The Board of Certified Vocational Evaluators was formed by credentialed CVEs with a purpose of restoring the CVE.
Board of Certified Vocational Evaluators P.O. Box 9436, Coral Springs, FL 33075-9436 To All Current Certified Vocational Evaluators and others interested in securing the credential:
Regretfully, in the fall of 2008 the Commission on Certification of Work Adjustment and Vocational Evaluation Specialists (CCWAVES) dissolved. Effective April 1, 2009 the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) graciously assumed the responsibilities to oversee and administer the maintenance and renewal processes for vocational assessment professionals. On January 18, 2011 the Board of Certified Vocational Evaluators (BCVE) was incorporated.
BCVE has set as its main focus the goal of maintaining the high standards and integrity of the Certified Vocational Evaluator (CVE) credential and eventually fully restoring the credential. A registry of variously credentialed individuals is not the same as a nationally Certified Vocational Evaluator with all the rights and obligations as such.
To that end, we have elected officers, all of which are current Certified Vocational Evaluators in good standing. We have held meetings to establish a corporate structure instituting by-laws, establishing a mission statement and creating five BCVE regions for representation on our proposed credentialing commission. We Intend to develop a new certification examination to encourage professionals to enter the field.
In order to sustain this high level of professional credential and create a strong national organization, we need all Certified Vocational Evaluators to join us in maintaining the standard for vocational evaluation. Our most immediate goal is to request your support in order to establish a strong, inclusive network of CVEs that can carry our mission forward with success.
BCVE is committed to developing and maintaining exemplary standards of practice for professionals who are, or wish to become, Certified Vocational Evaluators. BCVE strives to elevate the quality of services provided so that each and every professional will be certified at a standard level of competency, and not simply listed in a registry.
Please email or give us a call and become a part of this dynamic movement to reclaim our credential. By joining our energetic group of professionals who are dedicated to preserving the integrity of the CVE you’ll assist in our ability to reinstate this respected credential in the near future.
Since writing the above, The BCVE has been able to progress the effort for a restoration of the CVE credential. We have engaged the active interest of a major organization which has agreed in principle to affiliate with us in this effort. We are in a position that will enable the BCVE to become an independent credentialing board within an agency that will provide administration of the credential.
The revised credential will meet the high (National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and the Institute for Credentialing Excellent (ICE) ) standards for a professional credential. We are also looking forward to affiliating with a membership organization interested in promoting the CVE for their membership. CRCC, the organization currently maintaining the CVE is aware of our project and has indicated a willingness to cooperate with a transition to restoration of the credential.
