New CVEP badge enables verification and social sharing of skills

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. and WASHINGTON, D.C. – APRIL 26, 2016 – iCohere is pleased to announce the addition of a digital certificate badge to our Certified Virtual Event Producer (CVEP) program. The badge provides a digital means of representing the achievement of CVEP certification through a range of contexts, such as business profiles, social media, email signatures, and business websites.

Currently, 360 professionals from the nonprofit, corporate and government sectors have obtained their CVEP certificate. A directory of current CVEP professionals is published at Potential employers, clients and industry colleagues can use the website to verify certified virtual meeting production professionals and review the skills mastered in earning the CVEP certificate.

"The CVEP training has equipped me and our organization with the necessary knowledge and tools to successfully standup virtual meetings and webinars," said Joseph Hall, Jr., HQ CAP deputy director, IT, with the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary. "Over the past year, we have implemented many virtual platforms which has allowed our staff and membership to collaborate without incurring logistical conflicts and placing a strain on travel budgets. I highly recommend the CVEP course to anyone interested in implementing virtual meetings and webinars."

Certified Virtual Event Producer (CVEP) Certificate


The CVEP certificate, which can only be obtained by completing the Meetings Without Walls online course, acknowledges expertise in planning and implementing virtual meetings and events.

To become certified, candidates are required to complete the six-week course, all assignments, and six module exams. Candidates receive the benefits of live interactive training sessions, interaction with fellow candidates, a distinguished digital badge, and an extensive virtual event planning kit.

While recertification is not required as a CVEP, candidates receive ongoing access to course materials, new content as it is developed, and continuing education through the iCohere Academy, a worldwide professional community of practice dedicated to the evolution of unified learning and virtual meetings.

"For me, CVEP represents commitment to quality virtual learning experiences. The CVEP recognition shows the world that the holder has knowledge, skills, and readiness to produce virtual events — experiences for today, tomorrow, and beyond," said Education Architect and Consultant Amanda Batson, Ph.D., CVEP.

In 2016, the CVEP course will only be offered one time and begins April 27. Nonprofit and government agencies receive a discount on registration. Organizations and professionals seeking additional information about the CVEP certificate should contact iCohere at 202-870-6146 and register at
