MAFF Candidate Status
MAFF applicants who lack the necessary Advanced Training and/or Experience, but have passed NACVA’s proctored certification exam, can use the designation, but must display the qualification “Candidate” after the designation, i.e., “MAFF Candidate”. The designated Candidate has up to three years to fulfill the Advanced Training and/or Experience requirement. Once the Candidate has obtained the necessary training and/or experience and submitted adequate documentation thereof, the qualification of “Candidate” will no longer be required to be displayed with the designation. If such evidence is not produced within three years, the designated Candidate will lose the right to use the designation. Candidates must comply with NACVA’s recertification requirements.
