Candidates for the Certification of Professional Achievement Program must complete the program of study as defined by the appropriate department.

I took my first CVN class and it took up every minute of my spare time, but I learned a tremendous amount and that is GREAT !!! The professor I had was very good, he explained extremely well, taught us how to apply the things we learned, and was very fair with the tests. The teaching assistant always answered questions fast and he was very helpful. This program enables me to focus my time on learning what I want to learn and not spend unnecessary time traveling.
