More than 100 countries have adopted the International Valuation Standards (IVS), a global set of universal valuation standards developed by the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC). The CBV Institute, Canada’s valuation professional organization (VPO), has launched an online course designed to educate practitioners on the standards and the requirements for IVS-compliant valuations. The three-hour course is based on the current version of IVS (effective Jan. 31, 2020). Successful course completion qualifies an individual with the Chartered Business Valuator designation to obtain the notation “IVS trained” on the CBV Institute and IVSC provider directories.

“Now more than ever, I believe it is crucial for valuation professionals around the world to have the ability to perform their work with consistently high competence using exceptionally high-quality standards. In an increasingly globalized world, the fabric of the valuation profession will be shaped by business needs anywhere and everywhere,” says Christine Sawchuk, president and CEO of the CBV Institute. “That is why the IVS are so important. Promulgated by one, independent, international voice, IVS reduce our international differences to serve the public interest. Closing the gap through consistency and transparency strengthens global market confidence in the valuation profession as a whole, which is a benefit to all VPOs.”

Registration in the course is open to valuation professionals and organizations worldwide who are interested in learning more about IVS through a rigorous CBV lens. For more information, click here.
