Becoming a Diplomate

There are two ways for becoming an ECPVS diplomate:

  • via the de facto procedure (this is possible for applications up to december 2013 only)
  • via the examination procedure

De facto application is possible only up to five years after the official registration of the Constitution. Candidates should fulfill specific criteria. The procedure and requirements for de facto application can be found in the Constitution and Bylaws & Interim rules and regulations. Applications should be submitted to the ECPVS Secretary using the College's form

Persons that have followed an approved training program can be allowed to sit the examinations of ECPVS. Candidates that pass the exam are granted with the diplomate title. More information can be found in Constitution, Bylaws & Interim rules and Training program.
