CVRP Federal NFP By-Laws College Rules and Self-Regulation

The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (CVRP) is the self-regulatory body for Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals. The mandate of the regulatory College is to protect the public through a rigorous credentialing process where registrants have met the minimum standard of knowledge and competency by having to pass the College’s peer-reviewed certification examination. College registrants are held to comprehensive professional standards of practice, and a complaints and discipline procedure to ensure that the certified registrants are held to the highest level of professional practice to the public.

To ensure that the protection mandate to the public is invoked, the College developed a detailed Code of Ethics to align with Standards of Practice for the certified registrants, and a series of Rules to govern the practice of vocational rehabilitation registrants.
