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.

The SWANA Training will be held at the:
