Certification Preparation Session
Tools & Tips for Preparing
Prepare for your upcoming CWEA certification exam by participating in this interactive session. Our trained moderators will share how to use the many resources and tools to get you on the path to your certification. You’ll review the CWEA Path to Certification and delve into the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA’s) that make up the core of your vocation. Use the newly developed KSA Gap Analysis Tool to identify areas to focus while studying. After reviewing the tools and tips for preparing for your exam, you’ll divide into vocation focused groups and learn more about specific ways to study and prepare. You’ll be given an action plan tool sheet for you to fill out and use throughout the day to track your action items and plan your next steps. You’ll leave this workshop with a better idea of what areas you need to focus on as you prepare for your exam.
Learn how to make your path to certification a smooth one.
