World's Premier Resume Training & Certification Organization


Flagship Resume Training & Certification Program

RWA is the first comprehensive, strategically focused resume training program, guaranteed to teach you how to write powerful and effective resumes. Whether you're a beginning resume writer who wants to learn the art of resume writing or an experienced writer who wants to strengthen the breadth and depth of your expertise, RWA is for you!

  • Part I - 5 Webcast Classes (including weekly homework assignments)
  • Part II - 3 Independent Learning Programs (industry-specific resume & cover letter writing projects)

RWA graduates will be awarded the prestigious ACRW (Academy Certified Resume Writer) credential along with 36 CEUs.

Deciding to attend the Resume Writing Academy is the best career decision I have ever made. Unlike any other resume certification program, RWA's training is extremely thorough. By the time you receive your ACRW, you are confident that you have the skills to write resumes and other career documents for anyone! Wendy and Louise themselves are extremely helpful, both in their critiques of your coursework, as well as afterwards when you are searching for writing opportunities and developing your own client base. The program paid for itself within 4 weeks of launching my business.
~ Gulnar Mewawala, MBA, MRW, ACRW, CPRW, The Emphatic Resume

“I mentioned my recent ACRW certification yesterday to a NY-based coach/trainer looking for a resume writer and the mere mention of the Academy and your names was enough to generate significant interest in talking and proceeding to the next step. I'm not sure if others considering taking your program understand the weight that the credential from your Academy provides.
~ Betty Corrado, ACRW, Career Authenticity

Enrolling in RWA is the best thing I've done in my 18-year career as a resume writer. The class made me a better interviewer, writer, designer, and strategist; it reinforced skills I already had; and it introduced me to a new level of professionalism. The ACRW designation has already contributed to increasing my revenue in two ways: it has bolstered my confidence to charge more because I finally recognize the value I provide clients, and believe clients are pre-sold when they see it listed in my email signature block and/or hear it in my voice mail message. Thank you, Louise and Wendy, for your guidance and contributions to my success!“
~ Janet Beckstrom, ACRW, CPRW, Word Crafter, Flint, MI

"Dear Louise and Wendy - A thank you is not enough. I wish there was a more “grand” word. Thank you for the impressive program, your amazing support, constant encouragement, and the great and very challenging learning opportunity that I experienced while being coached by you both. I am so proud to have earned my ACRW certification! I am sure that it will add a great value to my services. I can't wait to start the Entrepreneurial Elegance class."
~ Aya El-Mir, Lebanese American University, Beirut Campus
