National Certification TM 2021

January 1, 2021 8:00 AM - December 31, 2021 5:00 PM (EST)


SSWAA Members are able to apply for National Certification TM through a self-paced portfolio process. An orientation will be provided to new registrants monthly and applicants should complete the process in one year. National Certification will be good for 3 years with a re-certification process required at that time. To maintain National Certification, holders are expected to keep active membership status at the full or premiere level with SSWAA and fulfill ongoing CEU requirements in their applicable state.

*Because National Certification is an ongoing, self-paced process, refunds are not available.  Individuals can apply for an extension if circumstances interfere with completion of the National Certification process within the one year time frame.
