VMA Exam Procedures for VMF 1 Instructors

PLEASE NOTE: Testing centers that were temporarily closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic have begun to re-open with reduced capacity and/or testing schedules in order to comply with local, state and national health guidelines.


As of April 1, 2020 the procedures for individuals to take the Value Methodology Associate (VMA) exam have changed. The new procedures for candidates can be found on the SAVE International website here

The new procedures include an individual’s approval from their Value Methodology Fundamentals 1 (VMF 1) course instructor before registering for the exam and taking the it online at a Kryterion testing center. Using testing centers, which are located world-wide, is more secure and reliable (as compared to the previous remote proctoring) and allows individuals to receive their official exam score as soon as they complete the exam.

Below is information and instructions for all SAVE approved VMF 1 instructors:

  • Within two (2) weeks of the VMF 1 course completion, instructors should email their course participant list to the SAVE business office at A template that instructors should use when submitting their participant list can be found here. This template includes the necessary information required about each participant.
  • SAVE does not need the VMF 1 course certificate of completion for each participant; however, the instructor should still provide one to them for their records.
  • Upon receipt and review of the course participant list, the SAVE business office will send an email within 2-3 business days to each of the participants with full instructions on registering and scheduling their VMA exam. This email will include a link to the testing agency’s online registration platform.
  • Participants will need to register and pay for the VMA exam through the testing agency’s online registration platform. They will also select a testing center and date to take the exam.
