CVPM Members,

As a CVPM member, I cannot impress upon you enough how important your role is in the continuation of the CVPM examination validation process. CVPM member support is essential to maintaining a quality certification program. By submitting new potential examination questions annually CVPMs ensure that the examination stays relevant and maintains high standards. 


The Certification Board appreciates your continued support and relies on your expert knowledge and experience to maintain the integrity of the CVPM program.


How You Can Give Back

CVPM members who submit five (5) potential test questions get their name entered for a $100 gift card and get one (1) continuing education credit toward their renewal. The name will be drawn at the CVPM Annual Membership Meeting to be held Friday, September 11, 2015 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA. Deadline for submissions is: Wednesday, August 19, 2015


Provided below is the current CVPM Study Guide and Recommended Read List - please use this as a resource for your question development. The Task Analysis Outline included in the Study Guide identifies the content areas represented on the examination. The Test Blueprint, also included in the Study Guide, identifies the weight that each domain represents on the examination. The Recommended Reading List provides the current list of publications that have been used in the documentation and validation of examination questions in the database.


MOST IMPORTANT: All question submissions must be referenced by a source - include the publication title, author, publication (if applicable, i.e., Second Edition), page number and date.


You may submit your examination items by fax (888-795-4520). A question drafting sheet is provided for your use. Submit a drafting sheet for each question OR submit your examination items online - again complete the online form for each question submission.


A Question Writing Guide is available to help you develop quality questions.
