Examination Committee

The CVRP By-Law No.1 was revised and accepted at the 2014 AGM to include the Examination committee as a Standing Committee of the College.    The purpose of the committee is to meet annually to produce the highest quality, reliable and valid vocational rehabilitation examination through annual review of  the current question bank and continuing to develop, review and validate new questions.  As of March 2015, there are 700 constructed and reviewed questions, which allows  the College to have a solid question bank from which to draw the exam content and that challenges individuals taking the CVRP entrance examination.
