Credential Laddering

As the field of Vocational Rehabilitation continues to grow and develop, so does the diversity of educational opportunities that are available to VR Professionals. In recognition of this, CVRP encourages and supports Registrants to increase their levels of skill within the field. Registrants who hold the professional credentials of CVRP and CCVE in good standing are eligible to apply for the credential laddering to the status of Fellow or Diplomate.


The primary purpose of CCVE, CCVE(F) and CCVE(D) certifications is to provide assurance to the public that those professionals engaged in vocational evaluation meet acceptable standards of minimum knowledge, performance and quality. Professionals who earn the designation of Certified Vocational Evaluator (CCVE) and/or Certified Vocational Evaluator/Fellow (CCVE(F)) or Certified/Vocational Evaluation/Diplomat (CCVE(D)) have demonstrated that, based on the criteria established by the College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals, they possess an acceptable minimum level of knowledge and expertise with regard to the practice of Vocational Evaluation, which includes the methodology of a Transferable Skills Analysis.
