Obtaining CEUs for the NCRW Certification & Recertification

Non-NCRWs (Members who have not acquired the NCRW certification)

Published Books: Up to ten CEUs for books on resumes and cover letters published through a major publishing company (cannot be self-published). To get credit for the CEUs, you must submit a copy of the book to the Certification Chair. If you have a self-published book or an electronic book it has to be submitted to the Certification Chair for determination of CEUs. No more than three CEUs will be given for self-published books. A web site is not considered a self-published book.

Conference Presentation Delivery (Resume Writing, Cover Letter Writing, and CV Topics):
  • Featured presenters at The NRWA conferences will receive two CEUs for each presentation. Presenters must turn in all of their materials/handouts prior to the conference for review by the Certification Commission.
  • Featured presenters at non-NRWA conferences to an audience of industry (career services) professionals will receive two CEUs for each presentation – up to a maximum of ten CEUs in three years. Presenters must submit proof of making the presentation and the title along with the amount of time for the presentation.
A featured presenter is classified as an individual who has prepared a specific presentation on some facet of resume and cover letter writing – not someone who sits on a panel.
