Maintaining a Certification
Share |

Becoming certified is a great accomplishment. Do not let the hard work and effort put into becoming certified go to waste by not maintaining your certification. In order to maintain your designation, you must adhere to the guidelines found in the SAVE International® Certification Program Manual.

Remember, it is your responsibility to keep your certification current. Individuals who allow their certification to expire are not permitted to use the VMA or CVS designation. An individual with an expired certification who continues to use their certification designation will be referred to the SAVE Ethics Committee for appropriate action.
