Registration is open until March 24 for the next Certified Legal Video Specialist Production Exam being held April 1-2 at NCRA’s headquarters in Reston, Va.
Candidates who attend the April dates may also register for the Hands-on Training session which is held in conjunction with the Production Exam. The Hands-on session will be held Thursday afternoon, March 31.
During the Production Exam, candidates will run the show at a staged deposition and be graded on their ability to follow video deposition guidelines and to produce a usable, high-quality video of the deposition. Candidates must have taken the mandatory CLVS Certification Workshop first, which is available online, and are strongly encouraged to take the optional Hands-on Training.
Candidates looking to earn their CLVS by early summer may also take the CLVS Written Knowledge Test (WKT) in April if they register by March 31. Candidates are required to complete the CLVS Mandatory Certification Workshop online first as questions on the exam are developed from the educational materials provided.
The CLVS Production Exam is administered two times a year, spring and fall. The cost of the exam is $350 for NCRA members and $450 for nonmembers. For cost and registration information for the CLVS Mandatory Certification Workshop, optional Hands-on Training, and CLVS WKT visit NCRA.org/CLVS.
NCRA members who hold another credential, such as the Registered Professional Reporter (RPR), can earn 0.25 PDC each after passing the CLVS Written Knowledge Test and the CLVS Production Exam.
