Information Regarding AVA Exam
To qualify for the Accredited Valuation Analyst (AVA) designation, the applicant must:
1. Hold a business degree (i.e., management, economics, finance, marketing, accounting, or other business field) and/or an MBA (masters of business administration) or higher business degree from an accredited college or university;
2. Be able to demonstrate with business references or attestations from previous employers and/or partners substantial experience in business valuation. For this purpose, substantial could mean:
1. Two years or more of fulltime or equivalent experience in business valuation and related disciplines (such as mergers and acquisition work, securities analyst for a major brokerage concern, economic loss analysis, etc.); or
2. Having performed ten or more business valuations where the applicant’s role was significant enough to be referenced in the valuation report or a signatory on the report; or
3. Being able to demonstrate substantial knowledge of business valuation theory, methodologies and practices. For example, having a combination of published works on the subject and completed either a Ph.D. in finance or economics or D.B.A. from an accredited institution of higher education and having some work experience. Or, having obtained an accreditation from another recognized valuation-accrediting organization.
3. Be a member in good standing with NACVA;
4. Attend an optional five-day training program;
5. Submit three personal and three business references and a minimum of one letter of recommendation from an employer, CPA or business associate; and
6. Pass a comprehensive two-part examination. Part One is a five-hour proctored exam (see below), and Part Two is a take-home/in-office exam that incorporates a standardized case study (provided by NACVA) that requires performing a complete business valuation. Part Two of our exam takes 40–60 hours to complete.
An application to take the examination must be submitted prior to issuance of the exam. To hold an active AVA designation, individuals must maintain current membership in NACVA. AVAs who allow their membership to lapse will lose their certification, and must reapply to become certified if they later choose to reinstate their membership.
