Having passed the AVS exam, this paper’s author was determined to achieve “Certified Value Specialist” within two years. While her journey to certification was longer than she had originally anticipated, she learned a lot about the VM methodology and herself along the way. At times, the dreaded “certification package” and “CVS® exam” seemed overwhelming; how could she manage this in addition to her other work and family responsibilities? While the path to CVS® can seem daunting, this paper focuses on the lessons learned from the school of hard knocks that the author found helpful in her journey. The learnings presented here expand on the SAVE International® Certification Program Manual (13th edition, effective January 9, 2015) with the author’s personal observations that may offer additional guidance to those on the fence about taking further steps to certification.
