  • The NACVSA considers the IRP and Master CVSA Examiner designation to be the capstone of its Professional Certification Program. The IRP is a comprehensive research task in which applied research theory intersects with real-world CVSA application. All applicants are required to devote a considerable amount of time in defining, refining and shaping their IRP.  The major criterion for the IRP is that the end-product integrates expert-level applied research rigor in the areas of review of literature, research design, and appropriate methodology. Showing mastery of the applied research process ensures applicants are consumers of pertinent literature at a level that ensures their ability to adapt and apply the skills of a research professional for the greater good of the CVSA Professional Community.  Certification as a Master Examiner implies the applicant can function as a Subject Matter Expert regarding voice stress analysis and related disciplines. It is essential that he/she perfect appropriate research skills because he/she will be expected to use    them to advance the profession once the Master Examiner Certification is awarded.

  • Payment of an application and processing fee of $195 to the NACVSA at time of application, and payment of an additional $95.00 for the professional review/acceptance of the submitted research.
