The Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration advances the profession and practice of volunteer resource management by:

  • Articulating core competencies for the profession of volunteer administration
  • Certifying individuals who demonstrate knowledge and competence in the leadership of volunteers.
  • Advancing standards of ethical practice
  • Promoting professional development and education

Certified in Volunteer Administration (CVA) is the only international professional certification in the field of volunteer resources management. Originally developed by the Association for Volunteer Administration (AVA) several decades ago, the program is now sponsored by the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration (CCVA). The CVA credential reflects mastery of the knowledge required of practitioners in this field as measured through an exam and peer assessment process.
