National Wellness Institute Courses

Financial Wellness Training with the National Wellness Institute & the Foundation for Financial Wellness

The National Wellness Institute (NWI) has partnered with the Foundation for Financial Wellness (FFW) — whose team includes the former Wellness Program Director at NASA, an award-winning educator, and a top-performing financial advisor — to develop courses that look at financial wellness through the lens of NWI’s Six Dimensions of Wellness model. Typically, people say that after taking part in one of FFW’s learning experience, their employees are less distracted, more engaged, and more satisfied with their work and pay, thus enhancing their overall wellness.
Trainings include two self-paced, interactive eLearning courses that align with the NWI Wellness Promotion Competency model and offer evidence-informed tools and training:
  1. A 7-credit* “Financial Wellness Facilitator Certificate” course
  2. A 2-credit “The Case for Financial Wellness” course (Note: this course is included in the Facilitator Certificate course but can be taken a la carte).
