Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Posted by: SAVE International
By Bob Rude, PE, CVS-Life – Chairman, SAVE International Certification Board
The SAVE International Certified Value Specialist (CVS) examination has been changed slightly to better conform to the new Function Analysis Guide. This new guide has been available now for over nine months and candidates should now be fully aware of the contents. References to Customer FAST and Technical FAST have been removed.
Candidates should study the new Function Analysis Guide. The CVS examination will be graded in conformance to this new guide. This is only an interim examination. In September 2017, an all-new examination will be given that tests against the new Core Competency requirements.
All current training, testing and processes will remain in effect until September 1, 2017 at which time all new processes will take effect. Therefore, if you are close to completing your requirements, please feel free to maintain your own schedules for CVS certification and follow through at this time.
