The office staff would like to remind all CAVs that renewals should be RECEIVED by the Supreme Office at least 30 days prior to the CAV expiration date. The 30 days prior serve as a cushion for any problems that may arise (not received, incomplete, online system error, etc.). Volunteers who choose to renew after the 30 days are taking an inherent risk that their CAV may not be renewed if any problems are encountered.
The same rules apply with online applications and renewals. If your CAV has expired, you MUST take a new training class and reapply. Applications must be submitted within 6 months of training.
Please read the instructions VERY carefully. There are special form requirements for certain jurisdictions.
All materials and payment must be submitted on or before your expiration date to be considered on-time. Materials will not be accepted prior to 90 days before your expiration date.
With the new system, you will NOT receive a CAV card. The email congratulating you on your application/renewal will serve as your proof of certification. Note, your renewal and application are not automatic. The Supreme Office has to manually review your information.
Having trouble? Contact the Supreme Office by phone or email for help.
