competencies and supports you with education, practical tools, and resources you need to succeed in building healthy, high performing work cultures. Those pursuing and/or maintaining certification must be a current member of Wellness Works Canada (as an individual or as a part of an organization) and obtain a minimum of four hours of professional development credits per year for the ambassador level and eighteen credits for the practitioner and/or expert level.
