CVPM Exam Goes Electronic
The VHMA planned to replace the Certified Veterinary Practice Manager examination with an electronic version in March.
The Veterinary Hospital Managers Association planned to replace the paper and pencil Certified Veterinary Practice Manager examination with an electronic version in March.
The 20-year-old paper and pencil examinations were labor intensive, requiring several proctors and, in some cases, extensive travel for candidates to sit for the test in designated locations.
The electronic standard will increase the cost to take the test, but will allow it to be offered at a greater number of locations without compromising test security, according to Christine Shupe, C.A.E., executive director of the VHMA.
