IAVM offers two certifications: the Certified Venue Executive (CVE) and the Certified Venue Professional (CVP).

CVE and CVP applications should be submitted online through the member dashboard using the CVP/CVE tab. You will be able to verify your IAVM involvement, submit your application, and pay the application fee. Fees for study materials and exams may also be paid online at the appropriate time.  

CVE applications are accepted yearly from September 1 - November 1. CVP applications are accepted year round. CVE and CVP designations must be renewed every three years; renewal applications are accepted October 1 - January 1. 

CVEs hold the top two positions within a venue or organization with titles including CEO, President, Executive Director, General Manager, or Senior Management and are active in the industry as leaders and innovators.

CVPs are recognized professional in middle to senior level management positions of public assembly venues.
