Certified Valuation Analyst® (CVA®)

The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts™ (NACVA®) trains and certifies CVAs to perform business valuations as a service to both the consulting community and the users of their services. Through training and rigorous testing, CVAs demonstrate they are qualified to provide capable and professionally executed valuation services. NACVA recommends specific training as a prerequisite to certification to assure that practitioners have the knowledge and understanding necessary to perform competent services, and to assure a level of consistency and continuity in their work product. Users of valuation services benefit by having greater confidence that the service they receive is professional in quality, adheres to industry standards of practice, and meets a level of expertise the Association deems credible and worthy of one of its certified members.

Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF®)
The MAFF credential is offered through a subsidiary of NACVA, the Financial Forensics Institute™. It is designed to provide assurance to the legal and business communities—the primary users of financial forensics services—that the designee possesses a level of experience and knowledge deemed acceptable by the Association to provide competent and professional financial forensic support services. Applicants can apply in one of seven areas of specialty, any of which lead to earning one’s MAFF credential.

Accredited in Business Appraisal Review Designation™ (ABAR™)
The ABAR designation is the valuation profession’s only credential certifying competence in the review of business appraisal reports. As such, the ABAR credential is specially designed for business valuators whose work involves the review of valuation reports and analysis performed by others—a select group that includes managers, expert witnesses, attorneys, coaches, mentors, trainers, and government appraisers. An important added benefit of the ABAR credential is that preparing for and maintaining the designation helps appraisers significantly improve their own report writing skills.

Transaction Advisory Services
The Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) Workshop is a newly-developed course designed to help consulting practices and CPA firms grow revenues and differentiate their service offering.  This training enhances the value they bring to their clients to help them grow, optimize, and protect their company’s value, to position them for a successful exit. This workshop explores the changing M&A regulations and shifts the emphasis of previous M&A training programs from transaction-centric to shareholder value-centric where the M&A transaction is a “means to an end” rather than the “end” itself.
