Mature Route to qualification
A person who has extensive experience and knowledge of Value Management in various sectors of the economy or has an existing qualification in Value Management, Value Engineering, or Value Analysis can apply to the Certification Board to be considered for award of a qualification based on evidence of their knowledge and experience.
This would be a special exception to the normal route, anyone wishing to be considered via this route must make contact with the chairman of the Certification Board.
The V4E Board has agreed a reciprocity agreement with SAVE International to enable a person who has a Certified Value Specialist (CVS) qualification to be awarded a Professional in Value Management (PVM) qualification and vice versa. It is recommended that candidates wishing to apply using this route should submit their application to the Chair of the Certification Board. A CVS will require additional knowledge of the application of Value Management at more strategic levels usually by attending a VM3 course under the European Training and Certification System.
In the same way, a PVM can apply to SAVE International for the CVS qualification, but it should be noted that they will need to present specific experience of using the SAVE International Value Methodology.
