Eligibility for Certification
Applicants are generally notified of their acceptance within a week of the submission and payment, with some exceptions. To be eligible for the official NCVAN certification which is recognized by the National Service Practitioner Certification Academy and the National Organization for Victim Assistance, applicants must have 6 months experience in the field of victim services, must complete the application, must possess a clean criminal background, and must complete the entirety of NCVAN'S week-long certification training.
Exceptions are occasionally made for those who may otherwise wish to attend the training and receive a "training certificate" in lieu of the requirements, if other variables are met. If a participant believes there are circumstances which warrant special consideration, such as taking on a new role for a recognized agency in working primarily with victims of crime, or past direct experience working directly with victims of crime, the participant should send an email (upon submitting the application and payment) to the director of training at firstname.lastname@example.org. The email should include a description of the applicant's circumstances.
The application fee is $200.00. Upon completion and submission of the application form below, applicants are redirected to a secure page to make payment. Payment can be made by credit card or by PayPal to NCVAN's PayPal account. Any party making a payment on behalf of an applicant must indicate the name of the person for whom the payment is being made, at the time of payment. The application is only complete after full payment is made.
Should a participant be unable to attend, credit for the payment can be applied to a future session. Participants who are not accepted into the Academy will be refunded. Should technical challenges occur in making the payment please contact Elizabeth Wexler at email@example.com or call (919)831-2857 for assistance. If alternatives to credit card payments are needed contact NCVAN directly to coordinate. All meals, travel and hotel are the responsibility of applicant. Information about the early-bird discount hotel rate is available on the website.
