Fees

There are two components of the CVMA CVAProgram where fees are assessed.

  1. Final Examination and Certification – Includes the final examination, a certificate of completion, a two-year certification and a one year membership in CVMA upon successful completion of the final exam.
  2. Monthly online access –Allows up to 20 staff members to access the CVMA CVA educational program and the complete ACT library covering a variety of educational tools for the entire hospital staff (receptionists, managers, technicians, kennel personnel, and veterinary assistants) including dozens of RACE approved CE programs at no additional charge. There are no long term contracts.

To take advantage of the CVMA CVA Program, practices are required to make an initial commitment of 1 pre-paid certification and the first month’s access fee.
