Certification: The Well Project will provide a series of 5 webinars throughout the year. The Well Project will issue certificates of completion for those who participate in, and complete a pre- and post-assessment for all webinars. The webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to participate live and will be accessible for one month after they initially take place. If you are accessing the recording of the webinar, you still need to complete the pre-and post-assessments. A final program evaluation will also be required for the certificate of completion.
