Accredited in Business Appraisal Review (ABAR)
ABAR™—Accredited in Business Appraisal Review™
In 2016, NACVA’s Executive Advisory Board suspended the ABAR program for an undetermined period to reevaluate the training and credentialing requirements for the certification.
The ABAR designation is the valuation profession’s only credential certifying competence in the review of business appraisal reports. As such, the ABAR credential is specially designed for business valuators whose work involves the review of valuation reports and analysis performed by others—a select group that includes managers, expert witnesses, attorneys, coaches, mentors, trainers, and government appraisers. An important added benefit of the ABAR credential is that preparing for and maintaining the designation helps appraisers significantly improve their own report-writing skills.
