CWP Eligibility Verification
(optional for most; submit by 8/15 for Sept. exam)

Review the CWP Exam Eligibility Pathway before requesting verification of your eligibility or registering for the CWP exam. For most candidates, submission of the CWP Eligibility Verification Form (see below) is optional.
Eligibility Review Options & Fee
Who should request eligibility verification?
    • If your education places you in the first or second pathway:
      You have the option to request a pre-screening by completing the Eligibility Verification Form below if you are unsure if your degree or professional experience qualify you to sit for the exam.
    • If you hold a non-wellness-related Associate degree, high school diploma, or equivalent (Pathway 3):
      A pre-screening is required for you to provide evidence of five years' professional wellness experience (or four years experience plus 15 hours of recent continuing education).

In both cases, a $25 review fee must be submitted to receive access to the form.
You must sign in to LearnWELL to pay the review fee, and then return to here to complete the form. If you do not have a current NWI membership or a free Guest account, please create or update your NWI account now.

Note: Submitting the CWP Eligibility Verification Form does not guarantee eligibility to sit for the CWP exam nor does it predict your performance on the certification exam.
