NCRA's Certified Legal Video Specialist (CLVS) Program
The CLVS program sets and enforces standards for competency in the capture, utilization, and retention of legal video and promotes awareness of these standards within the legal marketplace. NCRA strongly recommends the use of a CLVS to ensure the integrity of both the video of legal proceedings and the official transcript.
The CLVS certification process is comprised of three steps. Candidates must attend a seminar and pass both a written and a practical exam. For more information about the certification process, including upcoming dates and registration fees, visit the CLVS Certification Process page.
Questions About the CLVS CEU Requirement?
The CLVS CEU requirement first took effect on October 1, 2010. If you were an active CLVS as of that date, you were required to earn and report at least 1.0 CEU (the equivalent of 10 hours of approved formal learning) by the end of your first three-year CEU cycle on September 30, 2013. If you earned your CLVS certification after October 1, 2010, your first three-year cycle began on the October 1 after you became certified.
