Additional opportunities to earn ABV credential announced.
The next examination period will run from July 26 through July 31, with candidates being able to sit for the examination at any Prometrics examination center throughout the U.S. The multiple-day examination window and the wider availability of exam testing sites was first implemented in the fall of 2003 versus the one-day examination previously administered only through selected state CPA societies. The fall 2004 examination window will run from Nov. 15 through Nov. 30.
It is highly recommended that candidates considering sitting for the ABV examination should attend the two-day ABV Examination Review course as an integral step to successful performance on the exam itself. Each course is team-taught by two discussion leaders who are carefully screened and selected based on their knowledge and teaching skills. Two courses scheduled for this June are being offered through the Nevada Society of CPAs (June 3-4; www.nevadacpa.org) and the Georgia Society of CPAs (June 14-15; www.gscpa.org).
The ABV credential is held by more than 1,500 CPAs who are involved in business appraisal services. Entry to the credential is based on fulfillment of the examination component, a life-long learning component and an experience requirement under the parameters of the "Multiple Entry Points System" adopted by the AICPA for all of its specialty credentials. Candidates who successfully complete the ABV exam have up to 24 months to fulfill the life-long learning and experience requirements needed to be granted the credential.
