Congratulations on passing your CWIP Certification...

You’ve done it – gotten your CWIP certification! WIPA invites you to watch the below 9 minute video from WIPA’s 2022 President, Meghan Ely. Then, scroll down to access promotional resources that we’ve put together to help announce your new accomplishment to the wedding world.

Now what?

Achieving your CWIP designation demonstrates that you have mastered the knowledge needed to be an effective wedding professional in the event industry; to keep the designation, you must demonstrate that you are staying abreast of proven practices and emerging trends in the industry.

Every five years, your certification cycle expires. To recertify, you will need to provide proof of continuing education. This is done by uploading evidence to your online profile. Since you already have and will continue to have access to your online profile, consider uploading your continuing education activities whenever you earn them! While you are logged on, also remember to keep your contact information up to date so that you receive up-to-date information and notifications. To login to your online profile, go to: Log your continuing education under credentials > continuing education.
