Essential WorkWellness is pleased to offer resources for ergonomic education and online continuing education (CE).

Learning activities will be added on an ongoing basis, so bookmark this page to track updates.

Essential WorkWellness offers online learning activities for a small fee. Why the fee? Some professions require that continuing education activities be approved by a credentialing organization. These organizations generally charge several hundred dollars to the sponsor of the learning activity for CE approval. As a result, we must charge a minimal fee to offset our expenses.
Online CE activities: You will receive a certificate after successfully completing the post test following the online learning module.
