The Viticus Group (formerly WVC, Las Vegas) has alerted us they will resume CPE testing as of their July CPE dates. With this update we will begin to open scheduling via your ECFVG Online page and prioritize candidates that had confirmed CPE dates adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The following are the steps put in place to aide in priority scheduling. Please read and follow the below carefully:
- Known CPE dates for the remainder of 2020 will be opened on the ECFVG Online page exclusively for those candidates who had confirmed CPE dates adversely affected by the pandemic. These prioritized candidates will be alerted of this 1-week time period’s start and stop date by email. At the end of the 1-week priority period, the ECFVG Online scheduling will be open to all candidates for selection of CPE slots remaining (if any). Those priority candidates not able to schedule for any of the CPE slots available through the end of this year will be given 1 more priority access week prior to release of 2021 CPE dates.
- If your testing appointment was canceled as a result of the closure by a CPE site, or you withdrew due to COVID-19 related issues, you were contacted via email by the ECFVG Staff and advised of details for rescheduling your appointment. Before being alerted of rescheduling, please find the email you received or contact us to receive it again at ECFVGavma [dot] org. Any error incurred due to failing to follow the instructions laid out in the email, specific to your scenario, could lead to errors in scheduling and forfeiting of fees and/or date scheduled.
- It is likely there will not be enough CPE openings to accommodate every candidate’s reschedule, or scheduling, for 2020. The ECFVG is well aware of the hardship that the pandemic has caused for candidates and has asked the test sites if they can add extra test dates but extra dates, if any, will likely not be until 2021. Future openings will appear directly on your ECFVG Online page and can be applied to directly on the site. Please check back on your ECFVG Online page for cancellations that can be filled. Once we have the 2021 dates, for both sites, any remaining COVID-19 effected candidates NOT scheduled during the first 1-week priority period will be alerted and have a 1-week priority period to schedule 2021 dates.
Mississippi State University (MSU) does not have any updates currently. Any future cancellations by either site will be communicated to candidates via email and the ECFVG Announcement page.
Please check the ECFVG website for updates and be sure your email does not send ECFVGavma [dot] org emails to junk or spam as we will provide all updates via these two sources, so candidates do not have to call/email continuously and all effected are afforded equal opportunities.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together through this challenging time. The COVID-19 situation has caused, and will continue to cause, great uncertainty for everyone into the foreseeable future. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
