    VDP - Virginia Destination Professional                                      Certification

    Program Registration

    The VACVB VDP certification is a unique Virginia-centric DMO individual professional certification. Using activities and events you have participated in since January 1, 2015 and forward, you may register for this certification program. There are two components to this certification program, a knowledge component and an experiential component, which must be completed to earn the VDP certification

    Activities counting towards the certification requirements must have occurred within the past two years.  Renewal of your certification must be done two years after it is achieved  to maintain your credentials. Before you submit materials, please register for the program.  Your registration fee does not expire, but when you achieve the VDP all activities must be within the two year window.

    For example, all candidates who achieve their VDP in 2017 must have all required activities completed since January 1, 2015.
