CVE/CWA/CCAA Continuing Education

To maintain certification, CVEs, CWAs, and CCAAs must renew their certification every 5 years via continuing education (CE).

The continuing education requirement mandates that 80 hours of continuing education must be completed within the current five-year period. Certified individuals must also ensure that all CE activities for certification renewal fall within designated Focus Areas outlined in the CVE/CWA/CCAA Criteria for Certification Renewal and Continuing Education manual.

Please note:

  • All CE must be submitted through the CRCC Online Portal.
  • Completion dates of CE hours submitted for the current renewal cycle MUST fall within certificant's current five-year period.
  • It is highly recommended that individuals submit continuing education hours as they are completed.
  • CRCC reviews and qualifies all CVE/CWA/CCAA continuing education submissions for approval and accumulation towards certification renewal.

Please refer to specific information regarding CE criteria, documentation, and submission as detailed in the CVE/CWA/CCAA Criteria for Certification Renewal and Continuing Education.
