Have your CEs officially recorded by sending an e-mail and documentation to the CE Admin Manager.

  • Non-NCRWs: Ten CEs in the three years prior to taking the Exam.
  • NCRWs: Fifteen CEs every three years to maintain certification.

IMPORTANT: Please maintain your own personal CE file so that any record-keeping discrepancies can be quickly resolved.

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

The NCRW Sample Submission "Ready" Recommendation: One CE for each "ready" recommendation received from an NCRW grader (maximum of two CEs). 


Published Books:  

Up to ten CEs for books on resumes and cover letters published through a major publishing company (cannot be self-published). To get credit for the CEs, 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 CEs. No more than three CEs 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 CEs 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 CEs for each presentation – up to a maximum of ten CEs 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.
