Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA)

The certification in Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA), developed in partnership with CaLP, covers the essential knowledge and skills needed by everyone involved in cash transfer programming regardless of their specific job role. Taking its starting point in the CaLP competency framework, the certification competency outline has drawn on the input of hundreds of cash practitioners.

The CVA Certification is currently under development and will be launched in March 2019.
