Nationally Certified Resume Writer Certification 

Unparalleled Excellence in Resume Writing


Becoming a Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW) associates you with the NRWA's standards of resume excellence, which reflect sales-focused, relevant, succinct career search documents that are quality-oriented and visually appealing. 

To earn your certification as an NCRW, you must be a member in good standing with the NRWA and complete the Certification Process. 

NCRW CERTIFICATION PRICING

$175 NRWA Membership

$75 Writing Sample Review

$250 Exam Registration

Additional costs include costs for continuing education credits and potential exam retake fees.

THE NCRW CERTIFICATION PROCESS:

Step 1: Sample Review

The sample submission is to help gauge where you are with your current skills and if you need to prepare more to successfully pass the test. You will receive feedback from an NCRW commission grader that will help you prepare for the test or to submit another sample, if needed.

Step 2: CE Units (CEU)

NCRW candidates must report 10 Continuing Education Units (CEU) that the candidate has earned within three years prior to taking the NCRW Exam. CEUs can be earned from a variety of sources including presentations, conferences and workshops, coursework, and more.

NCRW status is valid for three years. To maintain status, NCRWs must maintain continuous membership in the NRWA and earn at least 15 CEUs between three-year renewals.

Step 3: Exam

After completing steps 1 and 2, NCRW candidates may register for the two-part examination. The first part of the exam is a timed proofreading exam of a resume that is full of errors. In the second part of the exam, candidates will be provided a candidate profile and asked to write a resume and cover letter based on the profile provided.
