Application Review and Acceptance
Prior to admission into a certification program, each individual must complete a membership application. Once you have submitted your completed application with the application fee ($250), TVIB will review your application.
You should be prepared to answer any potential questions we may have about your work experience, education and desired level of certification either via telephone or email. Once TVIB makes a decision on your application, TVIB will notify you and advise you on the next steps for completing your certification, including registering for the next available relevant course(s) for the credential you are seeking.
You have one year from the date of your initial application to provide any missing documents in their application, take the certification course and pass the final exam to become certified. If you’re unable to complete the application and certification process within one year, you will be required to restart the process.
