Preparing for Certification 

Individuals seeking certification should note that attending a training course does NOT guarantee success on a certification exam. Passing a certification exam requires amassing knowledge, skills, and abilities over time from a variety of sources; no one course provides all of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to pass a certification exam. Knowledge is gained over time from years of experience in the field; online courses, webinars, and podcasts; in-person seminars and events; hands-on workshops; on-the-job training; local, regional, and national conferences; mentoring programs; trade publications; and more.

Upon completion of the course, SWANA awards participants 30 Professional Development Hours (PDHs), formerly known as continuing education credits (CEUs), to apply toward a current SWANA certification.

SWANA strongly encourages mask wearing in all indoor settings at this time. If the city or venue in which we hold an event requires mask-wearing for anyone – vaccinated or unvaccinated – in an indoor space, SWANA will comply with that requirement. SWANA expects its instructors, students, and staff to comply with the local requirements in place.

Further, SWANA will limit attendance to address social distancing guidelines and provide hand sanitizer in all meeting rooms.

The SWANA Training program is co-located with SOAR 2023, SWANA's premier technical conference, and will be held at the:
