The CVPM program is a certification program for veterinary practice managers, that qualifies the knowledge and experience necessary to successfully manage the ever-changing business environment of today's veterinary practices.

Professional growth is enhanced by committing to an honest and accurate appraisal of professional strengths and weaknesses.

VHMA is pleased to announce that practice management professionals can now access a self-assessment tool that will allow them to evaluate their professional performance. The Empower U Self-Assessment test is a non-proctored examination modeled after the CVPM examination and is available to all practice management professionals.

Empower U is a highly effective tool, which can be used to identify professional strengths and weaknesses and pinpoint areas for improvement.

Empower U focuses on management knowledge in key areas: Human Resources, Law and Ethics, Marketing, Organization of the Practice, and Finance. The tool’s true-false and multiple-choice questions about relevant management knowledge are presented in a format that is similar to the CVPM examination.

The Empower U Self-Assessment test contains 50-items per form. Both U.S. and Canadian forms are available. Multiple U.S. forms are offered, each form contains a different set questions. Participants will be provided with the correct answer and the answer source for those questions they answer incorrectly.

The tests are available 24/7 through the VHMA Webassessor. There is no limit on the number of times the forms can be used.

Empower U Self-Assessment is intended for individual, personal use only. The examinations are not subject to the rigorous development process used for the CVPM examinations, nor is Empower U intended as a formal preparation form for the CVPM examinations.

Getting Started:    
1. Create a new account by clicking on the "create new account" link in the upper right corner.
2. Log into your account.
3. Schedule your assessment by clicking on the "Register for an Assessment" menu bar option.
