If you want to make the most of the WOWI career assessment, our workshops are the ideal solution. Not only have they been designed to develop a deeper understanding of the assessment and how to interpret it, but they’re also led by certified trainers.
Each of our Certified WOWI Trainers has a Master’s or Doctoral Degree and has been personally trained and certified by Gregory P.M. Neidert, Ph.D. who is the leading expert on the World of Work Inventory (WOWI).

The real-life examples that Dr. Neidert shared in the WOWI workshop were eye-opening for me. I've been working as a vocational rehabilitation counselor since 2003 and Dr. Neidert really opened my eyes as to how I can help my clients.

Dr. Neidert's anecdotes allowed me to put the WOWI into context with how it helps our youth and where it stands in the broader global context of career assessments. I would recommend anyone interpreting WOWI results to take this workshop. It was well worth the time and money!
