  • CWNT - The CWNT certification is an instructor certification, and must be maintained more rigorously and more often than other certifications. There is a yearly renewal fee of $200.  If you are a CWNT, you must recertify at each level you teach each time that an exam is updated.  For example, when CWxx-x01 is upgraded to CWxx-x02, each CWNT had 90 days to recertify at the instructor level (80%) for exam CWxx-x02 in order to be qualified and authorized to teach the CWxx training class.
