NH Wraparound Coordinator Certification
The NH Wraparound Coordinator certification process is designed to maintain the integrity, competency, and rigor for which the practice was intended. Individuals must obtain certification within 12-18 months of beginning to work with families and may not begin to work with families until they have trained in Modules 1-3.
The certification is good for 24 months, and the recertification process can begin after 18 months of the initial certification. All certifications expire at 24 months after the certification date.
