Attending a training or webinar can also be applied towards professional development unit (PDU) requirements for initial CVA Certification or CVA Renewal. CVA certification is the only internationally recognized credential in the field of Volunteer Administration. If you require proof of your participation, please contact the Nonprofit Learning Lab. CCVA will not have proof of your attendance to events that they haven’t organized. To learn more, visit: www.cvacert.org.
If you are obtaining CEUs through the Nonprofit Learning Lab, please read through the policies and regulations of the accrediting organization related to the percentage of CEUs that can be online, asynchronous or in-person. Policies change from year to year, so please check with the accrediting organization to confirm if they allow in-person, live online or pre-recorded webinars as part of their CEUs. The Nonprofit Learning Lab offers CEUs through various entities. We cannot be held responsible for knowing what percentage of CEUs you have completed; you are responsible for tracking your own CEUs. If you have questions about CEUs, please follow up with the accrediting organization.
