The National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts said that its Certified Valuation Analyst and Accredited Valuation Analyst designations have received certification from the National Organization for Competency Assurance.

NOCA's National Commission for Certifying Agencies accredited NACVA's CVA and AVA designations, giving the credentials extra weight. "Our work with NOCA was a rigorous and drawn-out process that took more than three-and-one-half years, and forced us to extensively document every facet of our certification program," said NACVA CEO Parnell Black in a statement. "It was well worth it. NOCA is highly credible, internationally recognized, and holds the very highest standards."

NOCA organizational members include the American Institute of CPAs, the Association of Financial Professionals, the CFA Institute, the Institute of Internal Auditors and other groups.

NACVA recently acquired the assets of a rival valuation organization, the Institute of Business Appraisers (see Institute of Business Appraisers' Assets Sold).
