The CCWP course consists of 12 modules presented over a period of two days. Each module focuses on a specific subject that addresses real-world scenarios and instructors will use a variety of lectures, training exercises and quizzes. Instructors are industry-leading contingent workforce professionals with a deep knowledge of the course content. Attendees will be required to attend the two-day course and pass the online exam in order to become certified.
