Confidence with Character. It's a Trine thing.

EMP Certification

What is this program?
The EMP certification program is a wellness initiative designed for all Trine students who would like to learn to live healthy lifestyles. The program's focus is to help students make positive decisions in three areas – emotional, mental and physical wellness. These interrelated components are essential to living a balanced and healthy life.

Trine's EMP program focuses on a variety of topics, presented in many different ways. In order to receive an EMP certification, students must earn a minimum of 100 points. Points may be earned over a two-year period; however, students are encouraged to complete the certification in one year.
Depending on the programs a student attends, the certification can be earned by attending as few as eight sessions. There will be plenty of opportunities to attend sessions throughout the year, and a student does not have to attend every workshop to receive a certification.

What are the benefits of the program?
Completing the EMP certification is a way to improve one’s overall well–being and achieve a healthy lifestyle. By learning how to live a balanced life, students become wellness advocates and are better equipped to help themselves, friends, family and the community. Throughout the certification programs, students will learn how to:

  • Improve overall health and well–being
  • Maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle
  • Respond to a crisis situation
  • Learn skills to help yourself or others deal with an unhealthy relationship or situation
  • Learn skills to cope with stress
  • Develop a sense of emotional, mental, and physical balance

These skills are beneficial in a student’s personal life and are also transferable to the workplace. Employers will be impressed to see that a student has taken the initiative to learn how to live a balanced life. A balanced individual makes a happy, more productive employee.

Points can be earned over a two year period; however, we encourage you to complete the certification in one year. You will not have to attend every event throughout the year to obtain your certification, as long as you accrue 100 points. If programs are offered multiple times, points will only be awarded for one session of the program. To receive points, you will need to sign in at the beginning of the program and you will need to sign out at the end of the program.
