CVA Certification

The PAVRO Board of Directors is pleased to announce that on March 30th, 2022 the membership approved a partnership with the CCVA in offering the Certificate of Volunteer Administration (CVA) to PAVRO members. At the same time, PAVRO’s existing Certification Committee will continue to recertify current CVRM holders. 

The recording of the meeting is available upon request. You can also check out additional information on our Certification FAQ page.

This exciting new partnership will allow all active PAVRO members interested in pursuing this designation to register for the CVA exam at the CCVA partner discount rate for the two 2024 exam periods in April and October. Current CVRM holders are eligible to bypass the usual CVA application process and simply sign up for the exam. 

Please log into your PAVRO account to access the CVA How to Apply page and the recording of our member-only CVA info session.
